Fictional television's second golden age at the start of the twenty-first century has taken the relationship of American politics and the small screen to unprecedented heights of intimacy. Before turning to evaluate the enduring challenge of studying the Donald J. Trump presidency, this conclusion chapter recaps and summarises some of the ground covered and arguments developed. The phenomenon that these arguments help to conceptualise will long outlast Trump's tenure. After that, the chapter highlights the importance of popular culture and fictional television in the contemporary era that is Trump's America. Trump's relationship with the screen, whether the television or his iPhone, has consistently illustrated why the Office of President is seen to enjoy the communicative benefits of the bully pulpit.
