General Keith Kellogg saw it all. The only national security advisor to work side by side with both President Trump and Vice President Pence, he was their confidant as they made their most momentous decisions. No one knows better than he that the hysterical accusations of the administration’s partisan detractors were unconnected to reality.

Demolishing baseless caricatures of Donald Trump, General Kellogg provides one of the few reliable accounts of the administration from the earliest days of the 2016 campaign to the end of the president’s term.

Kellogg reveals:
  • How Trump’s “America First” policies strengthened the nation after Obama’s eight-year apology tour
  • Why the president’s tough approach to China worked—and why future administrations must continue to take the China threat seriously
  • How withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and the strike on General Soleimani slowed the spread of radical Islamist terror
  • Why Democrats’ appeasement policies are courting disaster for America and the world

The radicals attacking President Trump’s legacy are sacrificing sound policy to politics. Kellogg’s account is an urgently needed reminder that politics is “war by other means.” Our enemies never forget that, and Americans forget it to their peril.
