A Presidency under PRESSure: Trump’s first 100 days

A Presidency under Pressure
A Presidency under Pressure

The election of Donald Trump to the Presidency of the United States was unprecidented. The media and the polls predicted a comfortable win for Hillary Clinton while many celebrated the first woman president; until the returns came in and she wasn’t. What followed was a very public struggle between the humiliated media and the belleagured president-elect for whom, while he was a relative newcommer, it can be rightly said it was not his first rodeo. Through claims of Russian hacking, racism and protests and in return, cries of bias, negativity and “fake news”, the two were locked in a stand-off of mutual disrespect.
Now, with the first 100 days behind us, author and historian Jake Eberlein takes on the task of documenting the protests, tweets, deals and squeals through the eyes of the media and White House press conferences to document just how the media covered the new president and how the latter struggled to control his public image and be faithful to campagin promises.

Jake Eberlein possesses a master’s degree in history from the Uinversity of Nebraska. He currently resides in Idaho with his wife and children.

Mediatrix Press is pleased to announce its first book on contemporary history and Geo-politics.

The Middle East, always a cauldron of political instability and religious strife, in recent years has become ever more dangerous. The problems are numerous and varied, including a widening Sunni-Shia religious divide, the rise of the terrorist group ISIS which threatens the region while transporting its message of hatred into Europe and beyond, the ascendancy of Iran as a regional force, Russian military intervention in Syria and the loosening of US ties to former allies Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia.

In the Middle East, these events have created an age of hatred. These factors also are transforming the Middle East into a hydra-headed threat to US and Western interests, posing a series of policy challenges that have yet to be fully articulated. In this landmark book, Caravelli and Foresi take a comprehensive, unvarnished and objective look at the political, military and cultural factors that are creating the new Middle East. Their insights will help shape the debate as America prepares for a new president while others in the West seek ways to enhance their own security.
