Moore turns up the heat on Trump in Fahrenheit 11/9 trailer

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.

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

Polemical documentary film maker Michael Moore has unveiled the first trailer for his new film Fahrenheit 11/9, a new broadside which charts the rise of Donald Trump from reality show host to office of United States president and his subsequent rule.

In the trailer for "Fahrenheit 11/9", a reference to the first day after the president's election win, he poses the question: "How the f**k did this happen?"

Fahrenheit 11/9 will release on September 21. "That all ends with this movie".

"American journalism schools have not trained students how to cover an authoritarian leader", Moore told HuffPost. This puts us all in grave danger. The date refers to when Trump was declared victor of the 2016 election: November 9th.

Flint, Michigan's man-made, lead-poisoned water crisis began in 2014 and resulted in strict regulations being enacted at a state level in 2018, with the water's lead levels finally dropping below federal safety levels in 2017.

14 years after its release, Fahrenheit 9/11 is still the highest grossing documentary of all time, having taken $222m worldwide. He emphasizes that having "hope" alone is passive, saying our nation should not rely on this to solve our problems. Hope leads people to believe that tax returns, or a pee tape, or the Federal Bureau of Investigation or an adult film star will save the country. "Hope gives you permission to let someone else do the work". World Premiere of our film, "Fahrenheit 11/9", will be Opening Night @ the Toronto Film Festival! Wow!
