American director Spike Lee said he wanted President Donald Trump to watch his new film " BlacKkKlansman," a thrilling but cynical film about ethnic relations in the United States for decades.

The film is based on a true story of a black US police investigator who penetrated the Ku Klux Klan movement or KKK in the 1970s. The film began in the United States on Friday.

Lee said the timing of the screening was specifically chosen to mark the anniversary of last year's violent clashes between white nationalists and anti-racist protesters in Charlottesville, Virginia, which claimed the lives of a woman.

Trump raised widespread criticism last year after blaming the violence on both sides. The film includes video footage of the protests.

I want the man in the White House to see him too, Lee told Reuters television at the premiere of his film in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.

When I saw the horrific act of domestic terrorism that grew up in America, I realized immediately that I wanted to do it (the film's output), he said in reference to the events in Charlottesville.

Grace, who embodies the role of David Duke, the leader of Ku Klux Klan in the 1970s, said the film's crew severely tinkered the film and the events that took place during filming.

The timing is more and more appropriate every second, and the film should not be in line with what is going on now more than the time, but unfortunately, he said.
