“I don’t necessarily think it’s a movie that (Trump) would dislike, I don’t necessarily think he would like it, I think he would be surprised,” said Danish director Ali Abbasi, born in Iran, at a press conference at the event. However, after the premiere, a Trump campaign spokesperson said he would file a lawsuit against the film over the “blatantly false claims made by these so-called filmmakers.”

This garbage is pure fiction that makes a scandal of lies that have long since been denied,” explained the Trump team’s communications director, Steven Cheung.

“Trump’s team should see the movie before they start suing us, because I think once you’re in the character, it feels different, and we’re in that character,” responded the film’s director.
