This documentary follows journalist Gary Younge as he examines how Donald Trump’s appeal to white people helped him win the presidency.
It was filmed shortly before the riots in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white supremacists clashed with anti-fascist protesters. This resulted in Younge meeting “alt right” leader Richard Spencer, which ends up in a furious, heated interview where among other things Spencer tells Younge that he wants a white “ethnostate”.
Younge also examines issues such as falling life expectancy and falling living standards in the USA.
Angry, White and American is on Channel 4 at 22.00.
