1950s Show Prophesied Trump's Promise To Build A Wall

Among all the Trump-related news that have been circulating the Internet since he announced his candidacy in the presidential race, the one you're about to read is probably the weirdest.

Of all the TV shows, movies, books and psychics that somewhat predicted the rise of the 45th President of the United States, a 1958 episode of the Western-themed show Trackdown came closest to accurately predicting Trump's rise.

In the 30th episode of the now-obscure TV show, the late Lawrence Dobkin plays the role of a snake oil salesman who tried to convince the residents of a town that he could shield them from threats and prevent the end of the world by building a wall around them. Sounds familiar?

What makes this even more eerie is the fact that the salesman's name was Walter TRUMP!

The synopsis of the episode titled The End of the World reads: "Walter Trump, a confidence man, puts on a long robe and holds a tent meeting in the town of Talpa. He tells the townspeople that a cosmic explosion will rain fire on the town and that he is the only one that can save them from death. Ranger Hoby Gilman attempts to prove Trump is a fraud."

A clip from the episode started circulating online in November 2016 after it was published to YouTube with the caption, "This 1958 TV Western PREDICTED DONALD TRUMP.”

The rise of fake-news has compelled people to categorize this claim as false but websites like IMDB and Snopes.com has since verified the claim and turns out, it is very real.

Check it out below:

Walter's wall turned out to be a scam for money and in the end he was shot and killed. I wonder if there's anything more we can learn from the rest of the episode to help us predict President Trump's next move in relation to the wall?
