This 1958 western featured a conman called Trump trying to build a wall and it’s just uncanny

This clip of a 1958 episode of a TV western called Trackdown went viral because it appears to predict the rise of Donald Trump.

It features a snake oil salesman called Trump – figures – who wants to build a wall around a town to stop the end of the world (watch until the end).

Everything about it is just perfect, from the ‘high priest of fraud’ to the ‘big lie that can make us all kids again’.

Uncanny. But will it end the same way for modern day Trump as it did for his namesake in 1958?

People naturally wondered if it was just a clever hoax.

But no, it’s not. At least, not according to these people who spent a bit of time looking into it.
