Movie legend Robert Redford wrote that it’s “time for Trump to go” in a searing opinion piece for NBC News in which he also likened President Donald Trump’s administration to a “monarchy in disguise.”
Redford said Trump (who twisted his words and falsely claimed Redford had endorsed him during the 2016 campaign) had not been his choice for president, but he “thought it only fair” to give him a chance after the election.
“But almost instantly he began to disappoint me and then alarm me,” he wrote. “I don’t think I’m alone.”
“Let’s rededicate ourselves to voting for truth, character and integrity in our representatives (no matter which side we’re on),” Redford concluded. “Let’s go back to being the leader the world so desperately needs. Let’s return, quickly, to being simply … Americans.”
