Matt Damon is the most recent in a string of celebrities to come out in support of President Trump. He recently said that Trump has “a lot of work cut out for him” and then advised that Americans need to start “rooting for him.”
Damon was formerly an outspoken Clinton supporter and critical of Trump’s stance on several issues, including immigration. He says that he believes that President Trump is aware of his powerful position, that the responsibility is enormous and one that the President takes seriously.
Via National Insider Politics: “First of all, I wish him well and we all must. A successful American president is good for all of us and we really have to be rooting for him right now.” Damon said. “Obviously, it’s no secret that I didn’t vote for him. And yeah, I think there is a sense of we are heading into new territory here. He is obviously not a career politician, he has been very occupied with his own business interest, which are relatively narrow given the scope of what a president actually has to deal with, so I imagine he is really working hard right now to master so many sectors. He’s just got a lot of work cut out for him.”
Other celebrities that have come out in support of President Trump include Kanye West, Clint Eastwood, Kirstie Alley, Jon Voight and Stephen Baldwin.
