Trump Era Cinema

Following the instincts of Little White Lies’ series on Obama era cinema. What qualifies for this list include films influenced by and commenting upon the presidential campaign of 2015-16, documentaries, films released and in development between 2017-20, earlier films picked up by journalists and the administration for their parallels to our contemporary situation, and films made or starring members of the administration. Excluded are films that can be seen to draw parallels in retrospect but were outside of the Trump connection during their development period (e.g. Get Out, Logan Lucky).
Please send suggestions!
