Bill O'Reilly is a working person's author. He knows how to tell the story in a way that is accurate while appreciating the reader's time.

Legendary journalist Bill O'Reilly has turned out another great book. His latest book is on the candidacy and presidency of Donald J. Trump. His previous books have focused on Jesus Christ, General George Patton, President Abraham Lincoln, and President John F. Kennedy.

O'Reilly knows how to write an engaging book. The difference between his other books and this one is his personal experience with the subject. O'Reilly has known President Trump for over 30 years. Long before our current president descended the escalator at Trump Plaza to announce his long-shot candidacy, he had a relationship with Bill O'Reilly.

You can purchase a copy of The United States of Trump here.

This isn't a hagiography. O'Reilly, as he always does, tells the good and the bad about the man who became president against all odds.

O'Reilly nails down the four tent poles of the Trump presidency:

1. Improving the Economy

2. Stopping Illegal Immigration

3. Defeating Islamic Terrorism

4. Stopping Foreign Nations From Ripping Off America

O'Reilly has covered and interviewed world leaders for decades. He writes in The United States Of Trump about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama and how they compare to President Trump.

Pick up a copy of O'Reilly's latest book regardless of how you feel about President Trump at this moment. This book will confirm some of your beliefs and shake some of your beliefs and that is what a good book should do for a reader.
