Michael Moore: Trump Has an 'Excellent Chance'

There is an "excellent chance" that Donald Trump will become the next president of the United States, and Americans "need to take that very seriously," controversial filmmaker Michael Moore said Thursday.

"He knows how to manipulate a dumbed-down population," Moore, who has backed Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign, said during a press conference in London while promoting his latest film, "Where to Invade Next," reports NBC News.

Moore went on to comment that in the United States, "the population of schools has been wrecked, and the news media is just insipid and stupid and doesn't give the people the facts about what's going on."

As a result, he continued, the public is "easily manipulated" by someone like Trump.

"He's not as stupid as he looks," Moore said of Trump. "You should take it very seriously He knows the manipulation that's going on here, and the use of propaganda and the way he's doing it is just brilliant in the way that he is succeeding and has succeeded."

Also during the press conference, Moore said the pending EU referendum, which calls for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union, is much like the United States' presidential election, and those who support the move are like Trump's supporters, as they are aggressive for their cause and more likely to vote for separation, reports The Guardian.  

He also referred to Great Britain as a "toxic place" whose leader, Tony Blair, supported former President George W. Bush in the Iraq war.

Meanwhile, Moore ridiculed Trump in a video interview with The Guardian's Owen Moore, saying that his calls for a wall at the Mexican border make him sound like the cries of "dying dinosaurs."


He further predicted to Moore that if Trump wins, many Americans will be moving to Canada, and "that's why I predict the Canadians are going to start strengthening their immigration laws."

Moore's latest movie has him visiting several countries in the European Union, including Finland, Italy, and France, looking for positive aspects to take back to the United States. He said in the press conference he skipped the United Kingdom because "we didn't feel like there was anything left to learn here. And that you had given up on yourselves.”
