When Washington D.C. was first built, it was on top of a swamp that had to be drained. Donald Trump says it's time to drain it again.

In The Swamp, bestselling author and Fox News Channel host Eric Bolling presents an infuriating, amusing, revealing, and outrageous history of American politics, past and present, Republican and Democrat. From national political scandals to tempests in a teapot that blew up; bribery, blackmail, bullying, and backroom deals that contradicted public policies; cronyism that cost taxpayers hundreds upon hundreds of millions of dollars; and personal conduct that can only be described as regrettable, The Swamp is a journey downriver through the bayous and marshes of Capitol Hill and Foggy Bottom.

The presidential election of 2016 was ugly, but it exposed a political, media, industry, and elite establishment that desperately wanted to elect a politician who received millions of dollars from terror-funding states over a businessman willing to tell the corrupt or incompetent, “You’re fired.”

The book concludes with a series of recommendations for President Trump: practical, hard-headed, and concise ways to drain the swamp and force Washington to be more transparent, more accountable, and more effective in how it serves those who have elected its politicians and pay the bills for their decisions.

Last year President Trump declared Wake Up America to be a "huge" book; Eric Bolling's second book is sure to build on that success. Entertaining and timely, The Swamp is the perfect book for today's political climate.

  • A Stirring Call for ACTION

    By Steve H - Palm Beach FL
    Many years ago, Ayn Rand gave us a few great novels that gave us clear examples of why we need small government -- not the huge, all encroaching monsters we have today My favorite phrase is "Let the Swamp creatures howl." I agree and the MORE they howl, it becomes clearer that we are getting closer and closer to hitting where it starts to really hurt. Like many Americans, I voted for Trump and sometimes cringe at some of the tweets and the seemingly petty shouting going back and forth across the edges of the Swamp. Thank you Eric -- your words give me renewed confidence that these are the RIGHT battles and that these are fights WE HAVE TO HAVE ... the sooner the better. Well done

    This book covers everything that an American thinks and worries about. We live in the best country but greed and corruption are evil forces that are not easily detected. Bottom line is Dems and liberals are much worse than Republicans. Trump is the only person we can hope for to drain the swamp. The author is dead on center. Good job. Actually great job.
