Unprecedented: The Election That Changed Everything


In a non-traditional, at times outlandish campaign, Donald Trump broke all the rules. But he tapped into a longing among Americans for a leader who would eschew political correctness and fight for them on immigration, guns and jobs. Trump took on long-held political traditions, insulting more than a few groups—and even his party’s leaders—along the way. But none of it mattered to voters who demanded change and admired Trump’s willingness to do things his way, critics be damned. The blustery businessman vanquished sixteen other Republicans before defeating former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who was hobbled by scandal on her second quest to become the nation’s first woman president. Trump’s election was nothing short of unprecedented.

Featuring a foreword from CNN’s Jake Tapper and an introduction by historian Douglas Brinkley, Unprecedented is the story of Trump’s extraordinary journey and triumph, in the first-ever book from CNN Politics. Packed with exclusive, stunning photography and new, revelatory reporting, Unprecedented details the most exciting election of modern times in the way that only CNN can.

Authored by top CNN Politics writer Thomas Lake and edited by award-winning veteran political reporter Jodi Enda, Unprecedented is filled with exclusive photos, commentary and behind-the-scenes stories from some of CNN’s greatest contributors, from reporter Carl Bernstein and correspondent Brian Stelter to Pulitzer Prize–winning photographer David Hume Kennerly. Together, their work makes this book the ultimate keepsake—and the first major historic account—of Trump’s ascendance to the presidency.
