Trump on Culture: Brave New World?

Hot on the heels of Donald Trump's first 100 days in office, Alastair Sooke travels to America to ask what the new president's impact on America's cultural landscape will be.

Hot on the heels of Donald Trump's first one hundred days in office, Alastair Sooke travels to America to ask just what the new president's impact on America's cultural landscape is going to be. Alastair finds out what the implications are of Trump's plans to eliminate all federal funding for culture and meets with major figures from the worlds of music, literature, journalism, film and television, as well as a range of visual artists who love and loathe Trump in equal measure.
