The Conservative Case for Trump

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Conservative Case for Trump is a 2016 book by Phyllis Schlafly, a movement conservative best known for helping to defeat the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s.[1] The book was published in September 2016, following the nomination of Donald Trump for President of the United States, and explains in detail Schlafly's rationale for branding Trump as a serious conservative and (in her opinion) a better candidate than Hillary Clinton.

The book, co-written by Ed Martin and Brett M. Decker,[2] describes Trump's anti-establishment stances on the following issues:

One argument the book makes is that Republicans who do not support Trump would wind up helping to elect Hillary Clinton instead of him.[3] It also argues that Republicans and independents ought to "unify behind his candidacy". (See Buckley Rule.)

Economics professor Thomas DiLorenzo says the book makes a case for "saving America from socialist tyranny".

The book's publication followed Schlafly's tussle with the board of the Eagle Forum after she unilaterally endorsed Trump's presidency.[1]
