THE TRUMP SHOW: MEET THE CAST
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.
