Trump: An American Dream
9pm, Channel 4
Well made as programmes like this are, they are hard to watch: you feel almost physically embarrassed for the US that their supposedly hallowed seat of high office is occupied by this swollen, ignorantly bullish yet oddly dainty, pathological narcissist. This four-part series follows Trump across five decades as a businessman, developer and media star. What’s strange is that for all his highprofile failures, he did once seem sane and lucid.
