Nick Adams Bio
Nick Adams is a three-time best-selling author, commentator and currently serves as a surrogate for the White House.
Born and raised in Australia, Adams is a legal immigrant to America, receiving a rare Extraordinary Ability Green Card.
His book, Green Card Warrior, detailing his journey to America, received special distinction in March 2017, with President Donald Trump declaring it "a must read." It was the first time in the history of the United States that a sitting President has ever endorsed a book. On August 25, 2017, President Trump took to Twitter to praise Adams' previous book Retaking America, resulting in several news outlets declaring him "the President's favorite author".
His previous two books were endorsed by Chuck Norris, Mike Huckabee, Sean Hannity, Ben Carson, Allen West, Glenn Beck, Dana Perino, Oli North, Hugh Hewitt, National Review, The Heritage Foundation and the NRA.
He has received several major honors, including Honorary Texan (Gov. Perry), Honorary Oklahoman (Gov. Fallin) and Kentucky Colonel (Gov. Bevin).
Adams has appeared on virtually every major television and radio program, and his work has been published in newspapers around the world.
In the United States, he has spoken at conventions, corporate meetings, military bases, universities, high schools and churches, in 30 states. Abroad, he has given major addresses in England, Germany and South Korea.
Adams is the Founder and Executive Director of The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG) (www.flagusa.org), an organization that visits elementary, middle and high schools to provide training to increase patriotic pride and bridge the major civics deficiency that currently exists. The FLAG board includes luminaries such as Col. Allen West, Dennis Prager, Pete Hegseth, and many others.
He is a survivor of childhood cancer, given at the age of sixteen months, just a five percent chance of survival. Adams earned both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Sydney. He was publicly elected the youngest Deputy Mayor in Australian history in Sydney, at the age of twenty-one.
He is fluent in German.
