What the fresh hell. This is REAL. Filmed in 1958- about a conman who grifts a small town of suckers into building a wall. History not subtle enough for you? GUESS THE GRIFTER'S NAME

In the comments to this tweet there are assumption, that “Trump” in the movie was a reference to Fred Trump, the father of Donald Trump.
That dude looks like Fred Trump too.

Fred Trump the slumlord, reviled by many in NYC back then. Woody Guthrie wrote him into a song back in 1950. https://t.co/88YXSa73vL
