Former President Donald Trump attacked actor George Clooney on Wednesday for writing an opinion piece calling for President Joe Biden to drop out of the 2024 presidential race.

The actor and director has been a longtime Democratic fundraiser and just lately helped elevate $30 million for Biden’s marketing campaign. But Clooney diverged from his stance as a Biden supporter on Wednesday and emphasised his emotions in regards to the Democratic candidate in a New York Times opinion piece printed on Wednesday, titled “I Love Joe Biden. But We Need a New Nominee.”

“I love Joe Biden. As a senator. As a vice president and as president. I consider him a friend, and I believe in him. Believe in his character. Believe in his morals,” he wrote.

“It’s devastating to say it, but the Joe Biden I was with three weeks ago at the fund-raiser was not the Joe ‘big F-ing deal’ Biden of 2010. He wasn’t even the Joe Biden of 2020. He was the same man we all witnessed at the debate,” he continued, referencing Biden’s surprising presidential debate efficiency in opposition to former President Donald Trump final month.

The debate efficiency has prompted a number of lawmakers in his get together to query whether or not he ought to be the Democratic nominee and has left them scrambling as some think about a possible various nominee.

In a Truth Social publish on Wednesday night, Trump got here after Clooney for even weighing in on the presidential marketing campaign.

“So now fake movie actor George Clooney, who never came close to making a great movie, is getting into the act. He’s turned on Crooked Joe like the rats they both are. What does Clooney know about anything?” he wrote.

The former president wrote that Biden hasn’t “saved our Democracy,” as Clooney wrote in his op-ed, and went on to reiterate his outdated criticisms of Biden.

“He uses the Democrat “talking point” that Biden, the WORST President within the historical past of the United States, has “saved our Democracy,” Trump wrote, later including: “Crooked Joe Biden didn’t save our Democracy, he brought our Democracy to its knees. Clooney should get out of politics and go back to television. Movies never really worked for him!!!”
