An American film promoting "Conspiracy Theory" Against Trump Makes High Revenue


A new film promoting conspiracy theories about previous U.S. elections has been a surprise success in the United States, embracing former President Donald Trump and his supporters' theses about his election failure.

"2000 Miles" has generated high revenues, reaching more than $1.2 million at the box office since its release late last May, directed by Dinesh D'Souza, who was previously convicted of violating campaign finance laws before being pardoned by Trump.

The film promises to "expose widespread and coordinated voter vote fraud in the 2020 election, enough to change the overall result."

The film begins with scenes showing anonymous voters fervently dropping ballots into boxes that have been stamped on the American flag, while DeSouza tells viewers that "elections are the lifeblood of our democracy."

But he adds with the dark background that the 2020 election "condemns the American conscience."

Like millions of Americans, including Trump, DeSouza expresses the view that Democrats rigged the last presidential election, relying on the widespread use of mail-in ballots during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The director's voice is heard saying, "We can't move forward unless we know the truth."

based group called "True the Foot" that says it "supports the integrity of the elections". A meeting is arranged.

In a large space full of computer servers, two members of the group say they have evidence of a well-planned operation "like Cartel" employing "smugglers" to stuff ballot boxes, in a number of states that were crucial to current President Joe Biden's 2020 victory.

To confirm their hypothesis, they rely on a large amount of anonymous positioning data from smartphone applications, which they say shows the movement of these "smugglers" back and forth between the headquarters of various NGOs and ballot boxes.

D'Souza says angrily "it's a robbery" and "a crime."

  • A number of media misinformation experts seriously questioned the theories promoted by the film
  • saying that a delivery worker, taxi driver or postman working in the neighbourhood could be mistakenly thought to be people making such outrageous trips. According to AFP.
  • For Trump and his supporters, however, that was the unequivocal proof of the fraud they have been denouncing for a year and a half.

As the US national anthem begins to play, D'Souza makes a call to action: "The America we love needs us now more than ever."
