Summary Washington Correspondent Caitríona Perry has earned a reputation as a reliable source of truth. She goes beyond the news reports and delves into the American heartland where she witnessed the rise of Trump first hand. Bringing to the table the voices of those who voted for Trump, Hillary Clinton's so-called 'basket of deplorables', the ones whose opinions didn't coalesce with acceptable mainstream discourse, Perry reveals just what is really happening in America right now. You know why people didn't vote for Donald Trump, now find out why some people did. Perry is an award-winning Irish journalist. One of the first journalists to suggest that Trump could actually win, Caitríona Perry's account of America right now is the definitive one.
