Hollywood icon Robert Redford is lamenting the state of politics in the U.S.
In a statement posted to the Sundance Institute’s website, Redford wrote that “for the first time,” he feels “out of place” in his country.
“For the first time I can remember, I feel out of place in the country I was born into and the citizenship I’ve loved my whole life,” he wrote. “For weeks I’ve watched with sadness as our civil servants have failed us, turning toward bigotry, mean-spiritedness, and mockery as the now-normal tools of the trade.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Redford, who has said he will retire from acting after his new film “The Old Man and the Gun,” has been critical of President Trump and the GOP in the past.
Though the actor did not point to any specific current events or politicians, his statement, posted Friday, came amid the contentious fight over Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court.
