Book Cover for Steven Hassan's The Cult of Trump.

Steven Hassan is a leading expert on the subject of cults. His new book, “The Cult of Trump,” details the many techniques infamous cult leaders like Jim Jones, David Koresh, and Sun Myung Moon used to keep their followers obedient and unquestioning, a subject Hassan has firsthand knowledge of, having himself been indoctrinated into and then deprogrammed from Moon’s Unification Church in the 1970s.

“The Cult of Trump” draws direct, uncanny parallels to the current occupant of the White House and the tactics he uses to exercise control over both his base and the GOP.
