Donald J. Trump is the 45th president of the United States. This happened in 2016 and it is not a hallucination. Trump’s political ascendancy, cabinet-level federal appointments, and subtle endorsement of white nationalism, have expedited feelings of fear, loathing, and endless uncertainty among many Americans – in particular, the poor and working-class.
Not Our President: New Directions from the Pushed Out, the Others, and the Clear Majority in Trump’s Stolen America is a call-to-action for critical thinking and action, and progressive movement-building among everyday people – the vast majority of whom stand outside of Trump’s vision for America. This important volume addresses diverse areas including economics, education, culture, media, labor, religion, and politics.
