Donald Trump - the underrated president
Documentation • 15.09.2020 • 8.15 p.m.

In Europe, Donald Trump would find it difficult to win an election. Too bizarre and hardly interested in real politics seems to many critics the multibillionaire, who in the USA was still mainly chosen by poor people. His opponents at home are amazed that the political outsider in the White House is still living there at the end of his first term in office. Donald Trump survived numerous missteps and taboos, even an impeachment procedure. A few weeks before the US presidential elections, the authors Florian Huber and Carsten Oblaender take stock of Donald Trump's four years. In doing so, they try to understand him from the perspective of his followers. Huber and Oblaender's script is based on the campaign promises made by the orange-clad: economy, immigration, foreign policy and the "fight against the establishment". Did the former reality TV star live up to his announcements?

Insiders report from Trump's power center such as his former press spokesman Sean Spicer, his successor Anthony Scaramucci and the dazzling Omarosa Manigault, who made it from the candidate in Trump's TV show "The Apprentice" to the White House. Well-known experts and critics such as the Trump biographer Gwenda Blair complete the picture with biographical and political backgrounds.

The relationship between the USA and Germany and Europe has also changed more in four years than many experts would have thought at the beginning of Trump's first term in office. Interview partners such as the former Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel, European top politician Jean-Claude Juncker and the AfD parliamentary group leader Alice Weidel, one of the few confessing Trump supporters in Germany, describe these perspectives.
