Trump says he will sue the filmmakers behind ‘The Apprentice’ movie for including ‘blatantly false assertions’.  A betting market was established Tuesday afternoon, May 21.


The film is not about his once popular television show of the same name but rather his early years in real estate.

“We will be filing a lawsuit to address the blatantly false assertions from these pretend filmmakers,” Trump campaign spokesperson Steven Cheung said in a statement to The Hill. “This garbage is pure fiction which sensationalizes lies that have been long debunked. As with the illegal Biden Trials, this is election interference by Hollywood elites, who know that President Trump will retake the White House and beat their candidate of choice because nothing they have done has worked.”

“This ‘film’ is pure malicious defamation, should not see the light of day, and doesn’t even deserve a place in the straight-to-DVD section of a bargain bin at a soon-to-be-closed discount movie store, it belongs in a dumpster fire,” Cheung continued.

The film is directed by Ali Abbassi.  It premiered Monday at the Cannes Film Festival with reports of an eight-minute standing ovation.

It stars Sebastian Stan as a then-New York real estate developer Trump and Jeremy Strong of “Succession” as the future president’s real-life former attorney and mentor Roy Cohn.

The film does not paint Trump and most of his family members in a positive light.

At Monday’s premiere, Abbassi recalled, “When we did this movie, everyone said, ‘Why do you want to make a movie with Trump? You know, if you want to tell something about the world, do it in a nice way, in a metaphorical way.'”

But, he said to applause, “There is no nice, metaphorical way to deal with the rising wave of fascism. The messy way, the banal way, is only the way of dealing with this wave on its own terms, at its own level.”

“It’s not going to be pretty,” he added, “but I think the problem with the world is that the good people have been quiet for too long.”

Polymarket listed odds on the potential for a lawsuit against The Apprentice Filmmakers by Tuesday afternoon, shortly after 1 pm ET.

This market will resolve to "Yes" if Donald Trump or his campaign files a lawsuit against the filmmakers, producers, or any other entity responsible for the creation of the movie 'The Apprentice' by May 31, 2024, 11:59 PM ET. Otherwise, this market will resolve to "No".

An announcement of a lawsuit will NOT qualify for a “Yes” resolution; a lawsuit must actually be filed.

The primary resolution sources for this market will be official information from the relevant court. However, a consensus of credible reporting may also be used.

Polymarket does not accept real money bets from those in the U.S.
