Filmmaker Michael Moore delivered a note to Trump Tower that read 'You lost. Step aside.'


Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore went on a mission Saturday to deliver a message to President-elect Donald Trump and he made it to the fourth floor of Trump Tower before Secret Service turned him away, according to the Washington Post

Moore said on Twitter that the agents told him they would deliver his note to Trump. 

"You lost," the note read, according to Moore. "Step aside." 

Despite being a critic of the president-elect,  Moore was one of the few people to predict a Trump victory. 

"I'm sorry to be the buzzkill here," Moore said during an interview on "Real Time with Bill Maher."

Just a few weeks before the election, he released "Michael Moore in TrumpLand." It was a film that was highly critical of Trump. 

On Saturday the liberal activist headed to Trump Tower with his camera crew, while also broadcasting his visit on Facebook Live. 

During his live stream, Moore described the lobby and told viewers that the Saturday before he had spoken to Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway.

As he was filming, Moore rode the escalators until he reached the fourth floor. 

At that point, Secret Service agents told him he couldn't go any further.

After heading downstairs, Moore told the doorman in the lobby that he wanted to see Trump. Since that request was denied, Moore ended up leaving him another note. 

“Mr. Trump. I’m here. I want to talk to you," the note said according to the Washington Post. 

"I'm opposed to this man who did not win the popular vote taking office, and we need to figure out what we can do, legally, nonviolently, to make sure this doesn't happen," Moore said in the live stream after leaving the building. 

Since Trump's victory, protests have broken out in dozens of American cities.
