Tom Hanks is not a fan of Donald Trump, and in an interview made an interesting prediction regarding the chances of his presidency.
“I think that man will be president right about the time when spaceships come down filled with dinosaurs in red capes,” Hanks told Sky News.
Hanks took aim at the Republican presidential candidate’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”:
“Here’s the problem: America’s already great, so I don’t know what he is talking about,” he said.

The two-time Oscar winner was speaking at the London premiere of his new film, “A Hologram For The King,” where he plays a washed-up, unsuccessful businessman who travels to Saudi Arabia in hopes to sell his new hologram technology to the king.
The movie is set to be released on May 20 worldwide.
Hanks joins other Hollywood celebrities, including George Clooney and Steven Spielberg, who have come out in support of Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton.
Trump currently leads the Republican field of nominees with 846 delegates, and needs 1,237 to win the Republican National Convention in July.
Hanks also spoke about Trump in a “CBS This Morning” interview on April 21:
“Look, America’s going to be fine,” he said. “We’re the greatest, most resilient nation in the history of, of civilized, in all of civilization. We’ve worked ourselves out of holes many, many times over and over again.”
Unlike this more recent prediction with spaceships and dinosaurs, Hanks declined to make a prediction citing his inability to be clairvoyant and took a not-so-subtle jab at the media:
“I have no powers of clairvoyance like you geniuses in the news media,” he said. “I’m not saying he’s going to be president of the United States.”
Hanks did predict that the months leading up to the general election were going to be hilarious.
“What I’m saying is we are going to have the most hilarious September, October, and first week of November in a very long time,” he said.
Hanks pointed out that the media following the election will be “exhausted.”
