Donald Trump - Filmmaker Takes Credit For Killing Donald Trump's Presidency Dream

A filmmaker is taking credit for halting Donald Trump's plans to run for the U.S. presidency with his documentary You'Ve Been Trumped.
The business tycoon-turned-reality TV star had hinted he would try to replace Barack Obama in the White House in 2012.
But he announced on Monday (16May11) he would not seek the Republican party presidential nomination - and director Anthony Baxter believes his expose may have swayed The Apprentice star's decision.
In the film, which is being shopped at the Cannes Film Festival in France, Trump is portrayed as a ruthless mogul who tries to bulldoze an area of Scotland to build a golf course.
Baxter tells the Hollywood Reporter, "The Donald Trump we saw in the making of this film is not the man Americans see on The Apprentice... I do think Mr. Trump realised he would be under severe scrutiny if he actually ran for president, and our film had become part of that dialogue.
"If our film has played even a small part in Mr. Trump's decision, then I think it's a credit to those who have been questioning the assumptions around the development."
