Filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza has released a trailer for his upcoming film, Death of a Nation, which argues President Trump is facing the kind of fierce opposition that confronted Abraham Lincoln at another seminal moment in America’s history.
Produced by Gerald Molen, the Oscar-winning producer of Schindler’s List and Jurassic Park, the film debuts Aug. 3 in 1,000 theaters.
“Lincoln was elected to unite a country and stop slavery. Democrats smeared him; went to war against him; assassinated him. Now, their target is Trump,” “Souza says in the trailer.
It’s his fourth documentary after the success of 2016: Obama’s America, America: Imagine a World Without Her and Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party.
“Lincoln saved America the first time. It’s now up to us to save it a second time,” D’Souza says the end of the trailer.
He told the Hollywood Reporter that the movie addresses the hot-button issues of racism and fascism.
“Look at the timeliness of this with the immigration debate, where Trump is being called a ‘Nazi,’ ‘fascist’ and ‘racist,’” he said. “This tells me that people don’t have a clue, not only about the history of fascism and racism, but where it exists today.”
One month ago, President Trump granted a pardon to D’Souza, who was prosecuted for arranging “straw donors” to contribute to the unsuccessful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign of a college friend. D’Souza admitted his guilt, however, noting the case “came on the heels of the movie about Obama,” he asserted the prosecution was politically motivated.
His producer, Molen said at the time it was “the equivalent of prosecuting a political dissident in the Soviet Union for jaywalking.”
