"We will be filing a lawsuit to address the blatantly false assertions from these pretend filmmakers," Trump campaign communications director Steven Cheung said.

The Trump campaign said it will sue the "pretend filmmakers" behind "The Apprentice," which premiered on Monday at the Cannes Film Festival.

The campaign took issue with many aspects of the film, namely a rape scene involving Trump and his first wife, Ivana, that was described as "violent" and "uncomfortable." 

The Daily Mail describes the scene: "at one point it depicts Trump raping his wife and asking: 'Did I find your g spot?'"

"We will be filing a lawsuit to address the blatantly false assertions from these pretend filmmakers," Trump campaign communications director Steven Cheung said, per the Daily Mail. "This garbage is pure fiction which sensationalizes lies that have been long debunked."

He went on to suggest that "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," Cheung added. "It belongs in a dumpster fire."

Also among those who were unhappy with the film was Dan Snyder, a billionaire who is friends with Trump and until recently owned the Washington Commanders. He had put money into the project believing that it would paint the Donald in a positive light, however he realized that was not the case after viewing a cut of the film earlier this year.

According to Variety, Snyder helped fund the film via Kinematics, a finance and production company. After seeing the direction director Ali Abbasi and his team chose to take, Kinematics' lawyers began sending cease and desist letters demanding that the film be canned.

Those familiar with the matter told the outlet that Snyder advised myriad changes, but was particularly incensed by the fact that the film included the aforementioned rape scene.

The former Mrs. Trump had accused him of abuse during divorce procedings in the 1990s, but later recanted, saying "I do not want my words to be interpreted in a literal or criminal sense."

While it is unclear exactly how far Snyder went in demading changes, Kinematics' president Emanuel Nuñez has maintained that, "all creative and business decisions involving 'The Apprentice' have always been made by Kinematics," noting that, "Mark [Rapaport] and I run our company without the involvement of any other third parties."

The film, which stars Sebastian Stan, focuses on the time in Trump's life where he was under the wing of infamous attorney Roy Cohn, attracted a number of big investors. The Canadian government under Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, as well as the Danish and Irish governments, all put money into the project, which was filmed in part in Toronto.
