Michael Moore Says He’ll Flee to Canada to Escape Trump’s ‘Persecution’

Filmmaker Michael Moore says he’ll flee to Canada as a political refugee if President Trump decides to persecute him for his new documentary, Fahrenheit 11/9, which takes aim at Trump’s election.

Speaking to media at the Toronto Film Festival, Moore said that “we’re in a bad place. We’re on the precipice of some very awful stuff.” He also played up Trump’s interest in the film and suggested he could find himself under political persecution because of it. Trump “absolutely hates democracy, and he believes in the autocrat, in the authoritarian,” Moore said.
