Actor Jeff Daniels said that Donald Trump’s re-election in 2020 would mean the “end of democracy” during an appearance Monday on MSNBC.
Daniels, who is starring on Broadway as Atticus Finch in Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird, stopped by Deadline: White House to share his thoughts on the political climate. Like host Nicolle Wallace and most of the show’s guests, Daniels is vehemently anti-Trump and challenged midwestern voters who chose Trump in 2016 to consider if they were for values like decency and respect.
“The big gamble is to go all the way to November 2020, which I agree, and lose? It’s the end of democracy,” he said.
