Master Dealmaker?

Donald Trump holds himself forth as a genius when it comes to making deals. (“I alone can do this.”) One of his claims to fame is co-authoring the book The Art of the Deal which, of course, he is the star of. In reality he is a lousy dealmaker. Let’s explore. Continue reading Master Dealmaker?

My President Is Very Bad At His Job
