Michael Moore calls Donald Trump ‘the last president’ in ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ trailer

Michael Moore calls Donald Trump ‘the last president’ in ‘Fahrenheit 11/9’ trailer

Still, Michael Moore's brazenly antagonistic and confrontational style is probably just the thing needed for these times and if this first trailer is anything to go by, he's not even close to pulling his punches.

Moore, who is known for his antagonistic style, calls Trump the "last president of the United States" and follows his election campaign in 2016, his first year in office, and how Trump's victory has led to division and confrontation in the U.S. over issues of immigration, the far right, fake news, and white supremacy. 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 terms of calling Trump America's last president, Moore recently spoke to HuffPost about the film, and he said Trump "has no intention of leaving the White House". His new documentary's title is a reference to that film and the day after Trump was voted into office: November 9, 2016.

Fahrenheit 11/9 lands in theaters September 21. "That all ends with this movie".

Many of Moore's prior movies caused a stir, but that was before the omnipresence of social media, Since we're all constantly drowning in the never-ending news cycle of Trump's latest idiotic statement or decision, I'm not sure how effective this film can be.

He also added that journalism schools do not teach students how to handle an "authoritarian leader" and hopes that this film shows viewers the "danger" of President Trump where the execution of their jobs is concerned. They're getting steamrolled by a tyrant because Trump understands media and understands the country he lives in more than those that cover him do.

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.
