Actor Rob Reiner said Thursday at the African American Film Critics Association Awards that the fight against President Donald Trump is the “last battle of the Civil War.”
“But then [Donald Trump] gets into office, and there are good people on both sides in Charlottesville, and there are people coming from sh*thole countries, and it goes on and on and you see the people that he hires that are in his administration, and we see that this now becomes the last battle of the Civil War,” Reiner said during his acceptance speech after receiving a “Social Justice Award.”
“And we’re fighting it right now. And we’re going to win, we’re going to win, but we thought we were on this glidepath, we’ve been dragged back and we’re going to win because if we don’t win the promise of what this country started as, which is we are all one, we are all created equal, that promise will not be realized unless we can overcome what has happened in this last election. And I know we will,” he said.
