Matt Damon Switches to Trump , Speaks Out Against Obama
In 2008, Damon was a dedicated Obama supporter, even going out of his way to campaign for him.5 Though judging from Damon’s deep concern over Sarah Palin, it might just be that he was pushing for any candidate besides McCain.
Three years into the Obama presidency, Damon caused quite a stir when he publicly condemned Obama, indicating that, rather than being a knee-jerk liberal Democrat like most of his Hollywood friends, Damon actually follows politics–and seems to care. He said:
I think he’s rolled over to Wall Street completely. The economy has huge problems. We still have all these banks that are too big to fail. They’re bigger and making more money than ever.
I believe in him first of all because he’s a businessman. I think jobs are badly needed .
“And Trump is saying people will have to be vetted, we’ll have to have legal immigration. It’s all a scam,” she said.
“I mean, illegal immigration. When people come here and they get a lot of benefits that our own veterans don’t get. What’s up with that?”
