Fahrenheit 11/9 Trailer: Michael Moore Explores America Under Trump

It will explore the two most important questions of the Trump Era: How the f**k did we get here, and how the f**k do we get out?

The doc, which will hold its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September, is a sort-of sequel to his 2004 film "Fahrenheit 9/11", which took aim at then-U.S. president George W. Bush's use of the September 11 attacks to push his agenda for a war against Iraq.

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. 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. His new documentary's title is a reference to that film and the day after Trump was voted into office: November 9, 2016. "That all ends with this movie".

To call Michael Moore one of Donald Trump's most outspoken critics is an understatement.

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader". "Our media has no idea what it is up against". Rick Snyder might also make an appearance since Moore previewed a clip of himself spraying lead-contaminated water from Flint, Michigan on the governor's front lawn. This puts us all in grave danger.

"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out", he added.

In his conclusion, Trump indicated to the news outlet that another of the film's underlying messages will be that it will organized action, not hope, that will be crucial in defeating Trump.

Fahrenheit 11/9 refers to the day that Trump was officially announced as the next US 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.
