Actor Jon Voight has lashed out at President Joe Biden, calling his administration a “disaster” following the migrant crisis on the US-Mexico border. The 82-year-old actor, who was approached by reporters while he was running his errands in Beverly Hills, said that he hopes former President Donald Trump would return to power in 2024. 

On Tuesday afternoon, the staunch Trump supporter and Republican was asked what he thought of Biden’s first few months in the Oval Office and he told The Sun that the POTUS was doing “not very well.” He then added, “First of all, he [Biden] is not in charge, is he?”

Voight also believes that Vice President Kamala Harris is not running the show either. He said, “I think you’re getting the Green New Deal people taking up the front row and it doesn’t bode very well for our economy or just generally speaking.” He expressed his concern particularly about the situation at the southern border where the US has seen the biggest surge in migrants in over 20 years.

Voight claimed, “It’s a disaster, isn’t it? And the media is keeping it from us.” He then added, “There’s quite a lot of very disturbing things that are going on, so say a prayer for our country.”

Voight also claimed that Trump was very much in the picture for the 2024 presidential elections, and said, “We’ll have to see, there’s a little time to go but he is still very, very in the picture with Republicans,” adding, “He has tremendous influence and he has got tremendous energy, I admire him greatly. I would like to see him back in the presidency.”

In the meantime, Trump was hogging the headlines after he called for a boycott of the MLB aafter the leagues’ decision to move their All-Star Gme Georgia game out of the state in response to Georgia’s new voting law, which Democrats are saying will lead to voter supression.

The call for the move came from Biden, and later MLB released a press statement on April 2, announcing that they supported fair electoral practices and will hence move the game out of the state of Georgia. As of now, a new host city is yet to be decided and the press indicates that this announcement will be made in the following days.

Trump’s call for boycotting MLB was in response to this. In a statement, Trump said, “Baseball is already losing tremendous numbers of fans, and now they leave Atlanta with their All-Star Game because they are afraid of the Radical Left Democrats who do not want voter I.D., which is desperately needed, to have anything to do with our elections,” and added, “Boycott baseball and all of the woke companies that are interfering with Free and Fair Elections. Are you listening Coke, Delta, and all!”
