I am a voter and want to really know our candidates because so many times our country has experienced the old bait and switch in the winners of the Presidential election. So, I am wondering if the documentary is truthful.
The Making of Trump is filled with interviews and sound bites of Trump’s successes and failures. We meet the swagger, the ego, the outrageous claims, and of course…the hair. I never understood his do, but who am I to say. I am not a hairdresser.
The documentary is not really a story, but more of film clips that try to show how a kid from Queens took New York City and then the nation by storm. In truth, the documentary didn’t answer the question “What kind of leader might Trump make?”
I discovered in the documentary, which, by the way, doesn’t have a director, but a hand full of editors, his father loaned him a million dollars, which he turned into a ten-billion-dollar empire. Trump owns golf courses and is media-savvy. He authored best-selling books like “The Art of the Deal” and had a hit TV show called “The Apprentice.” He has 5 kids, 3 sons, and 2 daughters, by 3 wives. His wives are Ivana, Marla, and Melania. Melania was born in Yugoslavia in 1970. Donald Trump announced he was running for president of the United States on June 16, 2015.
There are 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 truly American phenomenon, and he has woken up our citizens by saying such things as, “So Bush certainly wasn’t the greatest, and Obama has not done the job. And he’s created a lot of disincentives. He’s created a lot of great dissatisfaction. Regulations and regulatory is going through the roof. It’s almost impossible to get anything done in the country.”
