A 1958 TV Show Had an Unsavory Character Named “Trump” Who Promised to Build a Wall & Save the World

You’re not watching an episode from the The Twilight Zone.

No, this clip is from the 1950s western TV series Trackdown

Or, to be more precise, it comes from a 1958 episode called “The End of the World.”

The clips features Lawrence Dobkin playing the role of “Walter Trump,” a fraud who rides into town claiming,  “that only he could prevent the end of the world by building a wall.”

The episode ends, in case you’re wondering, with the fear-mongering Trump getting placed under arrest.

Freedom and sanity are restored. Hurray.
