Dinesh D’Souza is a bestselling author and award-winning filmmaker. His political documentaries “2016: Obama’s America” and “America: Imagine a World Without Her” are among the highest-grossing political films of all time. An immigrant who grew up in Mumbai, India, Dinesh came to the United States in 1978 as an exchange student. He attended Dartmouth College, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. He was a domestic policy analyst at the Reagan White House, and also a scholar at think tanks such as the American Enterprise Institute and the Hoover Institution at Stanford. Dinesh has written nearly 20 books and made five movies. His latest book “United States of Socialism” was a New York Times bestseller. The film based on that book, “Trump Card,” released on video on demand in the fall of 2020. He teamed up with his wife Debbie to produce a daily podcast which debuted January of 2021 and is part of the Salem Podcast Network. In 2022, D’Souza media teamed up with True the Vote to bring to light the most important movie in America called 2000Mules. It is set to be released the first week of May, 2022. Dinesh and Debbie live in the Lonestar State and together have three grown children.
As the author of over 15 nationally renowned books—many of them #1 New York Times bestsellers—D’Souza has been invited to speak to groups all over the country on politics, philosophy, and Christianity. His razor-sharp wit and entertaining style have allowed him to participate in highly-publicized debates about politics and Christianity with some of the most famous atheists and leftists of our time, including Christopher Hitchens, Bill Ayers, and others.
One of D’Souza’s favorite venues for debates and speeches has always been college campuses. During the past 25 years, he has appeared at hundreds of colleges and universities and spoken with hundreds of thousands of students in these live settings.
D’Souza has been named one of America’s most influential conservative thinkers by the New York Times Magazine. The World Affairs Council lists him as one of the nation’s 500 leading authorities on international issues, and Newsweek cited him as one of the country’s most prominent Asian-Americans.
D’Souza’s articles have appeared in virtually every major magazine and newspaper, including the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic Monthly, Vanity Fair, New Republic, Forbes, and National Review. He has appeared on numerous television programs, including Tucker Carlson Tonight, Real Time with Bill Maher, Hannity, The Ingraham Angle, The Today Show, Nightline, The News Hour on PBS, NPR’s All Things Considered, and The Glenn Beck Program.
