It’s not very often, if ever, someone gets to interview someone about their new book that only months before shared a prestigious award with. I had that opportunity this week to do just that.
Anthony Scaramucci is much more than a self-made successful businessman, former White House Communications Director for 11 days and media darling. He is a true friend to Jews around the world and especially the people of Israel. He has traveled to Israel several times during past few years, touring the areas of Judea and Samaria and praying by the Western Wall. He loves the Jewish people and the Jewish people love him.
In his new book, TRUMP, THE BLUE-COLLAR PRESIDENT, Scaramucci details his life from childhood through his rise into the world of Wall Street and international finance, and his ties to the White House both on the inside and from not as far as many would think.
Anthony “The Mooch” Scaramucci tells the inside story of how Donald J. Trump, a billionaire living on Fifth Avenue, identified the struggle of blue-collar Americans, and won the Presidency.
There are many lessons this easy read, yet informative, book. Scaramucci doesn’t look at failures, but rather challenges to success. It is also apparent that Scaramucci admires and respects his former employer.
The country is doing so much better that it has fostered a rage from the establishment. They can’t believe he is doing so well without their help.
As one reads the book, you can’t help but wonder how similar both personalities are. Both are media darlings who live out their professional and personal lives for everyone to admire or critique. Both have incredible energy and challenge themselves like little boys riding a bike for the first time.
The jacket endorsements are from Judge Jeanine Pirro and Sean Hannity. Scaramucci shares life’s ups and downs with funny anecdotes, then closes his book stating something about the president that closely ties to himself – we can’t wait to see the next act.
The President stills sees himself as the 25 year old that empty the vending machines at his family’s apartment complexes.
TRUMP, THE BLUE-COLLAR PRESIDENT is the comeback story for America and Americans. Both Wall Street and Main Street are now thriving and will continue to do so under our current president and his economic policies. Scaramucci shares his insights and stories from his long-term relationship with President Trump.
