Why Trump’s ‘winning temperament’ is turning into a political loser

  |   World News

Dave Shiflett once was responsible for developing the manifesto of a Donald Trump presidency. Hired in 1999 to ghostwrite “The America We Deserve,” Shiflett spent days with the real estate magnate, channeling his voice and temperament into the pages of a manuscript. The draft alarmed Trump’s aides. They demanded Shiflett come to Trump Tower for a meeting, where he said they told him to “turn the temperature down a few notches” by making the businessman sound less strident and more “inclusive.” The result was a relatively restrained and wonky book, with chapters on Social Security and foreign policy.
