Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actor Brad Pitt has questioned US Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s claims.
“What does he even mean, take our country back? Would someone please explain that to me? Where’d it go?,” Pitt told New York Times T Magazine, reports thewrap.com.
“What I’m most hopeful about is that we’re a global neighbourhood now, and we start to understand each other more and more. Yet, you see this reactionary push for isolation and separation again. A Trump supporter is fighting against just about everything,” Pitt said.
Talking about his take on Brexit (the passing of the vote that is leading to Britain’s departure from the European Union), Pitt shared that he never thought it would ever happen, and he feels the same way about Trump ever having a shot at the White House.
“Same way I can’t bring myself to think that Trump will be in charge. 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'” Pitt, who has films like “Fight Club”, “Moneyball”, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and “12 Years a Slave” to his credit, told the publication.
“When things are going wrong and we can’t find the reason for it, we just start creating enemies,” he added, noting the Republican candidate’s focus on illegal immigrants as enemies.
