Trump: What's The Deal?
When this film was made, a quarter of a century ago - yikes! - people were ready to write off Donald Trump. One person who was not impressed with him was the late Christopher Reeve. What would he make of Donald J. Trump, President Elect of the United States?
The people who put this film together were clearly not Trump supporters much less friends, although for the appearance of balance, some of the latter have been included. So was Trump a bully, a con man, even a snake oil salesman? None of that matters now, clearly he was and is a successful businessman, even if he did play footloose with the law at times, and get lucky when he could have gone bust. Time will tell if Americans have made the right decision, but another quarter of a century on, expect to see a far more favourable biography of Trump the politician: on film, on paper, and in the public perception.
