Actor Chris Pine questioned what time period President Trump wants to return to regarding his “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan.
Pine weighed in on the slogan during a discussion with actress Robin Wright, who plays fictional President Claire Underwood on “House of Cards,” released by Variety on Friday as part of the “Actors on Actors” series.
“This is maybe too political for this, but I always think this idea of ‘Make America Great Again’ …” Pine said.
“What period of history are we talking about? Jim Crow? Slavery? Plantation masters?” Pine asked. “And this is not to hate on the country in which I live, which I love, obviously, dearly.”
Pine said America has had “problems for ever and ever and ever.”
Wright said Trump should have specified what “great” era in American history he was referring to.
