On Monday, Focus Features released the first trailer for Spike Lee's latest joint, BlacKkKlansman.

Check out the trailer below.

Lee unloaded on Trump for, in his view, failing to adequately condemn white supremacy last summer, when neo-Nazis and white nationalists rallied in Charlottesville, Virginia, to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

5-year-old attacked by bear in Grand Junction
CPW told CBS Denver Sunday afternoon they have set up three traps in the neighborhood which will be left overnight. The child's mother discovered the attack when she heard screaming and saw a large black bear dragging the girl.

"Lee will surely be a strong contender for the Cannes best-director prize and he may even bag the Palme d'Or, the festival's top honour", the publication said.

Lee also said that racism and far-right ideologies are not unique to the US, and cast it as a worldwide issue.

"That's what this film is about and I know in my heart, I don't care what the critics say or anybody else, we are on the right side of history with this film".

"And that motherf**ker did not denounce the motherf**king Klan, the alt-right, and those Nazis motherf**kers".

"We look to our leaders to give us direction, to make moral decisions", he said, continuing, "this right-wing bullshit is all over the world". The flick has the potential to be as enjoyable a movie as we've ever seen from Lee. "It's not a black, white, or brown [problem], it's everybody".

The director of "Do The Right Thing", focused in particular on the alt-right rally in Charlottesville previous year that left one woman, Heather Heyer, dead with Lee attacking the president for not condemning the neo-Nazis.
