Mark Wahlberg Remains 'Optimistic' About Donald Trump Being President

Mark Wahlberg recently said that celebrities shouldn’t be talking about politics, but he opened up about his optimism for our country in a new interview.

The 45-year-old Patriots Day actor was asked if he thinks the United States will be safer with Donald Trump as president.

“Me being a positive person, I have to hope so,” Mark told E! News. “I have to remain optimistic that the future will get better.”

Mark says that his faith is what give him an optimistic view on life. “You think about how short life is. Peter and I have had endless conversations [about this]. I think he’s always convinced I’m trying to convert him to Catholicism, which I’m not, but life is short,” he said. “If we live to be 100, it’s still a short amount of time. I want to live forever. I want to be with my loved ones forever and my faith allows me to deal with loss, disappointment, failure, all of those things, sickness. It reminds me that things could always be worse and how lucky I am, how blessed I am, how fortunate I am and I want to encourage people to have the ability to look at things in a positive way.”
