Every prejudice that Trump and his supporters cling to has been reinforced by Hollywood movies for years. If those who support Trump have a very limited view of the world, that limited view is presented as sterling and profitable entertainment by an industry that wants the world white, fixed and non-diverse. There is, actually, a direct connection between a populist demagogue and populist entertainment.
