Why you should care

As The Art of the Deal puts it, “the worst of times often create the best opportunities to make good deals.”

It’s time to anticipate Donald J. Trump in the Oval Office in just the sort of fashion such a scene demands — a comic strip. In TRUMP, the Presidency, OZY explores how a President Trump might make America great again. Watch for our latest installment every Thursday.

In this fifth volume — “The Art of the Steal”— President Trump shows Vladimir Putin the art of the deal. In our first volume — “Congress, You’re Fired” — President Trump precipitated a constitutional crisis with his Supreme Court pick. In the second — “The Great Wall of America” — labor problems threatened to derail his first big domestic project. In the third — “Barriers to Entry” — he unveiled his plan to keep Muslims out of America, and in the fourth — “Rogue Warfare” — he sends two special emissaries overseas to handle ISIS and North Korea.
