Dinesh D'Souza is using a trailer from his latest film to laud President Trump as the next Abraham Lincoln.

The Wrap reports:

Right wing provocateur — and recently pardoned ex-felon — Dinesh D’Souza is coming out with a new documentary feature in which compares Donald Trump to Abraham Lincoln.

In a new trailer for the film “Death of America,” released on Friday, D’Souza likened the president’s Democratic opponents to Nazis and fascists and said that like Lincoln, Trump would be called upon to save the United States from collapse.

“Lincoln was elected to unite a country and stop slavery. Democrats smeared him, went to war against him, assassinated him. Now their target is Trump,” D’Souza says in voiceover before asking ominously, “Who are the real racists? Who are the real fascists?”

The roughly two-minute preview was generously inter-spliced with B-roll featuring historical re-enactments of parading Nazis — including Hitler — as well as depictions of a pre-Civil War plantation where a black slave is whipped by a white man.
