Director Ali Abbasi Offers To Screen ‘The Apprentice’ For Trump Amid Lawsuit Threat

Despite the Trump campaign’s threat to sue over the film, “The Apprentice,” which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on Monday, director Ali Abbasi has offered to privately screen the movie for the former U.S. president and discuss it with him.

In what is the obvious beginning of Hollywood and the media’s push to smear President Donald Trump just before the 2024 elections, the propagandists on the left have inserted themselves again into politics in what will certainly become a pushed and celebrated slander against the top contender who just scheduled a couple of debates with the current man in the White House.

“I don’t necessarily think that this is a movie he would dislike,” Abbasi told reporters at the film’s press conference on Tuesday. “I would offer to go and meet him wherever he wants and talk about the context of the movie, have a screening and have a chat afterwards, if that’s interesting to anyone at the Trump campaign.”

The offer is clearly disingenuous, as Abbasi is aware that Trump would “necessarily” dislike it.

“The Apprentice,” which is labeled as inspired by true events, portrays Trump’s early years in the 1980s and his relationship with defense attorney Roy Cohn in what is clearly a slanderous and left-leaning take.

The truly disgusting film even contains a scene depicting Trump sexually assaulting his then-wife Ivana Trump.

Abbasi addressed the Cannes audience after the premiere, warning of the rise of fascism and the need for filmmakers to make movies political again. “In the time of turmoil, there’s this tendency to look inwards, to bury your head deep in the sand, look inside and hope for the best,” he said. “But the storm is not going to get away. The storm is coming. The worst times are coming.”
