Amidst the craziness of COVID and the ongoing fight against racial injustice, this year’s election is about more than just policy. It’s about patriotism. President Trump’s America First brand of patriotism has trumpeted “winning.” But patriotism isn’t about being “first.” It’s about acknowledging our country’s flaws and working to fix them.
So I wrote America First*, a book turning Trump’s platform around to show how we’re really leading the world—in prison population, climate change denial, and more.
Ending on the most patriotic call-to-action of all: register to vote.
