Jon Voight Claims Racism Was ‘Solved Long Ago,’ While Defending Donald Trump

Jon Voight Claims Racism Was ‘Solved Long Ago,’ While Defending Donald Trump

Jon Voighht has something to say! The actor shared a politically charged video on Twitter Sunday in which he argued that President Donald Trump isn’t racist…

“We must understand that this is a nation of liberty, and this president is honoring all. He is not a racist, but a man who loves his country and has every intention to make this land great again,” the actor said in the video titled, “Jon Voight’s message for America.” “Let us vote for this country’s safety. And may all the angered left find truth, what truth stands for.”

The 80-year-old Academy Award winner and father to actress Angelina Jolie added that racism has “been solved long ago by our forefathers” and that the “angered left-wingers preach love but only pollute.”

“It seems that the angered left and angered minorities want to hold President Trump accountable for past lives. You see, we have been gifted with truth and, as I see it, anger is among the old chains that were binding to the people of slavery, old wounds that still seem fresh,” Voight said.

Now, Voighht’s statement comes shortly after the latest mass shootings in the country where some suggest that Trump’s divisive rhetoric played a role in the attack. Of course, users quickly responded to Voighht’s post and slammed him for coming to Trump’s defense.

One user sarcastically commented,

“Wow, Jon spot on. I’ll tell my African American neighbor to get over it after another Chevy Tahoe driver calls him a racial slur,” Another said: “Who let Jon out of his room and gave him a cell phone to record.”

For those who didn’t know, Voight has always supported Trump. He has released several videos on Twitter applauding the president, including a May tweet in which he called Trump “the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.”
