Since Donald Trump’s presidential campaign of 2016, many of his aides and insiders have taken up writing books to share their experiences in what has been a tumultuous, and one that will no-doubt go down in history as one of the most dramatic and controversial political eras of all time.
The latest Trump administration insider to join this growing list of authors is Cassidy Hutchinson, a recently published author who has written the book ‘What Really Matters’. In her book, Cassidy refrains from indulging in political arguments akin to those backed by the former President’s anti-establishment camp. Rather, she dives deep into the administration’s inner workings and the flare of emotions that accompanied each decision. Outlining how she struggled to balance her personal views and political ideologies with her commitment to the overall cause, Cassidy paints an exacting and often touching picture of her inner journey serving Trump and those around him.
Using a combination of heart-warming anecdotes, practical takeaways, and emotional recollections, Cassidy’s books offers readers an unfiltered perspective of life within the administration – and it is this kind of honesty and forthrightness which has made the book so successful among those interested in the legacy of the 45th President.
Combined with books written by other Trump administration insiders, Cassidy’s book serves to cement the legacy of this political era. While there are many critics of the former President who are unwilling to engage with such stories, there is no denying the value of these books for those looking to understand the dynamics of the past four years. As such, this book may well catalyse conversation and debate over the polarising issues of the Trump era for years to come.
In a world where both sides refuse to back down, it’s reassuring to see that there are still honest accounts from inside the Trump administration which can hopefully foster a more understanding society – and Cassidy Hutchinson’s book can certainly aspire to that goal.
