Jon Voight: ‘The Democratic Party Doesn’t Represent America Anymore’


Actor Jon Voight in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter published Wednesday night slammed the Democratic Party he once supported, saying that it is now unrecognizable and “doesn’t represent America anymore.”

A now avid President Trump supporter, Voight did not sugarcoat his remarks:

"I’m a big supporter of our president, and I feel that what has happened with the Democratic party is something that I’d never thought I’d see happen. This is not the Democratic party of John Kennedy, who I was in support of," he told The Hollywood Reporter while attending the premiere of his daughter Angelina Jolie's film, "Maleficent: Mistress of Evil." "They had many heroes in the Democratic party. They have no heroes today. There’s a lot of slander and name-calling and lying that’s going on and passing itself off as news. This is my opinion. That’s where I stand and I don’t like it. Somebody has to stand up and say that and punch back at that nonsense."

"This is not America," he continued. "The Democratic Party doesn’t represent America anymore."

The Oscar-winner also predicted that Trump, despite the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment efforts, would win come 2020:

“Donald Trump is going to win the presidency once again and this is going to be proven to be nonsense just as the two years with [the Mueller Report] and millions of dollars wasted and has taken those people in the House who are Democrats away from doing the business of the people,” he said.  

Voight has previously called Trump "the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln." He has been very vocal about his support for the president in the 2016 election and now, just two weeks ago calling the Democrats' impeachment inquiry a "war against truths" and a "disgrace."
