During an appearance on “The View” on Friday, filmmaker Michael Moore questioned whether or not the United States would still be a democracy by the time the next presidential election rolls around in two years.


Moore was on the show to promote his new anti-Trump movie, “Fahrenheit 11/9.”

He and the hosts of the show were discussing possible 2020 Democratic candidates that could take on President Trump.

He said, “But if the Democrats, and I’m guessing they will, just put up another same old same old, tired, uninspiring, let’s not go too far, let’s just have half health care [candidate], the honest answer to that is, I don’t even know if we’re going to get to 2020 as a democracy. I don’t even know.”(RELATED: Michael Moore: ‘It’s Possible’ Trump Is The Last U.S. President Ever)

Joy Behar then joked that seeing Moore’s new movie will make you want to “kill yourself.”

Earlier this week, in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, he doubled down on a scene in his new movie, which labeled President Trump as “the last president of the United States.” (RELATED: Michael Moore Steals Microphone Away From David Hogg After He Calls On Canadians To Illegally Interfere In Upcoming Elections)
