Ian Somerhalder Calls Donald Trump Election 'A Very Big Wake Up Call'

Ian Somerhalder is opening up about Donald Trump being elected the next President of the United States.

“What happened last Tuesday is a very big wake up call,” the 37-year-old Vampire Diaries star expressed at the 2016 WildAid Gala held on Saturday (November 12) at The Ritz-Carlton in San Francisco. “Effectively if we want to change anything in regards to environment, species or habitat conservation we now more than ever have to find the sound economics of conservation, regarding environment and species. As a populist, we’re never going to change anything without each other.”

Ian was joined by his wife Nikki Reed as well as John Corbett at the event, where he was honored with the prestigious Wildlife Champion Award, past recipients of which include Sir Paul McCartney and actress Maggie Q.
