Trump’s words are superimposed over videos of Hitler speaking at a rally at one point during the film, comparing how strong men rise to positions of power, Reuters said.

Moore spoke with reporters before the world premiere of his film to a sold-out audience at the Toronto International Film Festival.

He said he needed to explore the question of “how the hell we got in this mess and how do we get out of it.”

“[Trump has] been around for a long time and we’ve behaved in a certain way for a long time and when you look back now you can see how the road was paved for him,” Moore told reporters.

Moore's controversial 2004 documentary "Farenheit 9/11," which explored former President George W. Bush's War on Terror, is the highest-grossing documentary of all time.
