‘HOW THE HELL DID DONALD TRUMP BECOME THE PRESIDENT OF THE United States?
2nd March 2021
THE ACCIDENTAL PRESIDENT is British filmmaker/journalist James Fletcher’s mission for answers on how the hell Donald Trump became President of the United States!
James not only uncovers a detailed play-by-play from all angles on how it all went down, but also the state of America that led to the results. What was it that Trump’s campaign was able to do and how did they capture the hearts and minds of the people. Hilary Clinton, a much more respected name in politics with history behind her was beaten by a former game show host. This documentary explores how Trump had an upper hand, with first hand knowledge on manipulating and in some ways controlling the media and people with a narrative that attracted more attention than the Clinton campaign resulting in votes!
“Even the most news addicted people may have forgotten the chronology, so it will be a refresher for them. And more than that, some of our interviewees shine light in a way it hasn’t been heard before, which is as interesting for the well-versed, and similarly less politically inclined. At core, it’s basically an account of a game show host becoming President of the United States… and it’s an outcome which has no single answer – more a confluence of events: the state of America, media, the way we communicate and a deep fatigue with the Washington system. Simple answer: I’d love to fire up the debate and hear people stress-testing their opinions as a result of seeing the film.” James Fletcher.
Featuring an impressive diverse set of fascinating interviews, sharing their own personal in sight into one lf the most shocking times in American history. James Fletcher has taken what could have simply been a “Trump-bashing” film and has instead created something for a much larger audience: everyone. An educated examination of the most controversial election in modern history, and one that every future campaign can and should learn from!
“History always needs different perspectives from different sources. That’s why there are over 50 biographies of Winston Churchill. While I am not saying Trump is the same as Churchill, he did however win a contest that landed him the most powerful office on earth and if that doesn’t warrant extensive examination, I don’t know what does. And the fact is, many people have yet to understand how it happened – or even accept that it did. No poll called it for him, supposed political experts didn’t see it coming, and many in the media missed it. So yes, we have a story to tell and it’s a damn good one”.
