Coincidences can come in all shapes and sizes but they never fail to shock and surprise us but rarely are they as eerie as this recently unearthed clip which appears to predict Donald Trump's border wall way back in 1958.

An episode of the western TV show Trackdown has gone viral as it features a conman called Walter Trump who is trying to convince a small town that they need to have a wall built around it that will prevent the apocalypse.

People begin to believe Trump's wild claims, thanks to a convincing rally but he is eventually exposed as a conman and arrested before being shot and presumed dead. The episode was called 'The End of the World.'

The synopsis for the episode reads as follows:

Walter Trump, a confidence man, puts on a long robe and holds a tent meeting in the town of Talpa.

He tells the townspeople that a cosmic explosion will rain fire on the town and that he is the only one that can save them from death.

Ranger Hoby Gilman attempts to prove Trump is a fraud.

There is obviously no way that the producers of the show, which used to air on CBS, could have known what was to come but there is something weirdly unsettling about just how accurate this video is, especially given the current controversy surrounding the proposed border wall with Mexico.

According to Snopes, the video was first shared in November 2016, around the time of Trump's election victory but has recently been picked up by several Twitter accounts who have pointed out the spooky similarities to the present.

Reaction to this discovery has been that of shock and disbelief.

Even James Cordon, of all people, couldn't believe it.

Some folks now believe that it is undeniable proof that time travel exists.

U2 even used footage of the episode during their 2017 Joshua Tree tour.

A full version of the episode was uploaded to YouTube in January 2017.
