American Values in the Trump Era
A Battle for the Soul of America
About the Book
Donald J. Trump was elected president after promising to “make America great again,” but what is it that makes America great?
The message implies that America was great at one time but is no longer great. One can assume that Trump wants to take us back to a time when white men were in charge, when businesses went unregulated, and when a woman’s place was in the home.
Jim Boeglin argues against those ideas in this political treatise, urging Americans to recognize that the true greatness of America comes not from its balance sheet but from having a democratic form of government, a history of moral leadership, and values and traditions based on ethics, morality, and spiritual principles.
America was great before Trump arrived on the scene, but it’s in danger of losing its greatness as he seeks to redefine freedom, equality, opportunity, truthfulness, civility, and more.
Just as the 1930s were not normal times in Germany, these are not normal times in America. Find out how we can hold on to what truly makes us great with the insights and analysis in American Values in the Trump Era.
