Availability: Ready to download

A newsmaking investigation into the businesses of President Trump and the people around him, showing how the American political system turned into a massive investment opportunity. By holding onto his businesses, Donald Trump launched an unprecedented experiment: What happens to a multi-billion-dollar business when its leader ascends to the presidency of the United States? A newsmaking investigation into the businesses of President Trump and the people around him, showing how the American political system turned into a massive investment opportunity. By holding onto his businesses, Donald Trump launched an unprecedented experiment: What happens to a multi-billion-dollar business when its leader ascends to the presidency of the United States? And more importantly, what happens to the United States? White House, Inc. is the definitive book on money and politics in the Trump era. It examines every aspect of the president's portfolio: his exclusive clubs, D.C. hotel, overseas partnerships, commercial properties, personal mansions and private planes. It also investigates Trump associates. The president's disregard for norms set the tone at the top of the federal government, sparking a trickle-down ethics crisis with no precedent in modern American history. Trump appointed an inner circle of centimillionaires and billionaires--including Jared Kushner, Wilbur Ross and Carl Icahn--who all arrived in Washington with their own conflict-ridden portfolios. With the president as their guide, they busted through barriers meant to separate their financial holdings from their government roles. Alexander tracks hundreds of millions flowing freely between big businesses and President Trump. He explains, in plain language, how Donald Trump bought and sold the presidency. In the tradition of game-changing political exposés like Dark Money, White House, Inc. represents the most complete financial account of the Trump presidency.

    Money, Money, Money..... Oh, the rich get richer and the poor well -it is what it is! Sorry folks nothing to see here as the same old news about how DT has been born with the golden spoon and advanced to GO with enablers that open the flood gates and allow him to demolish our democracy one step at a time. Sure he's not hurting for money but it's on the backs of hard working people and unsuspecting wives that he has made many of his fortunes. Leaving others in poverty, unpaid or low waged employees, Money, Money, Money..... Oh, the rich get richer and the poor well -it is what it is! Sorry folks nothing to see here as the same old news about how DT has been born with the golden spoon and advanced to GO with enablers that open the flood gates and allow him to demolish our democracy one step at a time. Sure he's not hurting for money but it's on the backs of hard working people and unsuspecting wives that he has made many of his fortunes. Leaving others in poverty, unpaid or low waged employees, and the greed simply continues as his golf courses are seeing more than just pars and clubs. This is the story of greed, power, corruption, control, authoritarianism, fascism, and dictatorship that has resulted in a family that is as dark and disturbing as they come but operate with a smile and a grin when in public. Having divorced similar I can only note what I experienced and witnessed and saying that bankruptcy is a good way to operate a business is not my thing. Having failed at nearly everything he's had his hands on or involved with is his motto and nothing will get better till we get out of the smoke, fog, and mirrors. So buckle up as the king of swing is coming to you come November.... PLEASE VOTE!!! As for this book it was a good cross reference to show just how much he's gained both before and after office. The wheelings and dealings continue and are not limited to just DT but his own kids and extended family. It's not hard to imagine that those who enable him do so for many reasons including but not limited to fear of retaliation but also as a source of benefit for the ONE. They are all getting serviced or else they wouldn't be so loyal...Remember that loyalty doesn't pay as they will soon be devalued and discarded when they no longer serve a purpose. Thank you to Dan, the pub, NetGalley, and Amazon Kindle for this ARC in exchange for this honest review.

This Tuesday Dan Alexander’s new book, “White House, Inc: How Donald Trump Turned the Presidency Into a Business”, is published. It is a well-researched and written book about how Trump operated his family business before he was president and how he’s turned his presidential term into a money grab. Alexander’s book is an expose of Trump’s financial dealings. It’s a bit dry, but otherwise Trump is hung out to dry by bankers, business partners, and family. Alexander’s research is extensive and is an enjoyable read.

    The worst of this is mostly things I already knew from following the news and the rest is not that exciting.

    This book explains in detail the enormous grift going on by the president and the administration. Not only have these officials earned millions while serving the public through private deals, these deals often come from conflicts of interest in domestic and often foreign groups. The president donates the salary coming from citizens while getting millions from Qatar in real-estate. It's deeply troubling, and provides additional context to some unusual administration actions. Not only is this restr This book explains in detail the enormous grift going on by the president and the administration. Not only have these officials earned millions while serving the public through private deals, these deals often come from conflicts of interest in domestic and often foreign groups. The president donates the salary coming from citizens while getting millions from Qatar in real-estate. It's deeply troubling, and provides additional context to some unusual administration actions. Not only is this restricted to the president, but the cabinet as well. Several have resigned due to ethical dilemmas and others are still under investigation. I expect more indictments will arrive in the coming years. While they could've, should've, divested their investments, they've instead lied and brushed off legitimate concern and criticism. This book's findings should concern any citizen who cares about their country.

    Solid research and reporting about Trump’s conflicts of interest and how he permitted himself to be compromised by foreign governments. We’ll never know the full extent, but the expose is alarming, albeit not surprising. What is surprising is how some of his ventures are barely getting by or losing money. Take his Washington hotel where it’s popularly assumed he’s raking in money. But the truth is far less sanguine, even before coronavirus, and only precipitously worsened afterwards.

Take his Washington hotel where it’s popularly assumed he’s raking in money. But the truth is far less sanguine, even before coronavirus, and only precipitously worsened afterwards. Despite maybe his belief that he’d get rich by becoming President, he’s become a lot less wealthy and only subjected himself to legal liabilities. Was it all worth it? Perhaps only for his ego.

    This book is a meticulous pouring over of Donald Trump and his money... from prior to the election thru now.. it is quite the eye opener. Although it seems that he will not be prosecuted for what is in this book because of the difficulty of proving intent in much of the monetary dealing, it certainly appears to be be ethically questionable at the least. If you enjoy reading a lot of money trailing , this book is it

    Enlightening review of the Trump business empire and how the President by refusing to give up his fortune essentially immediately violated the emoluments clause on the Constitution. However, it contradicts itself by concluding there's almost no possible way to keep track of whether this is being done intentionally or not. And I guess that's the point.

    Concise overview on the Trump crime family and those in their orbit and their financial misdealing. Was struggling to try to discover much new here and seems to be consolidating some widely reported info on this brood from other books and news sources.

    Whilst not as detailed as it could’ve been, White House, Inc is well worth the read. Detailing Trumps current and historic holdings, dodgy dealings and loan arrangements, Alexander highlights a lot of red flags raised around Trump, his family and associates.

    Interesting. Not sure if all the content is accurate though.
