內容簡介


紐約時報暢銷冠軍,由追蹤川普30年的調查記者強斯頓深入核心探討川普政權的成與敗
看似正在重整美國政府的川普團隊,實際上卻讓美國未來蒙上灰暗陰影

追蹤川普超過30年的調查記者強斯頓揭露政治白蟻出沒於川普政權,一步步摧毀美國人民的工作、治安、財政等。沒有任何一位記者比強斯頓更了解川普,這本作品他將深入川普政權核心,揭發他如何破壞攸關美國人生活的聯邦機構:

美墨邊界高牆:墨西哥總統拒絕支付任何一毛錢建立高牆,所以川普就從提高墨西哥出口品關稅,但課稅只會讓在美國的墨西哥產品價格水漲船高,意味著建築高牆的費用皆由人民支付。

氣候變遷:全新的美國環保署由畢生試圖摧毀這個機構的律師史考特‧普魯特擔任署長。普魯特多次秘會企業高層,討論將哪些淨化空氣和水的法案撤銷,並將員工蒙在鼓裡。

放養沼澤:與川普當選期的排乾(華府)沼澤政見相反,川普反而徵招百萬及億萬富翁做為他的內閣,例如財政部長為長期任職高盛集團及對沖基金的馬紐金,由繼承億萬遺產的德沃斯擔任教育部長。

竊盜統治:利益衝突在川普政權下早已成為過去式,當川普不在華府時,就住在他名下的豪宅裡,而這些花費皆由納稅人為他的員工及特務買單。回到華府後,若要與川普政府合作,就必須先入住川普國際飯店。同時川普的兒子小唐納‧川普和艾瑞克‧川普以保密信託管理川普的財產,看似迴避利益衝突,但事實並非如此。

The Trump administration is remaking the government. It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America tells readers exactly how it is making America worse again.

Bestselling author and longtime Trump observer David Cay Johnston shines a light on the political termites who have infested our government under the Trump Administration, destroying it from within and compromising our jobs, safety, finances, and more.

No journalist knows Donald Trump better than David Cay Johnston, who has been following him since 1988. It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration Is Doing to America goes inside the administration to show how the federal agencies that touch the lives of all Americans are being undermined. Here is just some of what you will learn:

The Wall. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto told President Trump that Mexico will never pay for the border wall. So, Trump is proposing putting a tariff on Mexican imports. But a tariff will simply raise the price of Mexican goods in the US, meaning American consumers will end up paying for the wall—if it ever gets built.

Climate Change. Welcome to the new EPA, run by Scott Pruitt, a lawyer who has spent much of his career trying to destroy the agency he now heads. Secrecy reigns at the new EPA because Pruitt meets with industry executives to find out which clean air and clean water provisions they most want to roll back, and keeps staffers in the dark to make sure these pro-pollution plans don’t leak prematurely.

Stocking the Swamp. Contrary to his promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington, DC, Trump has filled his cabinet with millionaires and billionaires, from Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, a Goldman Sachs and hedge fund veteran who made much of his fortune foreclosing on homeowners to billionaire heiress Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who has already put the interests of bankers ahead of debt-burdened students and their families.

The Kleptocracy. Under Donald Trump conflict of interest is passé. When Trump isn’t in Washington, he stays at one of his properties, where the taxpayers pick up the tab for staffers, Secret Service, and so on, all at full price. And back in Washington, everyone now knows that the Trump International Hotel is the only place to stay if you want to do business with the administration. Meanwhile sons Donald Jr. and Eric run an eyes-wide-open blind trust of Trump holdings to avoid the appearance of conflict of interest—but not the reality.
