Never Enough: Donald Trump and the Pursuit of Success by Michael DAntonioIn the summer of 2015, as he vaulted to the lead among the many GOP candidates for president, Donald Trump was the only one dogged by questions about his true intentions. This most famous American businessman had played the role of provocateur so often that pundits, reporters, and voters struggled to believe that he was a serious contender. Trump stirred so much controversy that his candidacy puzzled anyone who applied ordinary political logic to the race. But as Michael DAntonio shows in Never Enough, Trump has rarely been ordinary in his pursuit of success and his trademark method is based on a logic that begins with his firm belief that he is a singular and superior human being.
As revealed in this landmark biography, Donald Trump is a man whose appetite for wealth, attention, power, and conquest is practically insatiable. Declaring that he is still the person he was as a rascally little boy, Trump confesses that he avoids reflecting on himself because I might not like what I see and he believes most people arent worthy of respect.
A product of the media age and the Me Generation that emerged in the 1970s, Trump was a Broadway showman before he became a developer. Mentored by the scoundrel attorney Roy Cohn, Trump was a regular on the New York club scene and won press attention as a dashing young mogul before he had built his first major project. He leveraged his fathers enormous fortune and political connections to get his business off the ground, and soon developed a larger-than-life persona. In time, and through many setbacks, he made himself into a living symbol of extravagance and achievement.
Drawing upon extensive and exclusive interviews with Trump and many of his family members, including all his adult children, DAntonio presents the full story of a truly American icon, from his beginnings as a businessman to his stormy romantic life and his pursuit of power in its many forms. For all those who wonder: Just who is Donald Trump?, Never Enough supplies the answer. He is a promoter, builder, performer and politician who pursues success with a drive that borders on obsession and yet, has given him, almost everything he ever wanted.
The Truth About Trump
He could have been Roy Cohn. For much of the previous month, Capitol Hill and the nation had been transfixed by the Army-McCarthy hearings, where military men battled with Joseph McCarthy, the notorious Red-baiting senator from Wisconsin, over the conduct of his belligerent chief aide, Cohn. Things had gone so badly for Roy Cohn that his political career would be ruined. The hearings were just as bad for the senator. One witness became a sensation as he famously asked of the senator, "Have you no decency, sir? Shunned by colleagues, McCarthy would soon die, at age forty-eight, of alcohol-related liver disease. The drama of the McCarthy hearings was still fresh on July 12, , when Fred Trump sat at a witness table to answer questions about graft and profiteering in a Federal Housing Administration building program.
Prior to the announcement of Donald Trump 's presidential campaign , he met with author Michael D'Antonio and writer Mark Dagostino. Trump told D'Antonio, during the initial meeting, that he was prepared to decline D'Antonio's request for several formal interviews. Trump told D'Antonio that he agreed to their meeting only because D'Antonio was being assisted by Dagostino, who was helping him with research for the book. Dagostino, whom Trump liked, had previously reported on Trump in People magazine. During the meeting, Trump agreed to do half a dozen interviews.
