One of America’s favourite actors, Clint Eastwood, has come out in favour of Donald Trump, the controversial Republican candidate for the post of US President.

“I will have to vote Trump because Hillary Clinton said she will follow in the footsteps of Obama,” he said during a hard-hitting interview with Esquire magazine.

Dirty Harry also gave a good thumping to political correctness, saying: “We live in a generation of cowards.” He said the billionaire property mogul has: “put his finger on something, because everyone is secretly tired of political correctness”.

The 86-year-old actor-director, who in 2009 received at the Cannes Film Festival a lifetime achievement Palme d’Or, only the second in its history, said that Trump said what was on his mind. “Sometimes it’s good and sometimes … I do not always agree with him”.

Taking a swipe at Hillary Clinton, he said “She’s made a lot of money out of being a politician.” Eastwood, a strong Republican, was at one time the mayor of a coastal California town, Carmel, where the monthly salary for the top municipal post was $200.
