The iconic US actor is a harsh critic of the 45th president, whom he has referred to as a "motherf***er" who is "ruining the planet". The 70-year-old star also noted that people who do not speak against Donald Trump are “complicit”.

Hollywood star Samuel L Jackson has again hit out at US President Donald Trump, describing him as "dangerous" for the United States and the world. The actor made the statement during a late night show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, as a virtual guest host. During his appearance, Jackson reiterated recent allegations made against the president which Trump has denied. Among other things Jackson noted, were that Trump intentionally downplayed the risk of coronavirus and called US soldiers killed in action "losers" and "suckers". The actor also suggested that Trump encourages supporters to commit felonies, as at a North Carolina rally the president urged people to vote twice in the election.

"Who can still be voting for this guy after all the stuff that has gone down on his watch?”, the actor pointed out.

Jackson showed a spoof advertisement for the Trump campaign, which noted that voting for the 74-year-old Republican may cause side effects, such as "racism, sexism, nepotism, corruption, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, destruction of the economy, the Constitution, the ecosystem".

The narrator in the video also alleged that anyone voting for Trump is "insane", and then proceeded to insult the president by stating:

"This November re-elect president Donald J Trump, because he alone can keep America Great. Just kidding. He’s a f**king idiot".

Some social media users disagreed with Jackson and with the parody of Trump and his campaign efforts.

Several netizens asserted that Trump was not dangerous to the United States.

​Other users highlighted what has been touted as Trump’s successes in the economy and suggested that, unlike his predecessors, he didn't start wars.

​Another remarked that the actor doesn’t care about ordinary people and shouldn’t be telling the public how to vote.

​Jackson, alongside most the powerful US entertainment sector, has been a harsh critic of Trump ever since the real estate mogul announced in 2015 that he would make another run for president. Like Trump, Jackson actively uses Twitter where he frequently blasts the president. In 2018, he called Trump a "mother**cker" after the president alarmingly suggested arming school teachers as a way to address school shootings in the United States.

Jackson also claimed that Trump cheats at golf, and claimed that he had received a surprise bill for being a member of one of the latter's courses.
