Brad Pitt Talks Donald Trump & Brexit for 'T' Men's Fashion Issue
Here’s what the 52-year-old Allied actor had to share with the mag:
On Donald Trump: “You gotta understand, that it’s also in our DNA. Most Americans don’t have time to watch CNN and Fox and Al Jazeera. 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. A Trump supporter is fighting against just about everything. What does he even mean, take our country back? Would someone please explain that to me?…Where’d it go?”
On Brexit: “Man, I never thought [Brexit] would happen. Same way I can’t bring myself to think that Trump will be in charge. In the simplest terms, what brings us together is good, and what separates us is bad…Coming from Oklahoma, southern Missouri, which leans more toward a Trump voice, I try to understand it.”
