George Clooney Blasts Donald Trump As A 'Xenophobic Fascist'

George Clooney has slammed US Republican candidate Donald Trump, branding him “xenophobic” and “a fascist”.

In a new interview with The Guardian, the actor and long-time Democratic supporter reveals that he’s backing Hillary Clinton for the upcoming presidential election, but has nothing good to say about Trump, the man who is likely to become the Republican candidate.

After describing Trump as “just an opportunist”, he goes on, adding that “he’s a fascist; a xenophobic fascist.”

The ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ actor is far from the first actor to speak out against Trump, with Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stewart and Cher all revealing they intend to leave the US if he were to be elected president.

Similarly, Samuel L Jackson has admitted he’d move to South Africa “if that motherf***er becomes president”, while Adele recently hit out at him when he used her music at one of his Republican rallies.
