"The Cult of Trump" is an effective, thorough discussion of how Trump uses cult-like mind-control techniques to manipulate and maintain his unwavering support base. If you have ever wondered how Trump, with his highly documented failures, lies, anti-social behavior, became the darling of right wing politics, Hassan breaks it down in this book. He delves into Trump's early influence of Norman Vincent Peale's "positive thinking", prosperity Christianity, to Trump's symbiotic relationship with Fox News. The combination of such odd bedfellows as the NRA, Christian fundamentalists, Russia and the Catholic Church, who form the basis of Trump's peculiar appeal makes for fascinating, but occasionally frightening reading.
