Democrats are looking for a candidate to take on Donald Trump.
All eyes turned to former President Obama.
And this Barack Obama 2020 decision just changed the race for good.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
The Constitution bars Barack Obama from seeking a third term.
Michelle Obama flat out refuses to run for President.
And Obama’s track record of endorsing a candidate and campaigning on their behalf proved to be a disaster.
But just because Barack and Michelle Obama are limited on how they can directly engage in the campaign to defeat Donald Trump does not mean they lack options.
In fact, the Obamas have one of the most powerful clubs in all of politics resting in their bag: Hollywood.
Last year the Obamas signed a mammoth deal with Netflix to produce films and documentaries for the streaming giant.
The Obama family production company was set to release their first film in 2020 – coincidentally the same year Donald Trump would run for re-election.
“American Factory” is the first documentary from the Obama production company.
And it takes dead aim at undercutting Donald Trump’s support in the industrial Midwest.
The film tells the story of a Chinese billionaire that reopened a GM plant in Ohio only to see their pay cut and working conditions deteriorate.
Donald Trump captured states like Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin by promising to bring back manufacturing and end the globalist trade deals elites like Obama put into place.
These trade deals benefited countries like China and Mexico at the expense of the American middle class.
Good paying jobs that allowed families to live comfortable lives and send their kids to college vanished to foreign countries with cheap labor.
Donald Trump’s message of putting America First by cracking down on illegal immigration and ending global trade deals – both of which create downward pressure on American wages – took hold in the Midwest.
The working class voters in those industrial states formed the backbone of Donald Trump’s winning coalition.
But Barack Obama knows that in politics the attacks that cripple a candidate are the ones that flip a strength into a weakness.
And Ted Johnson – who reviewed “American Factory” for Politico – wrote that the film took dead aim at Donald Trump’s appeal to working class voters in the Midwest.
“The documentary, which debuts on Netflix on August 21, never mentions President Donald Trump by name—but its message is clear: Trump’s promise to reinvigorate the industrial heartland is going to take a lot more than a campaign slogan. There are no easy solutions. And if some manufacturing jobs do come back, they’re going to look nothing like they used to. Americans will have to accept a new reality to stay competitive in the global marketplace—one that they might not like, and one that Trump doesn’t acknowledge,” Johnson explained.
