A while ago, updating his claim to be a genius, Trump invited us to admire his “magnificently brilliant” answers in a television interview; I’d rather trust his former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, who viewed him as “a fucking moron”.

Fountain’s book, derived from articles commissioned by the Guardian, broods about an ideal America that Trump has defiled and debased, perhaps irreparably.

Given his seasoned status, it is thus very worrying to see Woodward describe Trump ’s presidency as one of the most harrowing political investigations of his life. He draws upon hundreds of hours of interviews with key members of Trump ’s administration, taking first-hand meeting notes along the way.
