Revolution: Trump, Washington and “We the People” by K.T. McFarland

April 1, 2020

On April 24, we expected to host K.T. McFarland at our Conservative Women’s Network luncheon co-hosted by the Heritage Foundation. However, due to COVID-19, the event was postponed. Nevertheless, we would like to share with you the topic of the event: K.T.’s newest book, “Revolution: Trump, Washington and ‘We The People.'” K.T. McFarland has spoken at several of our regional summits and campus lectures, and she’s a dear friend to us. In 2015, we awarded her our Woman of the Year award! We hope you enjoy her book as much as we did.

About the book…

Wall Street Journal bestseller.

When Trump’s first Deputy National Security Advisor left Washington, she disappeared from sight. Now former government official and political commentator KT McFarland returns with tenacity, resolve, and the truth about the Trump Administration and those seeking to destroy it.

For decades, KT McFarland has been one of the country’s most prominent conservative foreign policy experts. She was part of the Trump Revolution from the beginning. As Trump’s first Deputy National Security Advisor, she had a seat at the table for everything: Trump’s unconventional campaign and upset victory; his throw-out-the-rule-book Trump Tower Transition; the chaotic first months in the West Wing; the unusual events surrounding General Flynn’s firing; and the sprawling Mueller investigation. 

In Revolution, she walks the reader through the Washington Establishment’s relentless efforts to destroy Trump, populism, and nationalism in order to keep their own hands on the levers of power. The Trump Revolution, like the Reagan Revolution and all the anti-Establishment political revolutions before it, will ultimately prevail. It is this ability to reinvent ourselves, not just as individuals but as a society, that lies at the heart of American Exceptionalism.

When McFarland left the Trump Administration and Washington, she disappeared from public view and refused to discuss her experiences. Now, for the first time, McFarland tells a story that reads more like a political thriller than a tour through this unique moment in history. Written with unusual candor, with insights into Trump and his inner circle, Putin, Xi Jinping, and Kim Jong-un, McFarland’s book is destined to become a classic.

If you only read one book about the Age of Trump, make it Revolution: Trump, Washington and “We the People.”

Discussion Questions

How does K.T. McFarland’s newest book compare to other accounts of the Trump presidency?

K.T. McFarland describes details about her entrapment by the FBI as well as financial and reputational losses as a result of the Mueller investigation, which ultimately found her innocent of collusion. Now that the truth is out, do you feel changes will be made in the handling of similar future investigations of the FBI? If so, what?
