With just hours before 538 electors cast their offical vote for the next President of the United States, critics of Donald Trump are doing all they can to prevent him from taking office. For filmmaker Michael Moore, he's even willing to dig into his own pockets to seal the deal.

Moore's money

The 2016 presidential election exposed just how politically divided the United States and the American people really are. After eight years of back and forth fighting between Democrats and Republicans under an Obama administration, Donald Trump took partisanship to a new level.

It became commonplace for violence to break out during Trump campaign rallies, as liberals shifted to the left, conservatives moved to the right, and hoards of angry citizens appeared ready to throw the towel in on politics in general. As the push to convince electors to ditch Trump and prevent his victory continues, Michael Moore is now willing to pay any fine that they get hit with, as expressed on his offical Twitter account on December 18.

"Republican Electors -- If you vote your conscience at noon and your state fines you for this, I will pay your fine," Michael Moore tweeted late Sunday night.

Attached to his tweet was a link to his latest Facebook post, an open letter and "personal appeal" to Republican electors that are getting ready to vote for Donald Trump as the 45th commander in chief in United States history.

Michael Moore makes his case for why the former host of "The Apprentice" should not be able to make it to the White House and serve the country in the highest office in the land. From ignoring important intelligence briefings detrimental to the national security of the country, to his reported ties to Russia, the award-winning documentary filmmaker is doing everything he can to stop Trump from taking office.

In his post, Moore even elaborates further on paying fines that electors might receive, writing, "If you do vote your conscience and you are punished for it, I will personally step up pay your fine which is my legal right to do."

Moving forward

If all goes as expected, Donald Trump will officially receive more than the 270 votes needed, and will be on his way to be sworn in on Inauguration Day.

While this is the most likely scenario, Michael Moore and tens of thousands of other Trump critics are already planning multiple protests to take place in Washington, D.C. on January 20.
