VIDEO: Helen Mirren Believes Having Donald Trump or Ted Cruz as President Is a 'Very Frightening Idea'
"This whole idea of making American great it seems to me it would actually be sort of the end of America as a great country," Mirren said.
The English actress voiced her thoughts on the presidential elections, specifically against the Republican party.
“There is an extraordinary, extreme, right-wing voice in America – extreme,” Mirren, 70, said to British broadcaster Channel 4 News. “If that does get into power fully – in the Congress, in the Senate, in the White House and has all the power that it wants, I can’t imagine how the world would look. I think it’s a very, very frightening idea, myself.”
Although she did not name Trump or Cruz specifically, the Oscar winner did make a reference to Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again” slogan.
“This whole idea of ‘making America great’ it seems to me it would actually be sort of the end of America as a great country,” Mirren retorted.
This is not the first time the Trumbo star has been on the anti-Trump bandwagon.
At the Gotham Awards in November, Mirren called the Republican presidential candidate “stupid.”
