The Hollywood actor and activist voiced her disproval at the Republican's stance on religious freedom
Angelina Jolie has spoken out against the republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.
All throughout his campaign, the New York billionaire has casted aspursions on minorities, refugees and Muslims. Trump has on more than one occasion threatened to deport all Muslims and refuse them entry into the United States.
“To me, America is built on people from around the world coming together for freedoms, especially freedom of religion,” she said, speaking on BBC’s World on the Move. “So it's hard to hear this is coming from someone who is pressing to be an American president.”
“Fear of uncontrolled migration has eroded public confidence and the ability of governments and international institutions to control the situation,” she stated in a keynote speech to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. “It has given space to a false air of legitimacy to those who promote politics of fear and separation.”
