I recently read Fear by Bob Woodward on the early part of the Trump administration. Woodward is excellent at digging out information and presenting it clearly. His prose is bland but that’s fine – the book is about the subject, the writing. It’s news writing prose, not fiction.
There’s lots of scary stuff – Trump is sure he is right even when presented with facts that contradict his opinion. For example, he was insistent that Iran was in violation of the nuclear deal when they weren’t. It sounds like it’s impossible to get him to change long-held beliefs.
The administration comes across as very disorganized. I worked in the federal government (at much lower levels) for decades and we never had this kind of infighting and chaos.
