A 19-year-old review of Donald Trump’s second book predicts his entire presidency

President Donald Trump’s most famous book is 1987’s “The Art of the Deal” — but his second book, written three years later, might be even more revealing. An old 1990 New York Times review of Trump’s book “Surviving at the Top” highlights several aspects of Trump’s personality that have manifested themselves repeatedly throughout his tenure at the White House, such as his angry attacks on media critics and his serial deception to make himself seem more powerful than he really is.
