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

In the first trailer for Fahrenheit 11/9, Moore grapples with significant issues like gun control and the complacency of the American people.

Fahrenheit 11/9 hits theaters on September 21, 2018.

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. "That all ends with this movie". 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.

Filming on Moore's new Trump documentary has been done under a strict cloak of secrecy.

Throughout the trailer, there are snippets that show the wide range of topics that will be covered in the documentary, including the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, the emboldening of white nationalists, an increase in toxic nationalism, as well as NY congressional democratic primary victor Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

"Fuck hope. Seriously, fuck hope", Moore declared. 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.

Moore's controversial 2004 documentary "Farenheit 9/11", which explored former President George W. Bush's War on Terror, is the highest-grossing documentary of all time. Moore won the Academy Award for best documentary for his 2002 film "Bowling for Columbine". And even if it does contain some massive revelation, Moore himself said it right there: by now Trump has built his entire presidency on statements that would have gotten anyone else kicked out of Washington, so why would we ever believe that he'll get taken down by a documentary? "Hope, and the passivity that comes with it, is what helped get us here to begin with".
