45th President Donald Trump has announced that he will screen the box office hit Sound of Freedom at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster on July 19th


Sound of Freedom, which premiered on July 4th, earned $41.7 million in its first week, beating out Disney’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny as the top spot at the box office. 

The film, directed by Alejandro Monteverde and distributed by Angel Studios, is based on the true story of a man named Tim Ballard, a Homeland Security Department agent who worked to rescue children from the sex-trafficking trade in Colombia. 

The film has been a box office hit, but has also drawn criticism by some media outlets and critics who have tried to politicize the movie, pinning it as a “recruiting tool for the far right.” 

Rolling Stone critic Miles Klee called the film a “superhero movie for dads with brainworms,” while The Guardian critic Charles Bramesco labeled the film as “QAnon-adjacent.” 

Despite these criticisms, Sound of Freedom has received a 100% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. 

The film’s producer, Eduardo Verástegui, was born in Mexico and he was previously appointed as a member of Trump’s Advisory Commission on Hispanic Prosperity. Ballard, who was part of the Trump administration’s Public-Private Partnership Advisory Council to End Human Trafficking, are both expected to join the former president at the screening. 

Jim Caviezel, who stars in the film as Ballard, will be joining in attendance as well. 

When the screening was announced, Trump’s campaign team mentioned the former president’s steps to put an end to human trafficking and highlighted Ballard’s support of a border wall. 

The screening is scheduled to be viewed by Trump’s golf club members and political supporters.
