Michael Moore: Trump is the 'Last President of the United States'

Fahrenheit 11/9: first trailer for Michael Moore's Trump documentary

Fahrenheit 11/9 is expected to be a pseudo-sequel to Fahrenheit 9/11, the popular Moore documentary that examined the impact of George W. Bush presidency's on the world. It also sees Moore ominously refer to Trump as "the last president of the United States". 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.

In an interview with HuffPost, Michael Moore said that Trump "has no intention of leaving the White House" and that the Republican party will be "backing him up" all the way.

This is actually Moore's second Trump-related documentary over the past two years. "That all ends with this movie".

Based on the trailer, the Oscar-winning Moore will tackle everything from the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, gun ownership, and the rise of young gun-control activists David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez to the ongoing water crisis in his hometown of Flint, Michigan, and those standing opposed to Trump. The doc, a sort of sequel to Moore's anti-W film Fahrenheit 9/11 is set to hit theaters September 21, a date chosen by Moore to spread the anti-Trump word before the mid-term elections.

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. "Our media has no idea what it is up against", he continued.

"Moore told HuffPost that he hopes the film exposes the "grave danger" posed by Trump".

Moore has previously said Trump will win the next presidential election in 2020 but speaking to chat show host Bill Maher in June, he said: "I'm finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls".
