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] It was her final book, being published posthumously.[2] 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 viewing Trump a serious conservative and a better candidate than Hillary Clinton.

The book, co-written by Ed Martin and Brett M. Decker,[3] 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.[4] It also argues that Republicans and independents ought to "unify behind his candidacy". (See Buckley Rule.)

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