Faking the News: What Rhetoric Can Teach Us About Donald J. Trump (Societas Press)

Ed. Ryan Skinnell

Donald J. Trump’s speaking and tweeting invite passionate reactions—maybe he’s a blue-collar billionaire hero, or maybe he’s an illiterate,
unqualified idiot. Whatever you think, there’s no question that he was highly rhetorical. This book is about what made him so persuasive and why
it’s important to understand.
