The Divider tells the inside story of the four years when Donald Trump went to war with Washington, from the chaotic beginning to the violent finale. Their ambitious and lasting history of the full Trump presidency contains dozens of exclusive scoops and stories from behind the scenes in the White House, from the absurd to the deadly serious.
The bestselling authors argue that Trump was not just lurching from one controversy to another; he was learning to be more like the foreign autocrats he admired.
Peter Baker is the chief White House correspondent for The New York Times, a political analyst for MSNBC, and the author of Days of Fire and The Breach. Susan Glasser is a staff writer for The New Yorker and author of its weekly "Letter from Trump's Washington," as well as a CNN global affairs analyst.
Their first assignment as a married couple was as Moscow bureau chiefs for The Washington Post, after which they wrote Kremlin Rising. They also coauthored The Man Who Ran Washington, a New York Times bestseller. They live in Washington, D.C., with their son.
