Historian filmmakers Brett Sanders and Darren R. Reid took it to New York in 2016 to explore what people think of Donald Trump. The two made a short-documentary about the US election. Trump supporters refused to speak on camera, and the silence gave new meaning to the surprise victory.

Months after the presidency, their documentary is finally finished and edited. The documentary is a follow up on the previous documentary, on which the two filmmakers explored how people feel about his presidency.

In their first documentary, Brett and Darren explored how Americans feel about his use of xenophobia, anti-immigrant sentiment, sexism, and racism in his speech. Since people got in touch with them, they decided to do a follow up.

The documentary might be short, but it perfectly sums up what happened in the US election, and how people feel about it. Even those supporting Trump do not want to speak publicly.
