“Our goal is to have as many Americans see this over the next five or 10 days,” he added.

The live performance film — which sees Moore speaking about the two candidates onstage, and supposing what would happen if each were to become the next US president — was shot less than two weeks ago over two consecutive nights at a venue in Wilmington, Ohio.

Since the film was announced, a handful of theatres have called to screen over the next two weeks before the election next month.

“We will hopefully have an announcement on that over the next 24 to 36 hours. It’s all coming together in a very rapid-fire way. Lots of people have been contacting us to see how they can help us,” said Moore, adding that the film will soon be available on VOD as well.

The movie also includes an imagined news segment that covers what would happen if Trump wins.

Moore explained that he made the documentary because Democrats should not strategize for their presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s victory by solely scaring people off Trump, as support for Clinton is not necessarily locked-in. (IANS)

With a motive to protect US communications network from “foreign adversaries”, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency on Wednesday.

The executive order gives the federal government powers to restrict US companies from doing business transactions with certain foreign tech suppliers “posing an unacceptable risk to the national security”, said White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders in a statement.

According to the statement, Trump signed the executive order as “part of his commitment to protecting the information and communications technology and services” of the US.

“The President has made it clear that this Administration will do what it takes to keep America safe and prosperous, and to protect America from foreign adversaries who are actively and increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in information and communications technology infrastructure and services in the United States,” said the White House statement.

“This Executive Order declares a national emergency with respect to the threats against information and communications technology and services in the United States and delegates authority to the Secretary of Commerce to prohibit transactions posing an unacceptable risk to the national security,’ it added.

If reports are to be believed, Trump’s order is directed at Chinese telecom major Huawei. US believes that Huawei’s equipment could be used by China for surveillance.
