Actress Lindsay Lohan says that critics should “stop bullying” President Donald Trump and “start trusting him.”
In a Twitter post, Lohan wrote, “THIS IS our president. Stop #bullying him & start trusting him. Thank you personally for supporting #THEUSA.” She included CNN’s Twitter account in the message. She was replying to a pro-Trump message—a screenshot of a Breitbart article with the headline: “President Donald J. Trump has backed the fight to save the critically ill British baby Charlie Gard…”
Trump had offered to give care to a British baby, Charlie, on life support after the baby’s parents lost a legal battle with the European Court of Human Rights, which said any further treatment would “continue to cause Charlie significant harm.”
The actress also defended Trump last year, saying that “people are too mean” towards him.
“I know Donald Trump, he is a nice person,” she added. “I like Donald as a person, but I’m a Hillary Clinton fan.”
This week, Lohan retweeted a message thanking the president for Supreme Court pick, Justice Neil Gorsuch. The post noted his conservative stance and how, so far, he has agreed with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “100 percent of the time.”
During a Facebook Live Q&A for the Daily Mail in February, she called on Americans to work with the president.
“I think always in the public eye you’re going to get scrutinized,” she added. “He is the president—we have to join him. If you can’t beat him, join him.”
