Steve Bannon’s New Documentary Film Trump @War Launches Free Online Access
Distribution partner Western Journal to stream full-length film worldwide
WASHINGTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trump @War in conjunction with its online distribution partner, The Western Journal, is pleased to announce that the full length HD feature film Trump @War is free and available to viewers worldwide at Trumpmovienow.com.
“The Western Journal does great work and we are happy they are partnering with us,” stated Stephen K. Bannon. “It’s a film that every American, regardless of political belief, should watch. It’s a historic time for our country, and no one should be sitting on the sidelines during the upcoming elections.”
Directed by Bannon and produced by Dan Fleuette, Trump @War is a retelling of the most significant election campaign in modern U.S. history and a look forward to the high-stakes midterm election in November 2018, which will cement President Trump’s legacy.
“Steve Bannon and the team have done it again. This is the most riveting documentary film of 2018. We are honored to be part of the team making it possible for everyone worldwide to watch the film free of charge on any device,” said Patrick Brown, CEO of The Western Journal.
“The recent suppression of conservative content by Big Tech has made this an especially daunting task,” Brown added. “But thanks to our team of technology professionals, sharing this film is as easy as texting or emailing the link to friends and family.”
Trump @War stars Corey Lewandowski, Pete Hegseth, Sebastian Gorka, Raheem Kassam, Sonnie Johnson, Raynard Jackson, Alfredo Ortiz, Dr. Sasha Gong, Erik Prince, Joe Concha, Lianchao Han, Bill Gertz, Michael Caputo, and Rob Wasinger.
“This elections cycle is about the highest stakes possible for our nation,” said Dr. Sebastian Gorka, a former Deputy Assistant to President Trump who appears in Trump @War.
Running on a common-sense platform of America First, a revitalized economy, tax cuts, better trade deals, and a promise to reestablish American sovereignty with immigration reforms, Donald Trump ignited a dormant passion in the hearts of his supporters and won the presidency. It was arguably the most significant election campaign in US modern history. Highlighting the ongoing revolution in American politics, the documentary tells the story of President Trump as a political novice who upended the entrenched political classes in both parties, achieving a stunning victory for the forgotten men and women of the nation.
Gerald Seib, the Washington bureau chief for The Wall Street Journal, wrote recently in a piece entitled “The ‘Deplorables’ Called Into Battle Again”: “As midterms near, President Trump’s former political guru Steve Bannon rallies the troops… it’s an hour and 15 minutes of pure Trumpian adrenaline… and closes with dire warnings of the need to vote for Republicans in 2018 to head off efforts by liberals to impeach the president.”
Bannon and Fleuette also co-wrote and co-produced Clinton Cash, an explosive investigative documentary that helped to expose the Clinton Foundation’s corruption ahead of the 2016 election.
WASHINGTON, Sept. 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — One America News Network (“OAN“) announced today that it will be premiering the documentary “Trump @War” on Wednesday, September 12th during prime time. The documentary, a Stephen K. Bannon film, will be introduced with a 30-minute roundtable discussion led by Steve Bannon. The roundtable discussion airs at 8 pm, with the documentary immediately following.
Trump @War highlights the challenges faced by President Trump and his supporters with political adversaries and the mainstream media as the President fights to fulfill his campaign promises to the American people. Hear from leading political experts about the historic achievements made by President Trump and why the upcoming midterm elections are critical to the direction of our country.
The two-hour prime time block begins at 8 pm ET with Steve Bannon leading a roundtable discussion with political experts examining the challenges faced by President Trump at this pivotal point in our country’s history.
“We’re delighted to premiere this documentary highlighting the achievements by President Trump under the most challenging conditions,” stated Robert Herring, Sr., CEO of One America News Network. “Our country has become highly polarized, making efforts to move our country in any direction difficult.”
“I’m thrilled that One America News is premiering our latest film in prime time,” stated Steve Bannon. “It’s a film that every American, regardless of political belief, should watch. It’s a historic time for our country, and no one should be sitting on the sidelines during the upcoming elections.”
Here’s a first look for Axios readers at the trailer for a forthcoming film, “Trump @ War,” that Steve Bannon will release on Sept. 9.
Why it matters: The film is part of a drive by Bannon to galvanize Republicans to embrace the midterms as Trump’s “first re-elect.”
The film is designed to portray Trump supporters as being under siege — complete with clips of CNN’s Don Lemon, and footage of a “Make America Great Again” hat being burned.
Bannon shared the trailer as he announced a new political group aimed at turning out Republicans this fall, Citizens of the American Republic (COAR).
Bannon, describing the film, told me: “How jacked do we think Trump will be when he sees this?”
Bannon added: “If you’re a deplorable, you’ll literally standing on your chair with your pitchfork saying: ‘I’ve got to get people out to vote.'”
Bannon said the film — from his longtime production company, Victory Films — will last about 75 minutes, and will include interviews with former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski; Dr. Seb Gorka, an alumnus of Trump’s White House; and about 18 others.
The release date, Sept. 9, is the second anniversary of Hillary Clinton’s statement, seized on by the Trump campaign, that “you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”
Bannon — President Trump’s former campaign chief executive, and White House chief strategist — said the premiere will be the culmination of an all-day “Deplorables Conference” in New York featuring pro-Trump speeches.
A read between the frames:
Everything is a war to Steve. Bannon’s caricatured framing of the election — as one pitting hooded Antifa members and Dems screaming about impeachment and burning MAGA hats, against the hero Donald Trump — will almost certainly appeal to Donald Trump.
But I’ll be shocked if the president can get past his animus towards Bannon and endorse or promote his latest effort.
Whenever I mention Bannon’s name to a White House official or Republican leadership sources, they still roll their eyes.
And when it comes to midterm politics, they like to mention, derisively, his scorched earth campaign on behalf of an accused pedophile, Roy Moore. I’ll be surprised if Bannon becomes a magnet for serious donor money for the fall. But this is a country full of quixotic billionaires, so who the heck knows.
Trump still hates “Sloppy Steve” and thinks he tries to steal his limelight. So Bannon was smart to recruit some of Trump’s favorite diehards.
Bannon said his new group is aimed at stoking the “populist-nationalist movement” that put Trump into office, and includes booking, messaging and rapid-response operations that regularly brief friendly cable-news pundits.
“The war room is up and running,” Bannon bragged, saying Citizens of the American Republican will focus on the triumvirate of ideas, communication and action.
“When I got involved [with the Trump presidential campaign] in August 2016, Trump was down 12, 14, 16 points. Democrats thought I was a clown. They never took him seriously. We caught them napping. We can do it again.”
The effort to hold the House for Republicans “is more winnable” than Trump’s campaign was three months before Election Day, Bannon contends.
“I think we can hold this to a net loss [for Republicans] of under 15 seats.” (Democrats need to flip 23 seats to take House; top Republicans fear losses of 40 or more seats.)
“All the whining I hear among establishment Republicans, all the whining I hear in the official corridors of the Republican Party, has got to stop.”
