The Trump campaign spokesperson has condemned the film “The Apprentice”, calling it pure fiction that sensationalizes lies about the former president’s rise to fame. It has been stated that a lawsuit will be filed against the filmmakers for their blatantly false assertions. The movie debuted at the Cannes Film Festival and portrays Donald Trump’s ascent to prominence in New York high society during the 1970s and 1980s. One of the most controversial scenes in the film depicts Trump violently raping his late ex-wife, Ivana.

Ivana Trump, who passed away in July 2022, had alleged a sexual assault in her 1989 divorce deposition but later retracted her statement more than 25 years later. She denounced the film and labeled it as pure malicious defamation that does not deserve to see the light of day. The Trump campaign spokesperson emphasized that the movie should not even be placed in the straight-to-DVD section of a bargain bin, as it belongs in a dumpster fire. The timing of the movie’s premiere, less than six months before the upcoming election, has been seen as election interference by Hollywood elites.

The distribution rights for “The Apprentice” in the US have not yet been sold, and the film features Sebastian Stan as young Donald Trump and Maria Bakalova as Ivana. Jeremy Strong plays a significant role as Roy Cohn, Trump’s former lawyer and fixer. One of the film’s investors, billionaire Dan Snyder, was reportedly displeased with how the movie portrayed Trump, as he was expecting a more flattering depiction of the former president. The film has created controversy due to its portrayal of Trump’s alleged actions and relationship with Ivana.

The Trump campaign adviser has criticized the movie as a work of fiction that should not be taken seriously. The spokesperson argued that the timing of the film’s release, just ahead of the election, is an attempt at election interference by those who oppose Trump. The campaign’s stance is that the movie is part of a larger effort by Hollywood elites to influence the outcome of the election in favor of their candidate of choice, despite Trump’s chances of reclaiming the White House.

The lawsuit against the filmmakers is being pursued to address the false narrative presented in the movie about Trump’s past. The campaign believes that the film misrepresents the former president and distorts the truth about his life and actions. The controversy surrounding “The Apprentice” and its portrayal of Trump highlights the ongoing political divisions and tensions within American society. The film’s depiction of Trump and his relationships has sparked outrage and condemnation from those close to the former president, further fueling the debate over his legacy and impact on American culture.
