Donald Trump is the first president in history to be impeached twice, this second time for allegedly inciting insurrection after his supporters stormed the Capitol Building during the 2021 United States Electoral College count, and one of his last acts in office was to pardon his former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

As Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday marked the end of Trump’s four-year presidential term, we invite you to check out these documentaries that examine the impact that the Trump administration has left on America and the rest of the world.
