Rockland’s Stephen Baldwin thinks his former ‘Apprentice’ boss Donald Trump has what it takes to go from the boardroom to the Oval Office.
“I think he’d make a great President,” Baldwin, a longtime Nyack-area resident, said Tuesday on ‘CNN Tonight.’ “He doesn’t care what anybody thinks. That’s why he’s surging in the polls. He is saying what he thinks.”
Baldwin, who was one of the famous contestants fired by Trump on his now-cancelled reality show ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ believes the controversial candidate for the GOP nomination is “refreshing” because he is “not a wuss.”
“Everybody is going to be politically correct. Not Donald Trump,” the actor said. “And I honestly really think voters and Americans are looking at this guy saying it’s refreshing to hear somebody not be a wuss, not be a politician and really say what they think. Now, whether you like what he has to say is something else.”
Baldwin believes Trump’s intentions are good, though he says the wealthy tycoon’s words can come out the wrong way. (See: Trump brand could be vulnerable in Westchester )
“I think he’s part of the American dream and he would really like to see the country come back,” the ‘Usual Suspects’ star opined during his chat with CNN host Don Lemon.
“Trump would be as good a president as Stephen Baldwin is a good actor,” one viewer tweeted during the interview. Tell us what you think in the comments.
