Set to Springsteen’s “Streets of Philadelphia,” Winslow’s latest effort focuses on voters in Pennsylvania, a key swing state Trump won in 2016 but where polls show him trailing Democratic challenger Joe Biden.
The footage shows farmers and steelworkers wrecked by Trump’s trade wars and tariffs, as well as the impact of the opioid crisis and the coronavirus pandemic. It also shines a light on voters who believed in Trump, only to be hurt by his presidency.
“I made this for Pennsylvania but it could be so many other states that have also been DEVASTATED by Donald Trump,” Winslow wrote.
The author of multiple New York Times bestselling novels has created a series of stinging videos to attack the Trump administration. This effort with Springsteen, produced by “Comey Rule” executive producer Shane Salerno, approached 5 million views after less than a day online.
It also drew widespread praise on Twitter:
