The Newsmakers: The Trump Effect

Polarised politics in the US are nothing new, but there's one man whose presidential race is polarising not only conservatives and liberals, but is driving a wedge straight down the middle of the Republican party. Donald Trump, the latest phenomenon to hit US politics started his bid for the Presidency with few seeing him as a real front-runner. But now just 10 months before America chooses its 45th President, - Donald Trump's race for the White House is gaining traction. But could the man who claims he could ''shoot someone and not lose voters'' really be the next President of the United States? Today's Newsmaker is Donald Trump as we ask if he really is what he says he stands for, or is he simply playing to the fears and paranoias of US society?
