Conservative actor Jon Voight says that the Democrat Party is no longer an American party and “doesn’t represent America anymore.”
“I’m a big supporter of our president, and I feel that what has happened with the Democratic party is something that I’d never thought I’d see happen,” the Academy Award-winning actor told The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.
“This is not the Democratic party of John Kennedy, who I was in support of,” Voight added.
“They had many heroes in the Democratic party. They have no heroes today. There’s a lot of slander and name-calling and lying that’s going on and passing itself off as news. This is my opinion. That’s where I stand and I don’t like it,” the Deliverance star said.
“Somebody has to stand up and say that and punch back at that nonsense. This is not America. The Democratic party doesn’t represent America anymore,” the famously Trump-supporting actor continued.
Voight also slammed Hollywood liberals who he says will “attack anybody who is for Trump or who is for the Republican party.”
“The Democratic party has been undermined and overtaken, and I wish it could recoup itself and that there could be people who would stand up for the Democratic party that we have known and we have counted on and there are not anybody in that group who is standing up and protecting it. They are falling in,” the actor added.
Voight added that Trump is the “greatest president of this century.”
He also said he thinks Trump will win re-election.
“Donald Trump is going to win the presidency once again and this is going to be proven to be nonsense just as the two years with [the Mueller Report] and millions of dollars wasted and has taken those people in the House who are Democrats away from doing the business of the people,” he exclaimed.
Voight also slammed the left’s constant stream of fake news about the Trump administration.
