“He’s our president. And it’s very dynamic and as divisive of an inauguration and time as we’ve had. At the same time, it’s time for us to embrace and shake hands with this fact and be constructive with him over the next four years.”
Matthew McConaughey says it’s time we embrace Trump on The Andrew Marr Show. BBC One’s Marr suggested during the interview that Gold was about “redneck America sticking one up to the snotty East Coast elites,” McConaughey decided to share his thoughts on President Donald Trump.
When Andrew Marr asked if Americans need to give the commander in chief a break, McConaughey answered, “Well, they don’t have a choice now.”
The interview was done before Trump signed an executive order last Friday that instituted a controversial immigration ban. The actor’s wife, Camila Alves, was born in Brazil, but decided to stay in Los Angeles after visiting the city to see her aunt at the age of 15. After working as a housecleaner and waitress, she found success as a model and officially became a U.S. citizen in 2015.
Many of McConaughey’s fellow actors like Jennifer Lawrence, Mia Farrow and Alyssa Milano, have spoken out against the band.
