Sean Penn Calls Trump An 'Enemy Of The State' Over Recent Racist Comments

Sean Penn Calls Trump An 'Enemy Of The State' Over Recent Racist Comments
4 months ago

President Trump's "shithole country" remark, regarding immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, continues to generate passionate scrutiny. This time it's actor and founder of the J/P Haitian Relief Organization, Sean Penn. 

In a new op-ed piece for Time magazine, Penn holds no punches in expressing what he thinks of Trump:

"The solution to our current divisiveness does not live in the White House. Instead, we will find unity only when we recognize that in our current president we have elected, perhaps for the first time in our history, an enemy of compassion. Indeed, we can be unified not only with each other but with Africa, El Salvador, Haiti, Mexico, the Middle East and beyond if we recognize President Donald Trump is an enemy of Americans, Republicans, Democrats, Independents and every new child born. An enemy of mankind. He is indeed an enemy of the state."

The above excerpt comes at the conclusion of Penn's piece, after detailing his efforts—alongside American volunteers and the U.S. Army—to aid the people of Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010.  

"Today is the eighth anniversary of that awful day in 2010. I still smell the blood and death that greeted us in that humid air upon arrival and through our first months in the country. I still see the tears and hear the primal screams of mothers, fathers, sons and daughters who lost family so horribly, so shockingly." 

But not everyone was supportive of Penn's statement:
