Michael Moore Calls Trump the Last POTUS in ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ Documentary

"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.

Provided exclusively to the Huffington Post and then posted online Thursday morning, the first trailer of Michael Moore's upcoming film "Fahrenheit 11/9" reveals the filmmaker's attempt at making sense of the rise and reign of President Donald Trump. The title refers to the date when Trump became president-elect of the United States, and following the news that this movie will play at the Toronto International Film Festival, the first trailer has arrived. Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states.

In the new film, Moore appears to try and make sense of the seething national rage that propelled Donald Trump to power.

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore warned.

The trailer shows clips of interviews with activists, politicians and former members of Trump's 2016 campaign, including Parkland shooting survivors David Hogg and Emma González, Democratic House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and former Trump campaign adviser Roger Stone.

"Moore told HuffPost that he hopes the film exposes the "grave danger" posed by Trump". This puts us all in grave danger.

Fahrenheit 11/9 lands in theaters September 21.

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".

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.
