Trump's Unlikely Superfans

Documentary about the rise of Donald Trump. Angela Scanlon meets with the passionate and unlikely people stumping for him to find out why they support his controversial campaign.

Donald Trump has divided and astonished America with his own brand of politics. Once seen as the outside contender, he is now one step away from the White House as the Republican presidential nominee.

Accused of being racist, sexist and a liar by some in his own party, millions of others have been inspired to join his campaign, believing he can 'Make America Great Again'. To investigate his meteoric rise Angela Scanlon meets the devoted and passionate people stumping for Trump and explores why his bold and often controversial policies appeal to them.

She talks to the twin sisters who, despite his comments about women, still adore him, a second-generation Mexican American who wants nothing more than Trump to build a wall to keep illegal immigrants out, and a young black American who believes Trump is precisely the president the country needs to pull itself up by its bootstraps.
