It wasn’t enough for the left to cheat Donald Trump out of a second term in the Oval Office. He still poses such a threat to the Democrat Party that they are mobilized to prevent him from ever being allowed to seek political office again. But it won’t stop there. They want to erase Trump and his legacy from public memory entirely by any means possible: everything from banning him from social media, to denying him a Presidential library, to barring his name from federally funded monuments, street names, and park benches, to such petty measures as cutting his cameo appearance from Home Alone 2. If it were within their power – and it very nearly is – the Democrats would not hesitate to “vaporize” Trump (to use George Orwell’s term) and obliterate every trace of his existence from history. They would make him what Orwell called, in Nineteen Eighty-Four, an unperson.
Conservative commentator, speaker, and writer Nick Adams is determined to thwart this Democrat mission, single-handedly if necessary, and to cement the former President’s place as – in Adams’ view – the greatest in American history. Sometimes referred to as Trump’s favorite author (for having tweeted recommendations of some of his articles and books), Adams published a book last year titled Trump and Churchill, in which he expounded upon a list of ten points of similarity between the two leaders and argued that they were history’s greatest defenders of Western civilization (I reviewed that book for FrontPage Mag here).
In the same vein, Adams’ latest book, fresh off the press (Post Hill Press, to be precise), is Trump and Reagan: Defenders of America, in which he declares Trump to be “the second coming” of Ronald Reagan, only greater – a bold claim, considering the reverence in which conservatives generally hold our 40th President. But Adams argues respectfully, without diminishing Reagan’s achievements at all, that Trump accomplished more in one term than Reagan did in two. In any case, in the course of his new book, Adams illuminates the characteristics, political successes, and even the subversive enemies they faced that make these two Presidents more alike than first glance might suggest.
