Trump International’s response to the existence of “You’ve Been Trumped Too,” director Anthony Baxter’s follow-up to his 2011 documentary “You’ve Been Trumped,” was a lawsuit threat. Baxter’s response to that response is to show his movie for free on Facebook Live tonight at 8 p.m. EST.
“You’ve Trumped Too” follows those affected by Donald Trump’s golf course in Scotland, including a 92-year-old woman named Molly Forbes who claims her water supply was cut off during construction. It received a limited release late last month, and Baxter cites “the bullying” of Trump as his reason for making the film free to watch tonight. The climate-change documentary “Before the Flood” recently employed a similar strategy — albeit for different reasons — and National Geographic says some 30 million people have now seen the film.

“He and the Trump Organization has threatened to take her to court — a 92-year-old woman who Trump says reminds him of his own mother — because of the fact that she is speaking up in the film about how the Trump Organization cut off her water and it hasn’t worked for five years,” Baxter says. “It’s a fact. He may not like it, but that’s what happened.” You can find the stream here once it goes live.
