If we asked a million different people that question, we'd probably get a million different answers, most either poisoned by the mainstream media's endless hate for him or tainted by his some of his own supporters evelating him to 'near-sainthood'. But if we take a deep look at some of the books that President Trump reads, we'll get a more accurate picture of America's 45th President than we'll ever get from the mainstream media.
Following what we considered the absolutely brilliantly timed 'removal' of Attorney General Jeff Sessions from office stealing any wind from beneath the sails of the Democrats following their 'blue puddle' and taking the mid-terms off of the front page in one full swoop, I turned to Susan Duclos and said "President Trump is a 'political master' and probably has read the legendary book 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu".
Sure enough, a visit back through time to take a look at POTUS Trump's tweets when he was merely 'businessman' Donald Trump finds that he has tweeted wisdom from the legendary book "The Art Of War", a book that has been read by all of the greatest military minds throughout history, many times as seen in the screenshots of some of his tweets we've embedded throughout this story.
And then we found this story over at Favobook which was written well before the 2016 election, back when Barack Obama was still in office. And as we see in our look below at the list of all of POTUS Trump's favorite books, there is absolutely a method to POTUS's perceived madness.
The first book on POTUS's must read book list was Edward Klein's "The Amateur", a scathing critique of Barack Obama in the White House and a book that Donald Trump described as such:
"The Amateur is the best book I've read on how Barack Obama is wrecking our country. I urge everyone who cares about America to read Klein's eye-opening book."
Sun Tzu's ancient work began on book lists as a necessity of military strategy, and has become a necessary addition to business book lists as well. The US Marine Corp and intelligence units still recommend this work on their book lists. It emphasizes excellence, the strategic use of deception, and the psychological nature of winning a war before battle begins. Those wanting a leadership book won't be disappointed by Tzu's insights into the “wise general”, and those wanting a treatise on business tactics can also make great use of tips on strategy, and appearing to be what you're not.
In fact, when we take a look at some of President Trump's tweets of wisdom taken from Sun Tzu's book, we can also see some of his policies laid out before us such as the next one below which tackles not only immigration and our open borders but the United States policies of 'empire' over the past many decades.
What is so difficult to understand about "He who defends everywhere, defends nowhere"? President Trump clearly saw all the way back in 2013 that we can't continue to defend America and our borders as long as we're trying to 'defend the world', what Sun Tzu wrote about originally in the 5th Century B.C.
And in POTUS's next tweet below from September 11th of 2012 he wrecked the theories held by warmongers in America that endless wars somehow benefit our nation, sharing the absolutely brilliant wisdom in Sun Tzu's statement "There is no instance of a nation benefitting from prolonged warfare."
And while needless bloodshed continues in Yemen and elsewhere around the world, at least President Trump has put what looks to be a permanent end to the North Korea threat. And judging by the fact that we still haven't gotten into a war with Russia or China, POTUS must also be winning over the warmongers in his state department who have ludicrously have been pushing for a war with a nation that can destroy us.
While the third, fourth, fifth and sixth books on POTUS's must read book list are all books about business and are linked below, the seventh and eighth books detailed below these business books give us a much deeper look into not only the mind of President Trump but also the direction that he saw America going:
Not surprisingly, the seventh must read book on POTUS's reading list is "The Prince" by Niccolo Machiavelli, a book that POTUS recommends we read in his book "Trump 101: The Way To Success" and a book which has also been described as a must-read.
Called everything from “ruthless” to “masterpiece” over its checkered publishing career, civil servant Machiavelli's posthumous work can be bundled on a reading list with the Art of War for true insight on how to build power and decimate enemies. (Perhaps this is also why Donald Trump has added “The Prince” to his reading list of books leading to success.) Though the advice was meant for the Medici ruling family in Italy, the principles can still hold true, or at least shed a light on how to weave through the murky waters of politics.
POTUS Trump writes of "The Watchman's Rattle": "Rebecca Costa was written a riveting examination of our world's most dire and complex issues. Her message for mankind is an ultimately hopeful one as she explores her fascinating theory about the brain's ability to develop advanced problem solving techniques in times of crisis. A must read!"
And while the mainstream media and leftist politicians attempt to paint President Trump as an uncaring dolt with the brain of a child, to know that President Trump cares about the issues facing our world so much that he recommends a book that warns we're heading towards extinction tells us much more about POTUS and his understanding of the issues that our world faces in a much more concrete way than just 'global warming'.
The mainstream media should be absolutely ashamed of the way they continue to portray President Trump.
And with Costa's book also stressing using our own human brains and ingenuity to solve the problems that we face as human beings, we're not the least bit surprised that POTUS has been reaching out to people way outside of the realm of traditional political insiders and think tanks such as inviting inner city Pastors to the White House to discuss overcoming poverty and homelessness while thanking Evangelical Christian leaders for the work that they do within their communities.
And we can all offer new ideas to solve the problems that we face as Americans and 'global citizens', which we all are as 'residents of our planet Earth' whether or not we're also 'nationalists'. In fact, putting America first is one of the best things that we can do for freedom on planet Earth as America has long been the great beacon of liberty, the strongest free nation standing, and the one nation that totalitarians would love to get rid of.
So we hope that a look at the books which President Trump has read and recommends that others read gives ANP readers a closer look at the mind and person of President Trump, a man who truly rose to the presidency quite literally out of nowhere, at a point in time when the entire mainstream media apparatus had joined the 'deep state' and Democratic party as well as all of Hollywood aligned against him.
And while we'll never elevate POTUS Trump in our minds to 'sainthood', as we had reported on ANP back on November 4th, according to Evangelist Hal Lindsey, President Trump is definitely 'God's Man' to fix the damage that has been done by the globalists to America and with America approaching the 2020 election only 2 years away, we'd have to argue that President Trump is not only 'God's Man' to lead America out of this mess but the ONLY person who CAN lead America out of the mess we're now in short of the Return of Jesus.
And while some still complain that Trump is another globalist and he's still putting the world ahead of America, as we hear in the must listen video below from Trump himself during a pre-election speech back in Florida in 2016, he completely understands the stakes that America is up against. An extended excerpt from that speech which we consider one of the best political speeches of all time.
Our movement is about replacing a failed and corrupt — now, when I say "corrupt," I'm talking about totally corrupt — political establishment, with a new government controlled by you, the American people.
There is nothing the political establishment will not do — no lie that they won't tell, to hold their prestige and power at your expense. And that's what's been happening.
The Washington establishment and the financial and media corporations that fund it exist for only one reason: to protect and enrich itself.
For those who control the levers of power in Washington, and for the global special interests, they partner with these people that don't have your good in mind. Our campaign represents a true existential threat like they haven't seen before.
This is not simply another four-year election. This is a crossroads in the history of our civilization that will determine whether or not we the people reclaim control over our government.
The political establishment that is trying to stop us is the same group responsible for our disastrous trade deals, massive illegal immigration and economic and foreign policies that have bled our country dry.
The Clinton machine is at the center of this power structure. We've seen this first hand in the WikiLeaks documents, in which Hillary Clinton meets in secret with international banks to plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty in order to enrich these global financial powers, her special interest friends and her donors.
So true. Honestly, she should be locked up. Should be locked up.
And likewise the e-mails show that the Clinton machine is so closely and irrevocably tied to the media organizations that she, that she — listen to this — is given the questions and answers in advance of her debate performance with Bernie Sanders.
The most powerful weapon deployed by the Clintons is the corporate media, the press.
Let's be clear on one thing, the corporate media in our country is no longer involved in journalism. They're a political special interest no different than any lobbyist or other financial entity with a total political agenda, and the agenda is not for you, it's for themselves.
And their agenda is to elect crooked Hillary Clinton at any cost, at any price, no matter how many lives they destroy.
For them it's a war, and for them nothing at all is out of bounds. This is a struggle for the survival of our nation, believe me. And this will be our last chance to save it on Nov. 8, remember that.
This election will determine whether we are a free nation or whether we have only the illusion of democracy, but are in fact controlled by a small handful of global special interests rigging the system, and our system is rigged. This is reality, you know it, they know it, I know it, and pretty much the whole world knows it. The establishment and their media enablers will control over this nation through means that are very well known. Anyone who challenges their control is deemed a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed.
They will attack you, they will slander you, they will seek to destroy your career and your family, they will seek to destroy everything about you, including your reputation. They will lie, lie, lie, and then again they will do worse than that, they will do whatever is necessary. The Clintons are criminals, remember that. They're criminals.
This is well documented, and the establishment that protects them has engaged in a massive cover-up of widespread criminal activity at the State Department and the Clinton Foundation in order to keep the Clintons in power.
