ABOUT

SYNOPSIS

Donald Trump's rhetoric increased America's political divide with the help of the mainstream media. On one side, he gave strength and safety to his supporters and, on the other side, he imposed fear and anger on his opponents, which led to major confrontations across the country. Trumphobia: what both sides fear goes deeper into Americans' minds to truly understand the current divide, it stands in the middle of the road between Trump supporters and his opponents, and proposes empathy and compassion for all as a possible solution to the turmoil.
