Oh no, here we go again. There is negative press on statements made by Damon on supporting Trump now that he'll be president. I cannot find the audio clip of him saying what he did or the context in which he answered. These articles don't include the audio.

I DID find these clips where he mentions Trump in snippets

His statements were completely non-inflammatory and anyone who pretends to be outraged by them either doesn't know what he actually said (a successful America is good for the world) or is looking for clicks. End of story.

Totally agree! I got it people are upset these, but it's as if you don't say anything negative then you are pro-Trump. I am a pretty liberal person but some of these PC and extreme liberal view these days are a bit too much!

I'm just really frustrated how the media right away jumps at it just becomes he's pro-democracy and patriotic. It's a fine line balancing supporting president but not necessarily agreeing with the president. He was certainly trying his best to be diplomatic. I hope it doesn't flare up anymore

I hadn't clicked on all these links until today, but these are all good, well reported, responsible stories from reputable news agencies. They don't mischaracterize his comments at all.

These are terrific from the point of view of supporting water.org as well. What is your problem with them Gregory?

Upon reflection and revisiting the articles you're right, nothing wrong with what he said or the articles themselves. I think when I saw them posted on Facebook yesterday the negative comments from people being mad at him for his "support" of Trump made me think it was going to cause a "shit storm" in the press for him. And I also thought some of his statements would get twisted in other social media forums.
