About the Movie
Donald Trump is one of the richest and most famous men in America, but on what foundation has his success been built? From accusations of harassment to repeated flirtations with bankruptcy, his very public business career has been one of artifice and intrigue; a Machiavellian performance played out before the American media. Originally produced in 1991, “Donald Trump: What's the Deal?” investigates the unscrupulous reality behind this most public of figures. Swaggering and assured, exaggerated statements have become Trump's trademark, making him as much a celebrity as a businessman; a poster boy for American capitalism. This air of cocky invincibility has, however, repeatedly hidden a questionable and often duplicitous business approach. Ignoring the facade, this remarkable and revealing documentary exposes the unsavory truth of the self-professed 'People's Billionaire'.
Perfect time capsule, unearthed at the perfect time
Excellent introduction to 80’s and 90’s Donald Trump and wonderful to watch in the current political climate. Great titles and music, fascinating personal stories from people affected by his actions, from the Wolman rink debacle to his miscalculated investment in the casino business. The true revelation of this film is that, no matter how much Trump is demonized by colleagues, friends, and the press, he remains impervious to criticism. His total inability to see beyond his narrow gilded view is fascinating to behold. This film was made at a time when Trump’s zealotry was a tiny hurricane on Manhattan island, causing bluster and eliciting ire, but relatively self-contained. Anyone watching this series of misadventures today would be hard-pressed to imagine what their impact could be on a global scale, but it’s certainly interesting to try.
Very Negative and biased.
New Trump, Old Trump, Same Trump: WOW!
This movie is eerily similar, despite being over 25 years old, to what we are seeing now! What a fantastic biopic - and such a scary man!
