Barack Obama’s new plan to defeat Donald Trump has everyone talking treason
There is no question Barack Obama wants to see Donald Trump defeated in 2020.
The only question is how far the former president is willing to go to see that dream come true.
And now Barack Obama’s new plan to defeat Donald Trump has everyone talking treason.
The Obamas cashed in on their fame after leaving the White House by signing a mega deal with streaming giant Netflix to produce films and documentaries.
And of course the Obamas could not pass up the opportunity to use Hollywood to try to take out President Trump.
The first film from Obama’s production company – “American Factory” – takes dead aim at Donald Trump’s core contention that China wants to replace the United States as the words sole superpower through economic competition and globalization.
American Factory tells the story of a Chinese billionaire reopening a GM plant in Ohio.
This is “reverse globalization,” say Oscar-nominated directors Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert, who filmed the GM plant’s closure in 2008 and returned to chronicle its reopening by Fuyao corporation for the documentary “American Factory.”
The film charts a Midwestern rust belt community’s journey from optimism at the giant plant’s reopening — bringing back vital jobs — toward creeping anger and disillusionment as the Chinese management imposes its strict, exhausting demands on workers and sacks those who don’t comply.
The all-access look at how both American and Chinese workers, from blue-collar to management, had their lives transformed by powerful global economic forces caught the eyes of none other than Barack and Michelle Obama.
The former first couple acquired “American Factory” at January’s Sundance Festival, and will release it on Netflix and in select theaters from August 21 as the first offering from their Higher Ground Productions company.
There was no bigger proponent of globalization over the last decade than Barack Obama.
But the backlash to Obama putting the interests of countries like China ahead of the United States directly led to the election of Donald Trump.
That’s why Obama is so determined to undercut President Trump on that front as he runs for re-election in 2020.
And Obama is using Hollywood movies as his weapon of choice in this fight.
