SBS screens a two part political documentary, America’s Great Divide: From Obama To Trump.
As the 2020 election dawns, America is a country deeply divided. A decade that began with a president who promised national unity is ending with his successor facing impeachment and an electorate that’s been described as more polarised than at any other time since the Civil War. America’s Great Divide: From Obama to Trump investigates how we got here – offering American television’s most comprehensive look at the divisive politics of the past decade, and what they mean for the new and pivotal one that’s beginning.
A look at how Barack Obama’s promise of unity collapsed as increasing racial, cultural, and political divisions laid the groundwork for the rise of Donald Trump.
Sunday, 2 August at 8.30pm on SBS.
