Gary Younge: ‘Trump’s base overwhelmingly wealthy and white’

Europe Editor and Presenter

Tomorrow marks exactly a year since Donald Trump was elected. To mark that occasion, journalist Gary Younge has been travelling through the US from the whitest state in the Union, Maine, to the blackest, Mississippi, to find out why so many white Americans are feeling left behind and voted for Trump. In his new documentary, Angry, White and American, he has a series of encounters, including one with the white supremacist Richard Spencer.
