TV Show from 1958 Featured a Con Man Named Trump Selling a Wall

This is amazing: In 1958, CBS aired an episode of “Trackdown” in which a con man attempted to sell a town a “wall” in order to protect them from the fake threat of a meteor shower. The con man’s name was Trump. The show’s main character ultimately exposes Trump as a fraud who was plotting with the town’s sheriff to sell the wall. His final words: “You’re under arrest Trump.”
