What happened during the 2016 US presidential election? This is a question that many still continue to ask all around the world as some still continue to reel from the whirlwind of events that led up to Donald Trump becoming the 45th president of the United States.

In this well-written, highly accessible book, renowned political scientist and presidential studies scholar Michael A. Genovese expertly guides readers through the 2016 election, navigating the unexpected twists and turns—from outsiders Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump rising up in the Democratic and Republican parties repectively to the final race between Hillary Rodham Clinton and Donald Trump— that ultimately led up to the "trumping of American politics."
