“American Oligarchs”, by Andrea Bernstein, is exactly what it’s subtitle says it is. It’s the story of the Kushner and Trump families, and the marriage that brought them together. Bernstein does a superb job at writing a book that basically gives the families’ histories without too much silent sighing-at-what’s going on with these people? Neither family is on the up-and-up, though the Kushners may be (may be) slightly less heinous than the Trumps. Charlie Kushner’s still on his first wife, and t...more

I am giving this book 4 stars because it was logically written and well researched and documented. But reading it made me sick. Although I had read or heard some of these facts previously, reading them, compiled in one book was overwhelming. These two families are more than spoiled, rich men (and Ivanka), they are thugs who will do anything to get what they want. They have abused federal programs meant to help the underserved and laundered money. That one became president and the other works in ...more

Every American should read this book. The U.S. is in trouble.
It's a very clear chronology of the rise of the Trump and Kushner families, and how they've collided and blended into the kleptocratic shitstorm that we're now seeing 24/7 in the White House.
To be clear, most of what is written here has been in the public record for decades, including Trump's legal issues with his first hotel development, Jared's father's conviction and imprisonment, all the way to Jared's embrace of Arab autocrats and Trump's corruption of the Justice Dept. But nevertheless, it

His father was arrested for failure to disperse from a Ku Klux Klan rally. He was also investigated for profiteering by the U. S. Senate and the State of New York and sued by the Department of Justice for civil rights violations. His son-in-law’s father spent fourteen months in Federal prison for illegal campaign contributions, tax evasion, and witness tampering. These are the men Donald Trump and Jared Kushner idolize. So, can it be any surprise that Trump has proven to be a religious bigot and...more

I am no fan of the Trumps. Nor do I approve of many of the financial shenanigans engaged by him, his company, and his family. But the problem lies primarily with the loopholes created by legislators at the behest of the rich so they can avoid taxes and get richer all the while sucking at the public teat through government contracts. Trump himself has acknowledged publicly in one of the debates that he used money to purchase influence and garner favor. The Fact is that politicians love power and ...more

Greed, Power, and the Destruction of Democracy
Andrea Bernstein paints one of the most complete, succinct histories of how the Trump and Kushner families, representatives of the new American oligarchic class, are destroying the meaning of representative government for all in the United States. She traces the family origins of the Trumps and Kushners from their European roots, to their migration to the U.S., to business practices that have put both families at the pinnacle of both American wealth

It's nice to find all the of the fraudulent behavior and criminal activity in one place. All of her cited sources (she also conducted hundreds of off-the-record interviews- people were scared of retaliation) come from left-leaning publications, think tanks, and writers, so it's unlikely she's going to change any minds with this book, but there was so much that I had forgotten from the past 4 years that it served as a good review- plus we get the bad behavior of the Trump and Kushner ancestors.

I am rounding this up to 4.5 stars. This is a very clear, well-chronicled story of the Kushner and Tump families alliance (some might say unholy alliance). The reporting is spot-on and it was, for me, a horrifying tale of where we are today in a world where norms have been turned upside down. I did not read this book in one sitting. Since it was given to me as a gift, I was able to read some, put it down and pick it up again. I was also familiar with a lot of the content from the news.

If you read the news, you know Trump is a crook and a shady businessman. You don't need to read this book to know that. If you're from New York (as I am), you've known that since the 1980s.
You probably know less about the Kushners, though. And what you know less about is how they were able to purchase political influence and just how easily they avoided taxes. This book did nothing to improve my opinion of either Albany or Trenton. The late Gov. Mario Cuomo got one point for not falling for Tru

Could be subtitled: The Trump Dynasty - 90 years of cheating and lying.
Tracks the roots of the Trump and Kushner families: how they rose to prominence – not only by hard work and initiative, but by later generations leveraging fraudulent practices to avail themselves of government money and unwarranted tax breaks.
While the author does not uncover any new revelations, she weaves together the many threads of these two families over time to reveal a tapestry of wealth, greed, deception, intimidation and fraud that now threatens the very fabric of the American democrac

I’m just not able to finish this book. Halfway through is all I can manage. What I have learned is that the Kushner and the Trumps habitually skate perilously close to criminal conduct, and they do it on such a regular basis that it seems second nature to them. On occasion they tip over the edge into what surely looks like criminality. But fear not: they’ve had lots of experience dealing with such dilemmas. They simply hire the best lawyers (unless those same lawyers are already on retainer) to ...more
Very good book on how the Kushner and Trump families got to the levels of government and wealth they are now. They were immigrants who suffered in their home countries and made good here. But they made good through criminal activity and misuse of government. Now they own the government and the US democracy is in danger.

Treat yourself by listening to the audiobook. Andrea Bernstein is a pleasure to listen to. If you like Trump Inc podcast you will LOVE this book. It’s like five books in one, covering so many aspects of the Trump story over the years. Of all the Trump related books I’ve read - this is the only one so far to earn 5 stars

There isn’t really anything new here, just more detail, some details are very interesting or entertaining, but this will make only a negligible impact on the national conversational.
Trump's business and his presidential campaign are viewed as twined together in this book. This seemed clear even at the time he was running, so I wonder why it isn’t talked about more. The lines between the presidency and business blurred, because both revolved around power, and as power increases, wealth typic

This is an incredible book... The author has a long history as a journalist (WNYC) and has facts, experiences, contacts, and details that really make her story(ies) even more fascinating. Her writing style is both sharp and fluid and you just don't want to stop, all the time 'knowing how it ends'. (it doesn't!)
She traces the histories of the Trumps and the Kushners from their European roots and the way they wove their ways into the prominent super rich power brokers that they are today.

This gripping account of the rise of the Trump and Kushner families and their merger with Jared and Ivanka (merger seems to fit better than wedding) confirmed my saddest suspicions that cheating, lying, tax evasion and money laundering have turned our country into a kleptocracy.

The title of this book speaks for itself as to the subject matter and point of view. If you want to begin to understand what these two families are all about and their ultimate objectives, I believe this is a good place to begin.Free


It is not an easy read if you love America and believe in the value of American democracy. Yet it is a worthwhile read, in my view. You cannot begin to undo damage or regulate against it until you begin to understand the nature, scope, harm and future ramifications of it

American Oligarchs chronicles the marriage of the Trump and Kushner families and traces many of the unethical and illegal business dealings of both throughout their various generations. It made me really angry and definitely needed some editing but was a decent primer on how all the names in the Trump related investigation headlines connect.
I kind of dipped into and out of this book. I'd already heard a great deal of it via interviews with the author. Did not finish it mostly because it was due back at the library and someone else had put in a request, so could not renew, but it was hard for me to read large chunks at a time. Love the author's journalism and voice. ...more

Andrea Bernstein ends her book by observing that she did not let the perfect be the enemy of the good (one of my friend Mark’s favorite sayings) simply because it’s so difficult to keep track of all the dastardly deeds going on in the Trump and Kushner families. Brilliant reportage about the lying scum who are ruining our democracy.

'It is no coincidence that Donald J. Trump, the head of a family business who brought that business model to the White House and the executive branch of the government of the United States of America, is undoing decades of refugee and asylum laws at the same time he is tilting the country towards oligarchy.

Readable, well-researched background on how the politics of money works - using real estate industries manipulation of politics as paradigm. This read goes well with Jane Mayer's Dark Money, but since the advent of Trump, the money is in plain sight. President Emolument's long-standing preference for getting his way with direct payments is revealed in a specific NYC context, where politicians must be bought and kept on retainer to do real estate deals. The book does not really explain how the lo...more

“The Emoluments Clause states: “No Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.” This was a profoundly American idea, Teachout had written. “It showed a real split from the old European corrupt ways. The new Americans were insistent on this clause even though it caused some problems with diplomacy because there had been a lot of financial interchange between diplomats before. I had used it as an example of the American commitment to anti-corruption. I had never expected there would be a president who would blatantly violate it.” Corrupt governments and oligarchs had plenty of experience with Trump’s new corporate structure: you turn over a company to your children to wink at the world that” — 0 likes
