Donald Trump's planned re-election slogan comes right out of The Purge movies

Donald Trump's new slogan comes out of the Purge. No joke.

Donald Trump's not even become President yet, but it has emerged he's come up with a slogan for re-election. 

The President-elect has come up with 'Keep America Great!' as the sequel to 'Make America Great Again'.

The only problem is, it's been used before - in a dystopian horror action film. No, we're not joking.

The latest film in The Purge trilogy, Election Year, used the slogan as a promotional tool, just without the exclamation mark.

The trilogy chronicles an America where a political party called the New Founding Fathers Of America rule. As a mechanism to reduce crime across the country, they give their subjects a 12-hour window where all forms of crime are legal - to get it out of their system. None of the crimes committed in this period - from murder to rape to arson - can be prosecuted. 

So even though the Donald appears to have made the comparison unwillingly, we'll just ignore how ominous his thinking appears to be and focus on the comedy element to it all. 

He'll probably be sued for copyright breach, at the least.
