Over $80,600 has been raised as part of an effort to get an upcoming pro-Trump documentary featuring remarks from conservative evangelical leaders into as many as 1,500 theatres this fall.
Organizers for the new Resurrection Pictures film “Trump 2024” have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to distribute the documentary, which has been in the works for over two years. The film aims to encourage Americans to imagine what path the world could be headed down if Trump is not reelected in November.
The documentary features commentary from evangelical leaders such as evangelist Franklin Graham, Samuel Rodriguez, Mike Huckabee, Robert Jeffress, Tony Perkins, Paula White, Jack Graham and Jack Hibbs, along with conservative voices like Star Parker, Dennis Prager, Brigitte Gabriel and Eric Metaxas.
“He offended just about everybody when he was running in 2016, but his offensiveness was just brutal honesty,” Graham, president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and son of the late Billy Graham, was quoted as saying on the Kickstarter campaign. “If he doesn’t like you, he’ll tell you he doesn’t like you. He’s a unique person, but the media hates him because he speaks the truth — and they don’t know how to handle the truth.”
The movie is produced by physician and filmmaker William Harrity, who says he founded Resurrection Films as the world’s first Christian nonprofit film distribution company.
“He called me about a year-and-a-half ago and said he raised some money to do a documentary on Donald Trump to not only show a side of Donald Trump that the secular media wouldn’t show, but he said there are some interesting prophetic elements about Trump,” co-producer Paul Crouch Jr. told The Christian Post in an interview this week.
“So we wanted to look into that and create something that was interesting and entertaining, and to reconnect Christians and evangelicals with Trump based on biblical values.”
The film features testimony from Trump supporter Mike Lindell, the founder of MyPillow, and Alveda King, a pro-life advocate and niece of Martin Luther King Jr.
The documentary’s fundraising effort comes just weeks after a group of 30 evangelical figures released a book calling on white evangelicals to rethink their support for Trump in 2020 and question whether the entirety of Trump’s policies and his actions line up with biblical values. In 2016, exits polls showed that eight out of 10 white evangelicals voted for Trump.
Crouch told CP that part of the film focuses on the leftward push toward “socialism” and how Trump has vowed to stand against that push. He said the biblical prophecies tied to socialism and the “one-world government” will be only a “minor” theme of the film.
