The Divider, a brand new book written by Peter Baker and Susan Glasser, is the inside story of the four years when Donald Trump went to war with Washington, from the chaotic beginning to the violent finale, told by revered journalists Peter Baker of The New York Times and Susan Glasser of The New Yorker—an ambitious and lasting history of the full Trump presidency that also contains dozens of exclusive scoops and stories from behind the scenes in the White House, from the absurd to the deadly serious.

The bestselling authors of The Man Who Ran Washington argue that Trump was not just lurching from one controversy to another; he was learning to be more like the foreign autocrats he admired.

“The most comprehensive and detailed account of the Trump presidency yet published.”—The Washington Post

The Divider brings us into the Oval Office for countless scenes both tense and comical, revealing how close we got to nuclear war with North Korea, which cabinet members had a resignation pact, whether Trump asked Japan’s prime minister to nominate him for a Nobel Prize and much more. The book also explores the moral choices confronting those around Trump—how they justified working for a man they considered unfit for office, and where they drew their lines.

The Divider is based on unprecedented access to key players, from President Trump himself to cabinet officers, military generals, close advisers, Trump family members, congressional leaders, foreign officials, and others, some of whom have never told their story until now.

  1. From my view as a German built in 1947 – Trump was a blessing for the world – as he demonstrated that REAL & HONEST change was possible.
    That revelation has stirred up exactly THAT old US- & IS-establishment, which lives off corruption, slavery, war, censorship & suppression – and people around the planet wake up slowly to that perfectly hidden agenda, which we call the “deep state” – and which took over the power, when the CIA killed your democrately elected president John F. Kennedy in 1963, a crime which America has utterly failed to uncover & clear up, to this day.
    So we all will end up together in world-war number THREE – as Israel’s NAZI’s (NAtional ZIonist) strongly believe in that PRE-Christ OLD & satanic Testament – where they teach “an eye for an eye” & other “bs” which leads directly into Armageddon, as it is the OPPOSITE of the correct teaching of JESUS from NAZARETH, that only forgiving your ennemy will ever end this vicious circle of FAKE wisdom, which is destroying America from within, and the rest of the western world through stupidity of our highly intelligent psychopath’s at the helm right now.

    • Lol, blessing is your heads deep in the sand.

      Killing Soleimani was a blessing, yeah ..

      Adelson didn’t get to bomb Tehran and I guess that’s a “blessing.”
      Saudis and Israelis were given a carte blanche to do whatever they want including starting WW3 with Iran, but hey that’s a blessing. Lol.

      Trump bombed Yemen more than all previous US presidents combined, but hey that’s a blessing …

      And the stuff in his safe that was taken back was all Iran’s files to be sold and blackmailed, but that’s a blessing ..

      Lol.

    • Yeah Light Of Lucifer to you too Newt🤣 Hey while we’re on the subject of the Illuminati and the Masons. Ya ever notice Soleimani’s ring? The same one worn by fellow Masons like the Pedowood and Andrenochrome junkies like Oprah Winfrey, Tom Hanks Hillary Clinton, Sheila Jackson-Lee and John Podesta to name a few. Funny how you lament his untimely “death” that is if he really did die. Still some questions there. See the Sgt Report. https://www.sgtreport.com/2020/01/the-mystery-of-soleimanis-red-ring-a-masonic-ring-also-worn-by-other-elites/ Maybe that’s too deep down the rabbit hole for you.

      But anyhoo you like to continually whine about Soleimani while ignoring Obama’s Kill List https://www.counterpunch.org/2012/05/31/the-kill-list-of-barack-obama/ Not exactly a font of right wing journalism then of course there’s Hillary’s Hit List https://21stcenturywire.com/2014/01/14/revealed-hillary-clintons-political-hit-list/ but I digress. The fact is though I did disagree with Trump at the time. He did take out a Military target. Unlike Obama who killed mostly civilians.

    • Funny guy, the ring that those terrorists have worn is a lot different from the one “General” Soleimani had, and the finger that “General” Soleimani has a ring on is different from the finger that those Satanic guys do! He wore that as an “islamic” sign.

      “General” Soleimani didn’t “die”, a terrorist regime, a terrorist President, a terrorist army, and a terrorist intelligence service “assassinated” him, and promise you all those terrorists will pay for their crime, it’s not too far!

      Vote for Trump again, killing a terrorist president has more prestige than killing a defeated candidate!!!

  2. September there was the FBI search at Mar a Lago. And Trump was given as good as dead.
    Cyclically this repeats itself.
    I asked those who said Trump was as good as done
    «Is it Better for you in order, Bush (old and young), Clinton, Obama, Killary and Biden?
    Devolution or evolution? Russia Gate or Pizzagate?»
    The illogical answer was “Obama played it perfectly; not even one scandal. He played chess well”. Obama was never involved in a scandal? and why didn’t he say as well the merits of all the others? Wanting to respond to him triggered censure. Only ten or fifteen days later did they become visible. But by then it was too late.
    I will preface the following is the response and that it does not necessarily cheer for Trump.
    Part.I

    • «Did you perhaps refute Russia gate and PizzaGate, or rigged elections, or that what Trump has done is not comparable to what others have before and after him (search VT and find everything).
      Obama was before Trump and he should have been succeeded by H. Clinton … this explains Russiagate.
      The fact is happening under the Biden presidency: is he not embroiled in scandals? He says he didn’t know anything? Have you heard about Iran – Contra and who was involved in it?
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iran%E2%80%93Contra_affair
      If you have confidence in those photographs the scenario is this. If the house is small and there is the owner it is more risk to frame the person with illegal evidence.
      If the house is Mar a Lago it is easier because the owner can be held in room No. 1 while someone else does the job in room No. 100.
      Then wouldn’t he open the safe? Only then, and if so, would there be what you write.
      Whoever did the work also did not have this entanglement because Trump while in New Jersey was a real fool to leave Top Secrets on Mar a Lago’s desk, or was he?
      Finally, who was cleaning Mar a Lago? His wife or not throngs of maids and none of them had any inkling of Top Secret documents? Why do I say that? Daniel Estulin, a true investigative journalist, wrote “The Bildberg Club” by taking information from waiters and bellboys, of what they saw and heard during their work.
      Did this happen in Mar a Lago?»

  3. Since Trump has been banned from Twitter the number of American people & channels on Telegram has skyrocketed…. while most of them are Trump supporters… and their key word is “Q”/WWG1WGA… the funny point is Trump supporters don’t just “support” Trump, but they “worship” him… they talk about 9/11, Covid, Vaccines, and … but totally forget about the Jews and the fact that most of those crimes were committed under “Republican” administrations (however Democrats are always accomplice), and funnier it gets when you see [most] of Trump supporters are also “PUT-IN” supporters!! Nothing adds up, the Nazis in Ukraine vote for a “Jew”, and the Evangelists & their ilk support PUT-IN… it says a lot!

    • It does add up. First most republicans are single issue voters. And then most republicans fear a less white, less Christian US. That by itself sums up their worshipping Trump and then the fact that the right in Israel Likud who rules is also a racist ethnocentric society (they push for Kumbaya all over the world except for their own) is making the mentally retarded inbred Trump worshiper be attracted to that shithole.

      And I don’t even have to explain Russia’s “ethnic democracy” to you.

      That’s just one single issue that brings them all together. They don’t even care to know the rest of the story.

    • Thanks for the comment, that’s so right… but let’s not forget that PUT-IN “himself” is a close friend of TRUMP and ISRAHELL…. when we see a European country has a close friendship with Israhell, we’ll immediately say, the leaders of this country are Zio puppets,,,,, but when it comes to Russia, we rather say “He’s keeping his enemy close”!!! (This is what many Russians/Put-in supporters have told me), shouldn’t we be a little more realistic? Things aren’t like what they seem…
      A Trump supporter who pretends to be a patriot, shouldn’t support Put-in basically because of their “ostensible” patriotism, but they do, cause their favorite candidate also has a close relationship with him… that’s why it doesn’t add up.
      Hamamon sare karim…

    • Putin is a practical businessman and his relations with Israel and his Russian Aliyah seekers (lol) is complicated. I say lol because the Russian zios have immigrated to Israel for simple reasons. One to get away from the cold winter and two to kill Palestinian children for a few lousy shekels of handouts. And then Putin stopped them from going down to Chechnya to get their fix of killing Muslims for fun. Plus the oligarchs who looted Russia are all in that shithole.

    • Not a regional war really, even when Saddam attacked Iran, it wasn’t regional, just remember how all over the world from east to west were supporting Saddam…
      This time America makes a mistake Iran won’t target a military base, it’ll drop its missiles right over Tel Aviv, and we all know that ISRAHELL is the godfather…

    • Your point doesn’t contradict mine, Newt, any kind of war with Iran would be a “world” war, not “regional”, since all countries of the world, even irrelevant ones, would have to take an action because their Zionist masters command them so… just like the sanctions, Europe has to make decisions against its economic benefit, only for the sake of its parasitic masters in Washington and Tel Aviv.

    • Okay but that’s another point. Iran is circled with “the world” and its strategy and reach has never included the geographic Europe per se. That’s because every colonial power is established in our region “West Asia” with their lifelines attached to it, oil and gas, and selling weapons to their stooges.

      Which makes it simple for Iran to flatten the “region” and get the cancer out.
      In other words the enemies of Iran are all in West Asia.

      And I know that you know that.
