Director David Lynch Says His Trump Comments Were Taken Out of Context

Twin Peaks director David Lynch is speaking out to clarify comments that he made about President Trump, which he says were taken out of context.

In an interview with The Guardian, Lynch talked about Trump‘s approach to the presidency.

“He could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much,” Lynch said. “No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.”

Trump retweeted a post about the comments and even read quotes during a rally in South Carolina. This led Lynch to write an open letter to the president to clarify his comments.

“I saw that you re-tweeted the Breitbart article with the heading – Director David Lynch: Trump ‘Could Go Down as One of the Greatest Presidents in History.’ I wish you and I could sit down and have a talk. This quote which has traveled around was taken a bit out of context and would need some explaining,” Lynch wrote in the Facebook post. “Unfortunately, if you continue as you have been, you will not have a chance to go down in history as a great president. This would be very sad it seems for you – and for the country. You are causing suffering and division.”

“It’s not too late to turn the ship around. Point our ship toward a bright future for all. You can unite the country. Your soul will sing. Under great loving leadership, no one loses – everybody wins. It’s something I hope you think about and take to heart. All you need to do is treat all the people as you would like to be treated,” he added.
