I am not really sure where to begin with this video.
Let’s take, for example, the scene of Lee and Grant shaking hands at Appomattox. How can this be interpreted apart from Trump’s famous “very fine people on both sides” line after Charlottesville? I think David Blight might have something to say about this.
What about the ominous music when Trump talks about “our media culture?” This is yet another appeal to fear, the kind of appeal common among totalitarian rulers and strongmen.
