Having been held back by legal threats from the Trump Organisation for the past four years, You’ve Been Trumped Too has been picked up for release, and will arrive less than three months before the 2020 US election.
The documentary explores the “deeply troubling” confrontation between Trump and 96-year-old Scottish widow Molly Forbes half a decade after it’s discovered that the president’s workers shut off her family’s water supply while constructing a luxury golf resort near Aberdeen.
While investigating the case, director Anthony Baxter was arrested and put in jail, but the charges against him were thrown out. Police were then forced to issue him an apology.
However, though these threats undermined the film’s initial release, it was found the actual legal arguments were baseless, as Baxter’s documentary was carefully vetted for libel and fair use by leading law firms in both the US and UK.
Now, thanks to Journeyman Pictures, the film will be released worldwide on iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, Journeyman VOD and Vimeo on 18 August, just under three months before the next election.
