The Donald Trump & Back to the Future mashup you've been waiting for

trump1.jpg

We've tried to ignore it and hope it goes away, but no - it really does seem as though Donald Trump is serious about running for President.

And the terrifying thing about it is that he just might win. No one gave the likes of Ronald Reagan or Arnold Schwarzenegger much of a chance when they were first bidding for office, but in they went, scooping up power in a shower of acclaim.

He's already managed to accused Mexico of sending rapists across the border, arguing that a "great, great wall" should be built on the border (well, it worked for Hadrian, didn't it?), while also offending US war hero John McCain - who spent five and half years as a Vietnamese Prisoner - saying “He’s not a war hero. He’s a war hero because he was captured? I like people who weren’t captured.” There's gratitude right there.

But three days ago it was announced that he'd surged into the lead in polls to be the Republican candidate for 2016. People, this could actually happen.

It turns out, though, that Trump's bid for the Presidency actually extends all the way back to 1985, as this fantastic mashup with Back To The Future II, made by James Montalbano, demonstrates. Is Marty McFly pleased with the news? Watch below and find out.
