Matt Damon on Trump: ‘We really have to be rooting for him right now’

Although he’s an open supporter of Hillary Clinton, “The Bourne Identity” actor Matt Damon essentially said, as Americans, we all need to be cheering for Donald Trump.

“First of all, I wish him well and we all must,” Damon said in an interview about clean water that led into politics. “A successful American president is good for all of us and we really have to be rooting for him right now.”

Damon went on to say that it’s no secret he didn’t vote for the guy, but acknowledged that we are “heading into new territory” while noting that Trump definitely has his “work cut out for him.”

“He’s about to become the most consequential person on the planet,” Damon said, calling it a “massive burden” and an “enormous amount of responsibility.”

Likewise, actress Nicole Kidman, who has historically leaned toward the Democratic party, also made a similar statement.

“I just say, he’s now elected, and we as a country need to support who’s ever the president because that’s what the country’s based on,” she said.
