Clint Eastwood, a name that resonated with charisma and an undeniable presence, has left an indelible mark on the world of cinema.

But Eastwood was also known for his avid interest in politics. As a registered Republican, he served two terms as mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, starting in 1986. In 2001, he was appointed to the California State Park and Recreation Commission.

In a past interview with Esquire magazine, the actor expressed his strong feelings about Donald Trump.

He acknowledged that Trump had said “a lot of dumb things” as had politicians on both sides. He took issue with the media’s labeling of Trump’s statements as racist, stating that such accusations were not called racist when he was growing up. The director explained,

“That’s the kiss-a** generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a pu**y generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells. We see people accusing people of being racist and all kinds of stuff. When I grew up, those things weren’t called racist.” 

While Eastwood acknowledged his character’s use of racial slurs in the film Gran Torino, he did not explicitly endorse the former president.

However, given the choice between the billionaire real estate mogul and the former US secretary of state, Eastwood expressed his intention to vote for Trump without hesitation.

Despite facing detractors and criticism for his defense of Trump, producers unwavering commitment to his beliefs showcased his ability to rise above the political battle. But recently, Eastwood has also shown that he is dedicated to his career.
