The Trump Show: now streaming on BBC Select via the Apple TV app & Amazon Prime Video Channels

People laughed when he tweeted that he was standing for President. He showed them. They thought he’d change when he took office. He doubled down. This is the story of four years of Trump, according to the insiders who aided him – Steve Bannon, Omarosa Newman, Pastor Mark Burns, and Anthony Scaramucci. Through sex scandals, a pandemic, impeachment, public unrest… the whole world was watching. It was one hell of a show.

Omarosa Newman

From The Apprentice to the White House

Manigault Newman first met Trump in 2003, as a contestant on The Apprentice’s was in its first season. She joined Trump’s 2016 election campaign as director of African American outreach in the 2016, then taking the position of director of communications for the White House office of public liaison.

Steve Banon

The second most powerful man in Washington?

As executive chairman of Breitbart – a staunchly conservative news website – Banon was an early cheerleader for Trump and Trumpism.

He immediately became Trump’s Chief Strategist and was credited with pulling the strings behind the scenes, but fell out of President Trump’s favour in 2017.
