Next Episode of Travels in Trumpland with Ed Balls is
Ed Balls travels to America's Deep South to immerse himself in the lives of those who put Trump in power, and learn how this reality TV businessman won them over.
Trump promised to make Americans proud again, so Ed joins the 15,000 working-class Americans heading to Saint-Jo, Texas, with their monster trucks and Confederate flags for the wild Rednecks with Paychecks festival - the ultimate celebration of Southern Pride.
Trump promised to be the president of law and order, and vowed to protect America's gun laws, so Ed heads to the state with the most gun murders in America, Louisiana, to find out if the president is delivering on his promise to make America safe again. Ed also travels to gun-toting Texas to find out why so many Americans are obsessed with their firearms. After a heated radio show debate with Texans who say they are willing to kill for their guns, Ed decides to make a visit to Parkland, Florida, where students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are campaigning for gun control after a 19-year-old armed with a semi-automatic assault rifle murdered 17 students and teachers just two weeks earlier.
Ed visits Mar-a-Largo in Palm Beach, Florida, where Trump can be found playing golf most weekends. Hosted by millionairess Toni, a close friend of the president's and founder of female Trump fan club The Trumpettes, Ed is put to work helping prepare for the Trumpette Ball, a huge, extravagant party Toni is throwing at Mar-a-Largo in her old friend's honour.
