The Truth About Trump supplies the answer.

Along the way, D'Antonio charts the successes and failures, scandals and triumphs, and relentless pursuit of money and fame that have made Trump who he is today.

I look forward to reading this book. I have always considered Trump to be nothing more than a sleazy business guy, but compared to the others in this presidential campaign he really begins to look like the lesser of evils, and he certainly sounds light years more pro-worker than the couple who killed the New Deal, increasing drug dealing in lower income neighborhoods, and jail record numbers of American, the Clintons!
[Just as that rightwing party in the UK led the exit from the EU, something which any real leftwinger should have been doing, Trump most strangely ends up sounding far more progressive than those claiming to be liberal and progressive? If Trump manages to win the presidency, I sincerely believe it will because it was a protest vote against rampant criminality and corruption so extant today on the American political scene and government.]
