Donald Trump has announced that he will be hosting a screening of the anti-child trafficking film Sound of Freedom on July 19 at Trump National Golf Club Bedminster in New Jersey. The event will be open to club members and supporters.

The former president is set to be joined by the film’s producer, Eduardo Verástegui, acting star, Jim Caviezel, as well as founder and CEO of Operation Underground Railroad, Tim Ballard.

In a statement, Trump praised the film, highlighting its success at the box office.

“Sound of Freedom grossed $41.7 million in the first week of its release and opened at No. 1 in Texas, Florida, and Arizona theaters,” he said. “The feature has taken the nation by storm, beating out Disney’s Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny in July 4th movie ticket sales despite appearing in fewer theaters, securing the top position in the box office for the day.”

During Sound of Freedom’s opening week, Trump met with Mel Gibson, who has been a major promoter of the film.

“One of the most disturbing problems in our world today is human trafficking and particularly the trafficking of children,” Gibson said.

Members of Trump’s golf resort in Bedminster, New Jersey, and other supporters will be invited to the screening at the club on Wednesday, the Trump campaign announced in a press release that highlighted the film’s mixed reviews in mainstream media outlets.

The release also touted Trump’s record on human trafficking issues from his time in the White House and noted that one of the film’s producers, Eduardo Verastegui, was a member of Trump’s Advisory Commission on Hispanic Prosperity.

The announcement comes as numerous GOP presidential contenders — most notably Trump’s biggest challenger, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — have zeroed in on children’s safety and connected it to other cultural wedge issues, such as gender fluidity, public education and LGBTQ matters, corralled under the broad category of “parents’ rights.”

DeSantis has put those issues front and center in his campaign, leaning into a fight with Disney that began after the company criticized Florida legislation that limited classroom discussion of sexual orientation. The governor has repeatedly accused Disney of promoting the “sexualization of children,” a claim that the company’s CEO Bob Iger slammed as “preposterous” in an interview Thursday with CNBC.
