In an extensive interview with the Guardian, actress Susan Sarandon reaffirmed her belief that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton posed a greater threat to the country than President Donald Trump, stating, ” I think she was very dangerous.”

Sarandon, who has taken heat for her previous comments both before the election and after Trump won in 2016, was unapologetic despite what has transpired under the Republican president.

“Well, I knew that New York was going to go [for Hillary]. It was probably the easiest place to vote for Stein. Bringing attention to working-class issues is not a luxury,” Sarandon explained. “People are really hurting; that’s how this guy got in. What we should be discussing is not the election, but how we got to the point where Trump was the answer.”

Asked about her comment before the election that Clinton was more dangerous than Trump and if she stood by it, Sarandon said she was misquoted but wasn’t bothered by the sentiment.

“Not exactly, but I don’t mind that quote,” she stated. “I did think she was very, very dangerous. We would still be fracking, we would be at war [if she was president]. It wouldn’t be much smoother. Look what happened under Obama that we didn’t notice.”

The actress also took some shots at former President Barack Obama, when claiming Clinton would actively be deporting immigrants.

“She would’ve done it the way Obama did it, which was sneakily,” Sarandon asserted. “He deported more people than have been deported now. How he got the Nobel Peace Prize, I don’t know. I think it was very important to have a black family in the White House and I think some of the stuff he did was good. He tried really hard about healthcare. But he didn’t go all the way because of big pharma.”

The Lincoln Project, the group of former top GOP strategists working to defeat Trump, said that "only one candidate will protect your family from coronavirus" in a new video.

Trump said he would give UN speech despite pandemic — but reversed course and won’t be attending

Published

US President Donald Trump will not attend next week's UN General Assembly gathering in person, his chief of staff told journalists aboard Air Force One Thursday, according to a pool report.

The decision marks an about-face for Trump, who last month said he wanted to deliver his speech in the General Assembly hall in New York, even if other world leaders are staying away due to the coronavirus pandemic.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows ended the debate once and for all, telling reporters en route to Wisconsin, where Trump was to hold a campaign rally, that the president would not physically attend the General Assembly's 75th session, which will take place mainly by videoconference due to the health crisis.
