|Back to the Future writer confirmed that the character of Biff Tannen, the trilogy’s villain, was based on Donald Trump. In the second film, which was celebrated last year as part of Back to the Future day, Biff becomes a successful businessman who owns a huge casino and uses his money to influence the politics. In the movie, Biff used the profits from his 27-story casino (prototype of the 37-story Trump Plaza Hotel, completed in 1984) to help shake up the Republican Party and finally assume political power himself. Biff encourages every citizen of his home town to call him “America’s greatest living folk hero.” Remind of someone?
The writer of the movie said they thought about it when they made the movie. If you watch the second movie again, you find a scene where Marty meets Biff in his office and there’s a huge portrait of Biff on the wall behind him. There is also moment where Tannen stands up and takes exactly the same pose as the portrait.
As you may remember, Biff’s political sway in the movie leads to difficult times for the US people, turning Marty’s home town into a place filled with crime and corruption. However, the movie also predicted 2015 filled with hoverboards, self-tying laces and exhausted shark-thriller franchises. Back to the Future producers admitted they wanted to portray an optimistic, enjoyable, fun future, where the characters were still a mess.

|I remember reading something about this back around "back to the future day"(October 21, 2015).|
Bob Gale Legitimately claims to have based the character in part on Trump.(look at the Biff Tannen Wikipedia page)
I, personally think that SNL should Hire Thomas F.Wilson (the actor who played Biff) to do Trump for the next 4 years. (he's an active standup comedian)
|i thought about this yesterday|

|I agree with @7 lot of sore losers get a life and get over it you LOST!! Go Trump just dont let your voters down.|
|are you kidding n2kmaster and clob? there is no way that anything in back to the future was influenced by Facebook. mark suckadick was still sucking on his mommas titties when Back to the Future came out.|
|He won fair and square! All the protesting will not solve the problem. Give the man a chance to see what he can do for the country! Why is that so hard to deal with. George Soros is behind all this B/S.|
|Try to avoid the scandals|
Don't wanna be a bum
You better chew gum
The Trump don't work
'Cause the Senate took the handles.
|Wow, this was not even that biased, mostly just a fun fact, yet so many Trump fans come with the same tired rhetoric to defend him. "cry babies, he won so get over it, go to your safe space, sore losers", way to sound exactly like every single white middle aged troll to ever surf the internet. And that's after eight years of these same guys saying "he's a Muslim, he's not really American, he's the anti-Christ" about Obama. I get that you're sick of your government, I get that Hillary is a terrible person, but if you think you're going to help Trump get accepted as a serious representative of your country by acting like that you need to think again. Because one thing that is way worse than a sore loser is an ungraceful winner, even Trump himself didn't sink that low.||
