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'.

Trump lies and cheats and cons his way into the hearts of everyday Americans
16 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is a good film. It is well done, and lays out the sleazy and dishonest career of New York's best known con man and bully. It's a fast moving, well documented story of an unprincipled man's rise to power, and the people he stepped on getting there.

It uses clips and tells the story of exactly how he got his money, and the kind of dishonest tactics he utilized. It is well documented, with several first hand accounts of what its like to be on the Donald's hit list.

If you ever wanted to know the gritty history behind the sleaze that is the Donald, this is a movie not to be missed.
