FRONTLINE: America's Great Divide: From Obama To Trump
Airs Monday, Jan. 13 and Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2020 at 9 p.m. on KPBS TV
FRONTLINE begins its 2020 election year coverage with a two-part, four-hour documentary series investigating America’s increasingly bitter, divided and toxic politics.
Episode 1 (Jan. 13) traces how Barack Obama’s promise of unity collapsed as increasing racial, cultural and political divisions laid the groundwork for the rise of Donald Trump.
Episode 2 (Jan. 14) examines how Donald Trump’s campaign exploited the country’s divisions and how his presidency has unleashed anger on both sides of the divide.
