Morgan Freeman Apologizes to Mexico for Trump’s ‘Egregious’ Military Border Order

Hollywood veteran Morgan Freeman personally apologized to Mexico on Wednesday after President Donald Trump ordered National Guard troops to the southern border.
In a tweet, Freeman said the “egregious step” amounted to an “ego stunt” that had left him “embarrassed” to be an American.

“Dear Mexico, I apologize for the egregious step taken by our President today,” he wrote. “I hope you know his views do not reflect those of the majority of Americans, and I hope his little “ego stunt” will be over soon. Embarrassed to be an American today.”

Freeman made the comments after Trump signed an official memorandum on Wednesday to deploy the National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border, claiming that “the security of the United States is imperiled by a drastic surge of illegal activity on the southern border.”

“During the administrations of Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, the National Guard provided support for efforts to secure our southern border,” the memo says. “The crisis at our southern border once again calls for the National Guard to help secure our border and protect our homeland.”

Although Freeman claims that Trump’s “views do not reflect a majority of Americans,” recent polls indicate that most people believe illegal immigration is a serious problem and a majority of Americans support Donald Trump’s tougher immigration policies.

Despite being an active supporter of Hillary Clinton in 2016 presidential campaign, Freeman, 80, has been one of Hollywood’s less outspoken figures in the era of the Trump presidency.

Following Trump’s inauguration, he expressed hope that Trump will be a “good president,” but has since called on him to “tell us the truth” about alleged collusion with the Russian government.

“We need him to sit behind the desk in the Oval Office and say, ‘My fellow Americans. During this past election, we came under attack by the Russian government,” Freeman said in a political video last September.

    i always enjoyed his acting and never thought of him being racist, but sometimes he says the dumbest shit..so far this tops it…maybe raise his taxes 80% to help cover the cost, then move them to his neigborhood and his home in Mississippi..see how he would like it..
