Political tension has grown exponentially in the United States following waves of protests over the death of George Floyd during an arrest. Many are the Hollywood personalities who have signified themselves in favor of the Black Lives Matter movement and who have condemned the position adopted by the President of the United States, Donald Trump, in this regard. The last to give his opinion has been Spike Lee, who has described Trump as “the worst president” in the history of the United States.
“If this guy wins, the world is in danger. Not just the United States of America. The world,” Lee said in an interview with GQ magazine, referring to Trump’s possible re-election in the presidential elections to be held in United States in November of this year. According to the filmmaker, Trump “will go down in history as the worst president of the United States of America.”
In Lee’s new movie, titled ‘Da 5 Bloods: Brothers in Arms,’ a character refers to a member of the “Ku Klux Klan in the Oval Office.” The magazine asked the editor if he was referring to Trump, to which he replied that “he has those tendencies.” “He sided with the Klan in Charlottesville. He sympathizes with their cause,” she said.
The publication also wanted to know the predictions of the director of ‘Do what you should’ and ‘Infiltrated in the KKKlan’ regarding the upcoming presidential elections. “I’m not sure about anything. How do we know he’s not going to try to manipulate things again?”
The confrontation between Lee and Trump goes back a long way, as the president even mentioned the director in a tweet in February 2019. “Be nice if Spike Lee can read his notes, or better yet, he doesn’t have to use his notes to launch his racist blow to the president, who has done more for African Americans (criminal justice reform, lowest unemployment numbers in history, tax cuts), than any other president, “he wrote.
