This intense, dynamic documentary from Alfred Peabody tackles the idea that poverty, corporate greed and other ills have made way for Trump to become president.

He wasn’t necessarily the candidate all who voted for him wanted. But people in Detroit? People who were impoverished and underworked? They hoped he could fix those problems. Now everyone must deal with the results of the symptomatic economic depression in the United States.

This is a heavily intense documentary covering the evolution of the increasingly volatile political atmosphere in the States, and worth a look.
