Jon Voight Just Went On A Delusional Rant Trying To Defend Trump, Says Racism Was ‘Solved Long Ago’
Actor Jon Voight is one of Hollywood’s biggest supporters of Donald Trump and over the weekend he took to Twitter to share a video as to why the president should not be called a “racist.”
According to Voight, racism doesn’t exist anymore and it’s a problem that was “solved long ago by our forefathers.”
“My fellow Americans, too many are angered at the words of racism,” Voight said in a video he tweeted over the weekend, captioned “Jon Voight’s message for America.”
“This has been a big issue for the black community since the Civil War, but this has been solved long ago by our forefathers for peace and love,” he added.
“It seems that the angered left and angered minorities want to hold President Trump accountable for past lives,” Voight said. “You see, we have been gifted with truth, and as I see it, anger is among the old chains that were binding to the people of slavery, old wounds that still seem fresh.”
The actor went on to call for Americans to “vote for this country’s safety,” adding, “May all the angered left find truth, what truth stands for.”
“We must understand that this is a nation of liberty, and this president is honoring all. He is not a racist but a man who loves his country and has every intention to make this land great again,” he said.
The 80-year-old actor also claimed that these times should not be compared to the horrors of the Holocaust.
“Let me talk about old wounds, the Holocaust. That, my friends, are wounds that live among the Jewish and non-Jewish that lost lives,” the actor said. “But this is not about color, race, religion. This is the United States of America, a nation built on trust and liberty.”

What is most ironic about Voight’s love for Trump is that his own daughter, Angelina Jolie, has been one of the president’s biggest critics.
