"Fahrenheit 11/9"'s release comes just ahead of the US mid-term elections, with Moore looking to spread anti-Trump messaging and insight into his politics.
The first trailer for Michael Moore's Donald Trump documentary Fahrenheit 11/9 has been released, promising an incendiary look at modern life in America. He later introduces Trump as "the last president of the United States" as a shot of Trump flashing a menacing glance at the camera appears onscreen. "He has no intention of leaving the White House", Moore told the far-left news outlet.
This is actually Moore's second Trump-related documentary over the past two years.
The trailer, released by HuffPost on Thursday, shows Moore and some of the prominent public figures of the Trump era: Parkland, Fla., shooting survivors David Hogg and Emma González; former Trump campaign adviser Roger StoneRoger Jason StoneIntentionally deceiving voters should be a crime 'Manhattan Madam' to testify before Mueller grand jury: report Crystal ball time: Where are we headed politically?
Moore released the footage Thursday, six weeks before the documentary hits theaters on September 21. "That all ends with this movie".
Given how so much of Donald Trump's presidency is being played out on screens and online, it seems nearly pointless at this stage to have a documentary on him when the story hasn't even finished playing itself out yet.
"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore said about the documentary.
"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out", Moore said".
Moore also described Trump as "the last president of the United States".
Fahrenheit 11/9 refers to the day that Trump was officially announced as the next USA president, and the title seems to liken his election to have had as much of an impact on the country as the September 11 attacks did.
