Brad Pitt: 'I Can’t Bring Myself to Think That Trump Will Be in Charge’
Brad Pitt shared his feelings on Donald Trump in a recent interview, saying he couldn't "bring [himself] to think that Trump will be in charge."
The actor told The New York Times' style magazine that, as a native of Oklahoma who grew up in southern Missouri where Trump support is strong, he seeks to understand the candidate's appeal.
"Most Americans don’t have time to watch CNN and Fox and Al Jazeera," he explained. "They’re trying to make the rent, get the kids fed, they’re tired when they get home and they want to forget about everything.
"And so suddenly when this voice comes in - and it doesn’t have to be a voice of substance - saying he’s fed up with all of this, that’s the part that hooks into the DNA."
He described Trump's surge as a "reactionary push for isolation and separation" at a time when the world is becoming more global.
"A Trump supporter is fighting against just about everything,” he said. "What does he even mean, take our country back? Would someone please explain that to me? ... Where’d it go?"
