At the time when Hollywood is turning its back on the new President of the United States, Donald Trump is winning a new showbiz ally in actor Michael Douglas.
The ‘Wall Street’ star has been a longtime friend of the President and believes he has more than one trick up his sleeve.
“I personally know Donald Trump,” the actor said in an interview given at the World Economic Forum in Davos.
“I spent time with him, played golf with him, my wife Catherine and I are the same age and we invited him to our birthdays. ”
The actor, who also supported Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, has always had a high opinion of Donald Trump, although he acknowledges that he has never discussed politics with him.
“I always found him charming with his humor while ironic to himself. But one of the things we learn when we play golf is that we do not talk about religion or politics,” he said.
“I think we have to wait. He’s not an idiot, and I’m curious to see what’s going to happen. ”
Who knows, maybe other Hollywood celebs will come forward as Trump supports now that he officially holds the office.
