Divided States of America: Part One
Part One
Season 1  |  Episode 1  |  The History Channel  |  August 25, 2019

This documentary looks back at events during then-president Barack Obama's years in office that revealed deep divisions within the US, and the polarised America that Donald Trump inherits as president. We take an in-depth view of the partisan gridlock in Washington, the rise of populist anger on both sides of the aisle, and the racial tensions that erupted throughout the country. In this episode, we investigate the deep political divisions and bitter polarisation that grew during the Obama presidency and how the promise of change and unity collided with racial and political realities.
