Donald Trump wants to make sure his supporters see the film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi, which debuted Friday across the country.
So Thursday night, during a debate watch party in Des Moines, one of his campaign workers announced the businessman had rented out a theater in the area to offer a free screening to those who wanted to see the biopic about the Islamist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The film, while described as "apolitical" as those who were involved in its production, is widely expected to be an indictment upon Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, who was secretary of state at the time of that attack.
Trump bought out the 6 p.m. Friday screening of the film at the Carmike Cobblestone 9 cinema in Des Moines. The tickets were paid for, all one had to do to get some was contact the theater to reserve them.
Trump's Iowa co-chair, Tana Goertz, an Iowan who is a former contestant on The Apprentice, said the businessman wanted to be sure Americans "know the truth about what happened at Benghazi." The film is based upon the recollections of the contracted security operators who are the central figures of the story.
13 Hours, directed by Michael Bay, is rated "R" by the Motion Picture Association of America for "strong combat violence throughout, bloody images and language."
