Summary
Donald Trump's political worldview was molded in the courtroom. He sees law not as a system of rules to be obeyed and ethical ideals to be respected, but as a weapon to be used against his adversaries or a hurdle to be sidestepped when it gets in his way. Zirin shows how Trump has weaponized the justice system throughout his career, and he has continued to use these backhanded tactics as president. He reveals Trump's lengthy litigation history as an indication of his character and morality, and his findings are chilling. -- adapted from jacket
