The 2016 Presidential election could be a pivotal moment for the United States: a celebrity and billionaire is leading the polls. So he needs a running mate, right?
Donald Trump calls it like he sees it. His campaign slogan is simple and it caters to the working man: "Make America Great Again". So let's say he wins the Presidency, as a hypothetical situation.
In this hypothetical situation, he needs someone by his side who knows a thing or two about this country. Let's say he's from Detroit and is the opposite of Trump: doesn't live in a penthouse or work in a marble corridor. He doesn't go to work every day in a suit, put on make-up or spray his hair down with hairspray.
What he does is travel the country to tell your story. He knows about the veterans who serve only to come home and be treated like dirt by the VA. He knows that building a 30-foot wall between U.S. and Mexico probably won't work - ya know, it's really expensive plus 32-foot tall ladders for sale at The Home Depot.
He's seen the pain of Americans losing their jobs in Michigan and other states as American companies move overseas to save a few bucks.
And this hypothetical candidate knows Trump has struck a chord in America.
So what happened when this hypothetical candidate offered to give his resume to the GOP front-runner? This is The Americans with Charlie LeDuff.
