Angelina Jolie is disgusted by Donald Trump’s suggestion to temporarily ban Muslims from entering America.
“To me, America is built on people from around the world coming together for freedoms, especially freedom of religion,” Jolie, 40, said at a Monday BBC event in London, according to CNN. “So it’s hard to hear this coming from someone who is pressing to be an American president.”
Last December, the presumptive Republican nominee for president made those shocking anti-Muslim statements and he hasn’t budged on his views.
“I’m doing the right thing when I do this,” Trump, 69, told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” in early May. “And whether it’s Muslims or whether it’s something else, I mean, I have to do that right thing, and that’s the way I’ve been guided.”
Trump’s initial statement came as thousands of Syrians fled their homeland and President Barack Obama vowed to bring 10,000 to America.
Jolie likened the crisis facing the region to World War II. She called it “that once-in-a-generation moment when nations have to pull together” adding systems meant to help refugees were breaking down.
“[It’s] not because the model is flawed or because refugees are behaving differently, but because the number of conflicts and scale of displacements have grown so large,” the mother of six explained.
