The major series exploring Donald Trump’s extraordinary life continues. As the 1990s start it’s all going south for Donald. His wife Ivana knows about his long-term affair with Marla Maples and is after a vast divorce settlement. His business is in deep financial trouble, and the man behind The Art of the Deal is on the verge of bankruptcy. The tabloid press and daytime talk shows pick over Donald’s personal life. The man who had the Midas touch has now become a national joke. Interviews with Liz Smith, Phil Donahue and Geraldo Rivera explain Trump’s disastrous decline. Trump tries to rebuild his reputation. But he’s caught out pretending to be ‘Roger Miller’, a man who’s been hired to do Donald’s PR because he is so busy. ‘Roger Miller’ boasts of Trump’s prowess with the ladies, and that his business empire is not doing as badly as people are making out. Donald is caught out using this alias. He admits to his strange behaviour, then has a child with Marla, and gets married. Soon after the marriage he manages to float part of his empire on the stock exchange, giving him some much needed money. He publishes a book, The Art of the Comeback, and soon it’s evident that Donald is bouncing back.
