Donna Brazile Offers an Insiders View of What Happened to Put Donald Trump in the White House
In a her new book, “Hacks,” Democratic Strategist and former head of the Democratic National Convention, Donna Brazile, said Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.” The must-read memoir details what really happened during the 2017 election that put Donald Trump in office.
