Liberal filmmaker Michael Moore said he expects Donald Trump to be elected president and listed five reasons why the GOP nominee will win in November.
"This wretched, ignorant, dangerous part-time clown and full time sociopath is going to be our next president. President TrumpDonald TrumpMcAuliffe takes tougher stance on Democrats in Washington Democrats troll Trump over Virginia governor's race Tom Glavine, Ric Flair, Doug Flutie to join Trump for Herschel Walker event MORE. Go ahead and say the words, ‘cause you’ll be saying them for the next four years: 'PRESIDENT TRUMP,'" he wrote on his website.
Moore said people need to face the fact that Trump will be the next president.
He said Trump would likely focus on four blue states in the Rust Belt: Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The four states have each elected a Republican governor since 2010, and Trump is polling ahead of Democrat Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonTrump criticizes Justice for restoring McCabe's benefits Biden sends 'best wishes' to Clinton following hospitalization The Hill's Morning Report - Presented by Altria - Jan. 6 panel flexes its muscle MORE in Pennsylvania and tied with her in Ohio.
"Trump is going to hammer Clinton on this and her support of TPP and other trade policies that have royally screwed the people of these four states," he wrote, referencing the Trans-Pacific Partnership.
He said the citizens of those states were "broken, depressed, struggling."
His called his second reason "The Last Stand of the Angry White Man."
"Our male-dominated, 240-year run of the USA is coming to an end. A woman is about to take over! How did this happen?! On our watch! There were warning signs, but we ignored them," he wrote.
He said this gives men the sense that the "power has slipped out of their hands, that their way of doing things is no longer how things are done."
His also said that Clinton is viewed as dishonest and untrustworthy, making it more difficult for her to get elected.
"The enthusiasm just isn’t there. And because this election is going to come down to just one thing — who drags the most people out of the house and gets them to the polls — Trump right now is in the catbird seat," he wrote.
Moore then focused on former supporters of Bernie SandersBernie SandersPressure grows for breakthrough in Biden agenda talks Sanders, Manchin escalate fight over .5T spending bill Sanders blames media for Americans not knowing details of Biden spending plan MORE. He predicted some Sanders supporters would reluctantly vote for Clinton but others would either stay home on Election Day or vote for a third party candidate.
Moore said the last reason Trump would win is that millions of people would vote for him "just because they can."
"Just because it will upset the apple cart and make mommy and daddy mad," he wrote.
