THE TRUMP EFFECT: DEPROGRAMMING THE AMERICAN MIND explores the psychological meaning of Donald J. Trump's election as President of the United States as "Deprogrammer in Chief".
When working as an actor in the Cuban film industry as a young man, filmmaker Agustin Blazquez met Che Guevara personally. The revolutionary legend had come to shake hands with the cast and crew of his film, and Blazquez was among those granted an audience with the guerrilla leader. Not long afterwards, Guevara was killed in the jungles of Latin America...and Blazquez subsequently fled Cuba as a political exile.
The Trump effect is the deprogramming of the American mind, and Trump is the Deprogrammer-in-Chief.
