Main Plot Points:
- The swagger, the ego, the outrageous claims…the hair! This is the story of how a kid from Queens took New York City and then the nation by storm. So, what’s his story? And what kind of leader might he make? From his interviews with Phil Donahue to statements from celebrities, politicians, and those close to him, rarely seen footage sheds some light. Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is a true American phenomenon.
What We Thought:
- Donald Trump has become a caricature of himself now, but The Making of Trump shows you the past 40 years of Trump living the American dream.
- The average person hates him at this point, but that’s because they believe everything they see/hear in the media. This shows what he’s done in life. Sure his father was pretty wealthy and he got his start because of that, but he still took it way beyond his father.
- My dad never loaned me a million dollars to get my start, but it’s not Trump’s fault he had that opportunity. He took that money and ran with it creating a brand and company that put him on the Forbes list. Sure, he’s made some bad decisions/investments, but he’s always come out on top.
- This just shows that you may not like him as a person or as a candidate, but the guy lived his version of the American dream. He’s a proud American that has talked about jobs and turning places around. He has since the 1970’s.
- He clashed with Mayor Ed Koch, but he did help resurrect New York City and brought it out of the terrible place it was in the early 70’s. Whether it was Trump Tower, The Plaza or any other place, he put money into an area and saved it. Sure he made a ton of money as well, but he still did it when others wouldn’t.
- This was made after the first Republican Debate, but it’s not up to date with how far he is now and who has dropped out. He’s still seen as a fluke candidate in this, but the fact that he’s the Republican frontrunner today should show you how serious he did take it despite his antics.
- Trump supporters will obviously like The Making of Trump, but if you watch it with even a slightly open mind, you might learn a thing or two about him and how he seems to genuinely care about this country.
