'Da 5 Bloods' interview: Spike Lee and Delroy Lindo on the challenge of playing a Trump supporter

The war never ended for the Vietnam War vets in Spike Lee's Da 5 Bloods, and one of them has been uniquely affected. Here, Delroy Lindo and Spike Lee discuss the challenge of getting into the mindset of a MAGA hat-wearing Trump supporter. Da 5 Bloods releases globally on Netflix on 12 June. From Academy Award® Winner Spike Lee comes a New Joint: the story of four African-American Vets — Paul (Delroy Lindo), Otis (Clarke Peters), Eddie (Norm Lewis), and Melvin (Isiah Whitlock, Jr.) — who return to Vietnam. Searching for the remains of their fallen Squad Leader (Chadwick Boseman) and the promise of buried treasure, our heroes, joined by Paul's concerned son (Jonathan Majors), battle forces of Man and Nature — while confronted by the lasting ravages of The Immorality of The Vietnam War.
