Our New President (2018) Poster

The story of Donald Trump's election told entirely through Russian propaganda, including Youtube videos by common Russians and Russia Today, the most popular and unashamedly manipulative TV news network.

Russia Today which I've watched on occasion is one of many news organizations influenced by Putin to promote Russian nationalism (a more intense version of Fox). Objective reality is out; promoting the values of a love of Russia (analogous to a love of U.S. by our own) is the new media standard. As other docs have discussed, members of Trump's family & business interests have discussed future investments (resorts, casinos, hotels) in Russia. Russia in turn sees Trump as more favorable than Clinton, and ended up broadcasting that Clinton was physically & mentally fragile as well as being a hostile threat to Russian security. They even, which I find a bit hard to believe, suggested that many deaths both of her advisors & her opponents were orchestrated by her. Hmmmm? Criticism: Would have liked a bit more independent verification from other sources especially w/so many brief extracted/cut scenes.
