Filmmaker Michael Moore was turned away by the Secret Service on Saturday as he tried to make an unexpected visit to President-elect Donald Trump in New York.

Moore called Trump an "illegitimate president" as he entered the Trump Tower skyscraper in midtown, which serves as the primary residence of the incoming president. He was stopped by security on the fourth floor, ABC News reported.

As he entered the building Moore had told reporters the president-elect "does not have the vote of the people" because the Trump won in the electoral college, but not the popular vote.

Just before reaching the fourth floor, he conceded: "I didn’t think I'd get this far."

Moore had asked for a meeting with Trump, but was told by a Secret Service agent: "You'd have to check with his staff," ABC News said.

USA Today reported Moore was wearing a red San Francisco 49ers hat and carrying a smartphone to film a Facebook Live broadcast, the newspaper 

Moore, who had publicly predicted Trump would win, left a note with the doorman for Trump.

"Mr. Trump I'm here. I want to talk to you," the note read, according to the newspaper.
