During a reception in London for his upcoming documentary about Syrian rescue workers called “The White Helmets,” George Clooney said he hopes President-elect Donald Trump succeeds as president.
“We have to hope that [Trump] can do a decent job, because when the president of the United States fails, really terrible things happen,” Clooney said.
Clooney then went on to suggest that the United States got a “little unlucky” with Trump’s victory in the 2016 presidential election. “When we first needed a president, we had George Washington,” Clooney said. “We had Jefferson, Adams. When we had the Civil War, we had Lincoln,” the actor continued. “I think we’re going to be a little unlucky now,” Clooney said. “I can only hope for the best,”
During the presidential campaign, Clooney held fundraisers for the former Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and even went as far as predicting there’s ever going to be a President Donald Trump. “That’s not going to happen,” bragged Clooney in May 2016.
“It’s not going to happen because fear is not going to be something that drives our country,” Clooney said. “We’re not going to be scared of Muslims, or immigrants, or women. We’re not actually afraid of anything.”
Clooney is often named as a person who may run for president as a Democrat in years to come.
