Author says Trump lies all the time, but still a great president: ‘Powerhouse Politics’

The author of a new book about the Trump White House believes President Donald Trump will go down in history as one of the nation’s greatest presidents – even though he says Trump lies regularly “as part of his shtick.”

“He knows he’s making up stories, but he thinks it’s all a game,” Ronald Kessler, the author of “The Trump White House: Changing the Rules of the Game,” told “Powerhouse Politics” podcast hosts Rick Klein and Jonathan Karl.

“It’s part of his shtick, and we’re going to be stuck with it,” continued Kessler.

“The Trump White House: Changing The Rules of the Game” by Ronald Kessler, 2018.

But while Kessler said he wishes his longtime friend – who he says cooperated with the book – would hew more closely to the truth, he doubts it will hinder Trump’s achievements.
