Americans didn't just go to the polls in 2016. They joined a movement that swept the unlikeliest of candidates, Donald Trump, into the Oval Office. Can he complete his agenda? Or will his opponents block his efforts and choke off the movement he represents?
In Busting the Barricades, Laura Ingraham gives readers a front row seat to the populist revolution as she witnessed it. With sharp humour and insight she traces the DNA of the populist movement from Goldwater's 1964 campaign, to Nixon's Silent Majority, to Reagan's smashing electoral victories. Populism fueled the insurgency campaigns of Buchanan and Perot, the election of George W. Bush, and the Tea Party rallies of the Obama presidency. But a political novice - a Manhattan billionaire - proved to be the movement's most vocal champion. This is the inside story of his victory and the struggle to enact his agenda.
