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.” In June of 2016, Michael Moore famously and publicly predicted that Trump would indeed win the White House in November by winning the states of Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania. Trump won the presidency by just 77,000 combined votes from those three states. Fahrenheit ‪11/9 will be presented with the mix of outrage and mischievous humor that has made Moore the most successful documentary filmmaker in the world. To make the Trump documentary, Moore has reunited with his acclaimed team from Fahrenheit ‪9/11, Oscar-nominated documentary directors/producers Meghan O’Hara, Tia Lessin and Carl Deal.
