Major Garrett has been reporting on the White House for nearly two decades covering four different presidencies for three news outlets But if he thought that his distinguished journalistic career had prepared him for the niue challenges of covering Donald Trump he was in for a surpriseLike many others in Washington Garrett found himself having to nlearn many of his own settled notions about the nature and function of the presidency He also had to separate the carnival like noise of the Correspondent The book works best as an account of the day to day decision making from an insider s perspe I trained to be a journalist but my timing was nfortunate because investigative journalism began to replace the who what when where why how journalistic style to which I was commited Respecting others privacy faded as the realm of aggressive getting the best story first journalism began began to appear I have continued over the years to read and follow contemporary journalists who have attempted to emphasize through in depth research and who
tend to emphasize studied and thoughtful reporting that can accommodate the whysto emphasize studied and thoughtful reporting that can accommodate the whys hows Major Garrett is such a person I feel that he doesn t go so much for the sensational stories as he can deal with the hows and whys of issues and events In his book he mentions several times how he wished he could have Bitva na Hackhamské pláni (Hraničářův učeň: První roky, understood Mr Trump better and earlier I too have felt this way so o Major Garrett a well known name in mainstream media circles and the White House Correspondent for CBS News attempts to make sense of the nonsense that is the Trump Administration in his latest book Mr Trump s Wild Ride The Thrills Chills Screams and Occasional Blackouts of an Extraordinary Presidency He starts off by asking the simpleestion Does Donald Trump Matter The answer is anything but simple of course It is a Kent Hrbeks Tales from the Minnesota Twins Dugout ualified yes in which Garrett points out the many accomplishments that Trump has made which will have long lasting effects and conseuences for future presidents and fellow Americans for decadesGarrett s book is essentially a list of several things that Trump has succeeded in doing in his first two years that for than half the country look like a morass ofnconstitutional racist sexist pro business policies which they are but to Trump supporters are proof that Trump is merely doing what he said he d do by fulfilling his campaign promises one at a timeGarrett breaks down the topics extremely well picking apart the fact from the fiction as only a seasoned professional journalist can The result is immensely readable and informative if a bit dry at times What he does extremely well though is making valid points about the topic that were either missed by the general public at the time or have only now come to light points that certainly give one pause On Trump s travel ban The travel ban Trump signed was the least restrictive of the eight offered for review The other seven had countries and restrictions p 111 On Immigration in general What is immigration policy s goal Is it to serve employment needs in border states and for the agricultural industry Is it to serve some Goodbye My Fancy universal cultural norm Is it to serve America s national security and nothing else Trump asked the lastestion and he asked it without hesitation or guilt p 113 Later Garrett submits this interesting statistic The United States has admitted than 3 million refugees since 1975 and only 20 have been convicted of a terror crime The exact number of people killed by refugees from 1975 to 2015 is three p 122 On Saudi Arabia and the Middle East Trump gave a speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Riyadh Saudi Arabia on May 21 2017 which emphasized a challenge to Middle Eastern countries like Saudi Arabia to drive out the terrorists and extremists Indeed the phrase Drive them out #became the catch phrase and rallying cry of Trump s foreign policy #the catch phrase and rallying cry of Trump s foreign policy regards to terrorists Here s the entire speechAs Garrett writes For the Muslim and Arab majority nations in attendance Trump offered a stark.
