With his signature mix of avuncular charm and piercing insight, Michael Moore analyses the rise of Donald Trump. Beginning with the origins of Trump's campaign, Moore goes on to chart the problems that have worsened under his presidency - before focusing on the burgeoning fightback. With a title that refers to his previous missive on the state of America (Fahrenheit 9/11), Moore compels his country to take a hard look at itself.
Moore also guides us through the events that have allowed for Trump to take office, comparing him to demagogues of the past, as well as interrogating the role of the Obama administration and the media in facilitating his rise. He also foregrounds vivid examples of recent events that have shaken US culture to the core such as the Flint water crisis, the Stone Douglas High School shooting, and the West Virginia teacher's strike - viewing them all in light of Trump's impact.
