Captain America star Chris Evans shared his feelings about Donald Trump’s presidency in a wide-ranging interview this week, explaining that he still finds the Republican billionaire’s political rise “unbelievable.”
“I feel rage. I feel fury,” the 35-year-old actor told Esquire for the magazine’s April cover story.
“It’s unbelievable. People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame,” he added. “They were just so happy to hear that someone was angry. Hear someone say that Washington sucks. They just want something new without actually understanding. I mean, guys like Steve Bannon—Steve Bannon!—this man has no place in politics.”
Evans — who supported Democrat Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential campaign — has been an outspoken critic of Trump on social media. The actor has criticized the president’s executive orders on immigration, and last year accused him of “energizing lies.” Shortly after the election, Evans called for an end to the Electoral College, which secured Trump’s victory even as Clinton won the popular vote.
