Pierce Brosnan praised President Donald Trump’s economy in a recent interview—in a rare word of praise from a Hollywood actor.
“I think what he’s done for the economy is very good,” the “Goldeneye” actor told ITK in response to a question about him saying he would leave the United States.”People are working, and that’s a step in the right direction.”
He added: “This country is part of my life. I’m an American citizen. I love America and America’s been very good to me. And I want to see happiness come back into our society.”
In 2018, Brosnan, who portrayed James Bond in several films from 1995 to 2002, expressed disdain for Trump and suggested he would leave the country. “You have to work out how much longer you can stay here,” he said, Yahoo reported.
In the ITK interview, he didn’t say who he would endorse for president.
Brosnan, 66, said he’s “biding his time” in regard to his supporting a 2020 presidential candidate. “We shall see,” he added.
Meanwhile, pro-Trump actor Jon Voight, who has frequently praised the president on social media, said in a video that he believes that “evil is trying to win” after the House voted on two articles of impeachment against Trump.
Voight said in a video: “If the impeachment proceeds, America will fall, for President Trump has built it back and the extreme left are destroying this nation’s glory.” The Academy Award-winning actor added: “This is evil intent to destroy a president who has America in his hands … What do we do?” And then suggested that the best form of action is to “pray and hope that in God we trust.”
