Ben Affleck and Matt Damon’s production company have delivered a statement expressing it didn’t give the Trump campaign authorization to use audio from the movie Air in a recent fundraising video that the campaign publicized on Truth Social.

The Trump video uses Matt Damon’s lively monologue in Air to mirror the former president’s own ascent to political power and the establishment’s ensuing and continuing endeavors to destroy him.

“We hereby, expressly give notice that in the case of any use of material from Air by the Trump campaign where approval or consent is required, we do not grant such consent,” said the statement from Artists Equity, the company founded by Affleck and Damon that produced Air.


The Trump video features a mosaic of President Trump’s life and pilgrimage set to Damon’s voice.

“I’m going to look you in the eyes and I’m gonna tell you the future. It’s an American story and that’s why Americans are gonna love it,” Damon’s character says. “People are going to build you up. God, are they going to. Because when you’re great and new, we love you…”

“But you know what? Once they’ve built you as high as they possibly can, they’re going to tear you back down. It’s the most predictable pattern…. You’re going to be attacked, betrayed, exposed, and humiliated. And you’ll survive that. A lot of people can climb that mountain. It’s the way down that breaks them. Because that’s the moment you are truly alone. And what will you do then? Can you summon the will to fight on through all the pain and rise again? That will be defining question of your life.”

In the movie, Damon plays Nike executive Sonny Vaccaro who profitably signed Michael Jordan for the Air Jordan sneaker, which became the company’s top-selling shoe. The movie was dispersed by Amazon Studios.
