One of the nation’s most outspoken conservative talk radio kingpins is now leading The New York Times best-seller list for nonfiction. “Trump’s War: His Battle for America” by Michael Savage is now at the top of the heap, besting new offerings from both former President George W. Bush and Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

This is the author’s 26th book; the new list was revealed Monday.

Mr. Savage spent much of 2016 explaining President Trump’s campaign for his 10 million listeners and motivating undecided voters to back Mr. Trump — who was a frequent guest on the show. The author still has questions.

“The Mexico border wall, taxes, tariffs, deportations, Obamacare, guns, military strength, schools, abortion, religion — what will the new president do?” he asks. “Electoral victory was only the beginning. Trump and the patriots who elected him are going to have to fight their own eight-year war. The question is, what will that war look like? How is Donald Trump going to make good on all his promises?”

Mr. Savage writes that Mr. Trump is a powerful voice “counteracting the deafening din of left-wing noise,” advising readers that “the Establishment uses a corrupt media and an insidious network of agitators to wage a psychological war instead of a military one. Instead of shelling your town, they seek to imprison your mind with political correctness, envy politics and intimidation.”

The book is published by Center Street, the conservative imprint of the Hachette Book Group.

“Donald Trump is a patriot. He is a nationalist. He is trying to give the Americans who voted for him what they asked for. It’s really our battle for America, isn’t it?” Mr. Savage recently told Newsmax TV. “He’s congenial, he’s honest, he’s authentic. And the important thing to remember is this: Let’s say we only get 30 or 40 percent of his promises on the campaign trail. Let’s say it’s 30 percent. That’s 130 percent more than we would have gotten with Hillary Clinton.”
