The Presidential Photographs
White House Photographers (photography)
The definitive visual portrait of Donald J. Trump’s presidency, as seen through the lens of the Official White House Photographers
Working with the trust and close confidence of President Trump, the Official White House Photographers are granted unprecedented freedom to accompany the First Family behind the scenes. Their images capture a side of the president unseen by the controlled gaze of the media. Now, these extraordinary photographs are shared with the nation.
Selecting the finest images from the White House collection, Trump: A Presidential Portrait is a stunning all-access pass to the 45th presidency. These historic photos portray both the grandest and most intimate moments, offering an insider’s look beyond the gates of the White House, and behind closed doors of the Oval Office, the Situation Room, and Air Force One, as well as President Trump’s official trips across the nation and the world.
Accompanied by quotations from the president’s speeches, Trump: A Presidential Portrait offers a unique window of many of the most consequential events of the Trump administration: the appointments of Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh, the construction of the border wall, the White House Situation Room on the day of the raid that killed ISIS leader al-Baghdadi, the seventy-fifth anniversary commemoration of D-Day, and leadership of the nation's response to the coronavirus pandemic. We also see President Trump perform the solemn duties of the commander-in-chief: addressing the troops at military bases across the globe, awarding the Medal of Honor, visiting Arlington National Cemetery, bearing witness in the aftermath of natural disasters. And there are intimate, private scenes of the President and First Lady at the White House, as they entertain foreign dignitaries and share quiet moments with family.
Featuring more than 250 photographs in gorgeous full-color, here is the first book to gather the official photographs of the Trump White House—and an essential visual documentary of American history. The photographs in this collection have been selected with care by the editors of William Morrow and reproduced to the highest standards.
