He’s been called an impostor, a fraud, a fake. A charlatan. His own ghostwriter for the book “The Art of the Deal” called him a sociopath. There are many words that describe Donald Trump, and there are just as many words that don’t describe him: Conservative. Decent. Serious. Presidential.
Donald Trump spearheaded one of the most divisive campaigns in modern politics and, in the eyes of many in his own party, was unfit to hold the highest office in the land. To the shock of a majority of American voters, he was victorious in his quest to sit in the Oval Office.
But as the dust of the campaign settles and the reality of a Donald Trump presidency sets in, how will the world view this man? As an insurgent? Is this the story of someone “who fights” taking on power while taking power? Or has this all been a hostile takeover from an invader that played out on national television as sane people watched and despaired? Will Trump be remember as the head of a movement, or the head of a snake? Or even as the snake-oil salesman and crony who hoodwinked millions?
“The Sociopath”, a film by Ben Howe, will show you not only who this man is, but more importantly, how he got to where he is, who supported him in doing so, and what it could mean for the future of the nation now that he is president.
