Canadian actor William Shatner won’t discuss American politics or President Donald Trump.
“I don’t want to discuss Trump or [George] Takei,” the 86-year-old actor told The Daily Beast. “Listen, I’m Canadian and I’m apolitical. I love America. I consider myself a guest here. I won’t do anything that might get me deported.”
The news publication reported that in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Shatner was mum on candidate Trump. In September 2016, he was also one of the few notable absences when the cast and crew of “Star Trek” past and present signed an open letter endorsing Hillary Clinton, claiming that Trump stood against the show’s message of inclusion.
