The Purge franchise has been going on steady since 2013, and each installment manages to make a commentary on modern-day America. The first poster for the next Purge movie has come out, and it mocks Donald Trump’s Make America Great Again campaign.

Check it out:

Here’s also an official description for the film:

“Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge. To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community. But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.”

Despite being reviewed poorly, the Purge movies actually make a lot of money. What’s interesting is, though a lot of the audience come for the wanton violence in the films, there’s a lot of socio-political commentary on the differences in class and their position in society.

As it stands, the most successful Purge movie was the third one The Purge: Election Year; and it looks like Trump’s influence isn’t gone with this upcoming The First Purge.

The First Purge is set to hit theaters this coming Independence Day, July 4.
