Front Page Cafe to welcome Pulitzer Prize-winner David Cay Johnson

When Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign in 2015, David Cay Johnston was the first journalist to predict Trump could win the White House.

Johnston, who received the Pulitzer for his investigative reporting on loopholes and inequities in the U.S. tax code, also was the only journalist to get a copy of a Trump tax return.

Johnston met the 45th president in 1988 and has tracked him ever since in two books: "Temples of Chance" and the bestselling "The Making of Donald Trump."

In his most recent book, "It's Even Worse Than You Think: What the Trump Administration is Doing to America," Johnston takes readers inside decisions that are remaking the federal government and touching the lives of all Americans.

"It's Even Worse Than You Think" is already No. 2 on The New York Times' hardcover nonfiction best-seller list and No. 3 on the Wall Street Journal's list. As described on, Johnston's nonprofit news service, the book is the "other side" of the story told in Michael Wolff's book, "Fire and Fury": "Instead of exploring who Trump is and what his allies say about him, David's new book explains what the administration is doing to damage our government and your income, health and safety."
