Michael Moore has shared his plans for Inauguration Day, and chances are they might be similar to that of most U.S. voters. Moore, who called president-elect Donald Trump a “sociopath,”toldThe Hollywood Reporter he will be protesting. The Inauguration Day protest on Jan. 20 is just one protest already planned to oppose the incoming administration. There is also the Women’s March on Washington protest planned for Jan. 21, which on Friday saw a setback when the National Park Service blocked protesters from the Lincoln Memorial and most other D.C.-area prominent public spaces for the weeks surrounding the inauguration.

In an email to THR Moore, who most recently unveiled his film Michael Moore in Trumpland before Election Day, wrote: "If by some awful happenstance Trump shows up to be sworn in on January 20th, I will be there helping lead the national protest and non-violently disrupting the inauguration of a man no one other than the electoral college elected—and I'll also be doing my own thing as a private citizen (activities I won't disclose now)."

Moore previously joined a protest in the days after the election’s conclusion and left Trump a note at Trump Tower telling him to “step aside” because he lost the popular vote. Clinton is so far besting Trump in the popular vote by over 2.5 million votes. Trump, as he has on so many other issues, changed his feelings about the electoral college after his win. Trump called the electoral college “genius” after once calling it a “disaster to democracy.”

On Wednesday Moore tweeted a link to the "Disrupt the Inauguration" protest.

In his email Moore also wrote that there’s still a possibility Trump won’t become president: “If there's one thing we've learned from this election, don't assume anything that's supposed to happen will. If I had told you a year ago that a socialist would win nearly half of all the Democratic primaries and caucuses (22), that would have sounded insane. If I would have told you that a candidate bragging about his sexual assaults or attacking a Gold Star family would be his path to winning, you would have ended this interview.”
