From the Inside Flap
2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald J. Trump has a plan to make America great again. President Obama has been a disaster for this country. He's wrecked our economy, opened our borders to violent criminals, saddled our children with debt, and gone around the world apologizing for Americaas if the greatest nation in the world needed to apologize for being the land of opportunity and freedom that we were before Obama became president. Now, America looks like a broken countrystripped of jobs, stripped of wealth, stripped of respect. And what does President Obama do about it? He plays nice with the very same foreign governments who are eager to watch America burn. This can't go on. And if Donald J. Trump has anything to say about it, it won't. In his New York Times bestselling book, Time to Get Tough, Trump has the answers America has been looking for, including: How to finally secure our border and fix our immigration overflow How to create American jobs by forcing Communist China into truly fair trade How to retire our debt without endangering long-established programslike Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaidthat millions of Americans depend on How to undo the fraud of Obamanomics and the disaster of Obamacare Blunt, smart, and thoroughly captivating, Time to Get Tough is trademark Trump, setting out a common sense agenda to restore American prosperity and make our nation the world's leader once again.
From the Back Cover
I love America. I’m saddened by what I see happening to our country. We’re being humiliated, pushed around, disrespected, and badly abused. Obama was a leftist experiment that has failed and gone horribly wrong, and everyone knows it. Even friends of mine who voted for the guy privately admit that he’s been a huge disappointment. We cannot afford four more years of this mess. Our children’s futures are on the lineand we have to come through for them. We have to get tough so that our country can be great again.”

This new little stunt where liberal groups send out an email blast commanding their minions to go bomb Amazon ratings with 1-star reviews is as immature as it is revealing about the follower mentality of modern liberalism.
So here's a review from someone who actually READ the book. In fact, I will include page references to prove as much.
"Time to Get Tough" by Donald Trump is, without question, Trump's best and most impressive book to date. The writing leaps off the page and is the most serious, thoughtful book Trump has yet published. The writing is bold, clear, and surprisingly packed with details on specific policies and how we can save America from the mess Obama has made of the country.
One of the most impressive features of the book is the 15 pages of endnotes it contains. Again, because I actually READ the book (unlike the little liberal 1-star brigade), I will give you the exact amount of endnotes, which is a jaw dropping 243 sources found on pages 193-207.
Those who see Trump on TV will be impressed with the depth of detail and policy recommendations he makes in this book. He comes across as a serious, thoughtful man who loves America. In fact, had he published "Time to Get Tough" sooner, it's likely his run for the White House would have produced major momentum.
The most powerful chapters are chapter 2 "Take the Oil," chapter 5 "A Government We Can Afford," and chapter 7 "A Safety Net, Not a Hammock" (great chapter title).
On page 12, in chapter 2 "Take the Oil," Trump advocates a cost-sharing plan that our own Government Accountability Office (GAO) says would be a wise way to have Iraq share the costs of liberation.Read more ›
Despite Trump's own self-promoting ego and business shortcomings, he has worked hard to make himself a household name across america, Unfortunately, many great business leaders that our country has seen have gone bankrupt. Does anyone remember Walt Disney and his numerous bankruptcies during the two decades prior to opening Disneyland? Anyway, even the most well known Presidents and business leaders didn't always have great financial success during their careers before they became famous.
Trump is no different.
With this book Trump highlights just about everything that most intelligent thinking voters have been shouting in their heads for years! If we don't get some serious leadership at the top, we might as well kiss the country goodbye. Leadership is about making smart business choices and being smart about how to fight wars and win them. Without that attitude, America would've never become the nation it has or Hitler or Stalin would've succeeded.
Trump in this book offers a real alternative, that pulls no punches. His views step on people's ego's and puts liberals in their place. The fact is on the issues, nobody can prove that Trump is wrong in a one on one debate, much like JFK. With Gasoline Prices and Federal Trade Imbalances, along with exploding National Debt, Trump offers real solutions that frankly will upset people, but unless we start talking about the truth that makes us all angry we're never gonna have the standard of living our parents and grandparents had.
Save us Mr. Trump!
I read this book, to get a feel for the individual, and where he is coming from, since he is hoping to run for President 2016 on the Republican ticket. I wanted to see why he felt he was qualified to be our next President in 2016. A politician – he isn’t.
But well-educated, with a long-and-strong suit at dealing with, and understanding finance in a variety of global countries – he is. He defines himself as a person with a broad experience base in global finance, who has also had to deal with global politics AND foreign policy – in order to accomplish his goals. And with billions in personal net worth – maybe we should start believing what he says.
He is like no other in Washington, in that he needs the job of President, like a hole in the head – but he is fed up, with what Washington politicians have made of America. And he wants a chance to fix the problem.
Where other politicians go to Washington to get rich, line their pockets with side deals, and gain power – Trump already has all that. So what is his pitch in the book?
He wants the America back, that we all knew and loved, and lost, courtesy of the political element that has invaded Washington – and in some cases, made a permanent home there, peddling their ideas, and making their fortune altering American foreign and domestic policy, at the taxpayer’s expense.
D.T. states what he would do to get that America back. He explains foreign policies that have been poorly handled, and tells how he would have handled the situation.Read more ›
