Actor Brad Pitt said in an interview that he is not in favor of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump becoming the next president of the United States.
Pitt expressed his disinclination towards Trump’s presidency in an interview with the New York Times.
“I can’t bring myself to think that Trump will be in charge,” the actor said in the interview. “In the simplest terms, what brings us together is good, and what separates us is bad. We have this great line in ‘The Big Short.’ When things are going wrong and we can’t find the reason for it, we just start creating enemies.”
These enemies, Pitt notes, are many times right in front of us. “Illegal immigrants,” he said.
“It seems that the people who suffer the most end up betting for the party that would hurt them,” Pitt said. While he agrees that money may be the primary reason, a conversation he had with a scholar from the Brookings Institution shed light on an alternate perspective.

“A Trump supporter is fighting against just about everything,” he said. “What does he even mean, take our country back? Would someone please explain that to me?”
Pitt is not the only celebrity from the entertainment industry who has spoken against Trump. George Clooney criticized Trump, saying the latter will not win the presidency because the American public cannot be ruled by fear.
“There’s not going to be a President Donald Trump,” Clooney said, as reported by the Guardian. “Fear is not going to drive our country. We’re not afraid of Muslims or immigrants or women. We’re not going to be afraid of anything.”
