New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has been covering Donald Trump for years. In her new book, "Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America," she traces his origins as a New York real estate developer, first in his father's company, then as he created his own, and his many financial crises and recoveries.
She writes about how his experience dealing with the world of politicians, construction and the media formed the man he became as president. Here & Now's Robin Young talks to Haberman about the book, her reporting and why Trump remains her subject even after he's left office.
