In less than a month, Donald Trump will officially be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. While Trump supporters are thrilled, millions of Americans around the country are still stunned at the election results, including filmmaker Michael Moore.

Moore on Trump

In the days leading up the the 2016 presidential election, the consensus was that Hillary Clinton would become the first female commander in chief in American history. Nearly all of mainstream media and the majority of the pollsters predicted a Clinton win so large that the Democrats were also expected to regain control of the Senate.

After Trump's victory, Democrats and liberals were caught off guard, leaving them in a state of panic, which continues until present day. One liberal voice that warned of a possible Donald Trump victory was Michael Moore, who revealed his Christmas wish on his offical Facebook page on December 24.

"Tonight it's Christmas Eve, it's Hanukkah, it's a month before the words 'Muslim registry' will find their way into an actual law," Michael Moore wrote, before predicting that atheists will likely "save us because they believe in science, facts and humanity." "We know the wall of hate in front of us is going to seem insurmountable.

It is not," he continued, comparing the recent political negativity coming from Donald Trump and his supporters to "falsehoods" promoted by "The South, the Germans or Roger Ailes."

While Michael Moore was not shy about Republicans controlling all of Congress and the White House, the award-winning filmmaker was optimistic at the pressure liberals can put on the Republican Party. "We ARE the majority (by nearly three million votes!) and we have MANY tools available to us (mass protest, civil disobedience, lawsuits, social media, old media, and just plain showing up)," he noted.

"I will continue to post things you can do where you live. The only way this will work is if everyone commits, right now, to doing something, anything, in the coming year," Michael Moore pointed out, while adding, "That can be our Christmas/Hanukkah/Muslim registry gift to each other - I'm in, you're in, we're all in." Moore's Christmas wish for all Americans to stay vigilant is something many on the political left have been screaming for, but it's not likely to play well with conservatives.

As Christmas and the rest of the holidays arrive, Donald Trump is preparing to become the next president on Inauguration Day. Despite this, Michael Moore and nearly 100,000 protesters are planning to attend, and will take to the streets in Washington, D.C. to voice their opposition to the president-elect.
