Moore correctly predicted that Trump would win the White House by scoring the states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. But months before that infamous night, Moore had already begun ruminating on what could be done to stop the, according to him, "carnage Trump would inflict while president".

His latest documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, promises to be his most scathing attack on Donnie yet. "I'm finishing my movie and getting it out before the midterms because I want millions of people to get to the polls", he said. "Once we come together in attractive harmony, the Trump crime family will be prosecuted, law and order will be restored, we'll have Medicare for All".

Fahrenheit 11/9 will showcase a detailed look at the 2016 United States presidential election, and Donald Trump's first year of presidency.

Tribune Withdraws From Sinclair Merger Amid Scrutiny Over Deal
The owner of WGN-Ch.9 and dozens of other television stations, Tribune Media remains an acquisition target. In addition, Tribune said , Sinclair outright refused to sell station in some markets.

Since Trump won the election, the Oscar-winning documentarian has referred to the president a "traitor" who should be arrested and tweeted that his presidency is a "total bomb" that will "close early" (with the help of his 10-point plan).

In the trailer, Moore also hoses down Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder's lawn with water he says is from Flint, a city that made headlines for the unsafe amounts of lead in its water sources. The old guard of the Democratic Party has failed to speak to them. "I will at least give them a song they can belt out". It was originally set to be released with the Weinstein Company before Harvey Weinstein was hit with multiple allegations of sexual assault. We don't need hope. "No matter what you throw at him, it hasn't worked", says Moore.

"If nothing else, I hope this film exposes that grave danger and shows people the way out", Moore said. He's taking a much bigger perspective on American politics", Thom Powers, the docs programmer for the Toronto International Film Festival, where Moore will premiere the film, told the Los Angeles Times.
