In an interview with Andrew Marr, the actor put on a mellow attitude towards the newly-elected President saying that Americans should give him a chance in his plans. Being the elected president, Americans ‘got no choice now’ and accept the dynamic as well as divisive attitude of the public towards his inauguration.
“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,” he said as cited by Yahoo Movies.
The actor further explained that even those who condemned Trump and his principles might think how to be constructive to his administration.
