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.

People think it is easy for children, from these countries, like Senegal or Nigeria, to come to Monaco,” Dr François Bourlon said. “But it’s very stressful for these sick children to travel to Nice by plane, and then be transported here to Monaco. And then they have stay with a host family, sometimes for a few weeks but other times for months.”By its direct involvement and financial donation, Barclays Monaco underlines its commitment to helping seriously ill children. “It’s our duty as a major financial institution, local and globally, to help the community and, after the crisis, to be perceived differently,” Mr Grosoli told Monaco Life. “Much like a house without electricity, a society without banks doesn’t work. We need to give more to humanity – more time, more money and more effort – to those in need. After all, nothing is as important as a child’s smile.” Barclays Monaco has been a supporter of the No Finish Line since 2005.
