Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s production banner Artists Equity states that it “did not consent” to the use of a monologue from the film “Air” in a new campaign ad for Donald Trump.

On Saturday, Trump shared a fundraising video on his Truth Social platform.

The ad features footage and images of the former president throughout his life, accompanied by audio of Damon’s climactic monologue from the film “Air.”

In the spring release, Damon’s Nike exec gives the speech to a young Michael Jordan to convince him to sign a sponsorship deal with the shoe company.

“Money can buy you almost anything, but it can’t buy you immortality, that you have to earn,” Damon’s monologue starts, beginning the nearly two-and-a-half-minute audio clip.

Damon plays Sonny Vaccaro, a marketing executive for the company that skirts around corporate leadership to sign Jordan.

Affleck directed the film and stars as Nike CEO Phil Knight. »
