“2016: The Campaign Chronicles” is not a book about Donald Trump. It is about the hard-fought campaigns in the two political parties. It is about the process that culminated in Donald Trump's astounding victory.

Many books are written about presidential campaigns after the fact, but JD Foster thinks they often lack the flavor of the moment, the immediacy of events. Histories may also not recognize in hindsight a related current event that deeply influenced a candidate or the public's perceptions, he added. Foster believes that a chronicle of events as they happened provides an appreciation of how the events were perceived and how they influenced the candidates and the campaign. This belief led him in writing “2016: The Campaign Chronicles: The Journey to Trump” (published by Xlibris).

The 2016 presidential contest was the most fascinating, most bizarre campaign in memory. This book attempts to chronicle the campaign's events fairly so Americans today and historians tomorrow have a guide to understanding how a non-politician of apparently zero prospects became the 45th president of the United States.

“Polls consistently show Americans believe the country is on the wrong course. They have voted for change in presidential election after presidential election, yet they routinely and overwhelmingly re-elect their own Congressmen and Senators,” Foster says. “Understanding something of the 2016 election may help in understanding this inconsistency and thus may shed light on at least some of the nation's divisions. In many ways, some deeply disturbing, the 2016 election offers a mirror's reflection of the state of the nation, an image of where we are and thus perhaps a clue to where we are going on our current course.”

“2016: The Campaign Chronicles” is not a book about Donald Trump. It is about the hard-fought campaigns in the two political parties. It is about the process that culminated in Donald Trump's astounding victory.
