Washington D.C. may still love former President Donald Trump; but Hollywood has had enough!

On February 4, the former president resigned from the acting union SAG-AFTRA after learning the organization was considering “kicking him out”.

In a Zoom conference call on February 6, SAG-AFTRA passed a resolution banning Trump from the organization permanently.

SAG-AFTRA spoke on the resolution via a statement saying the decision was based on Trump’s, “antagonism of the union’s journalist members and disregard for the values and integrity of the union”.

SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris added, “preventing Donald Trump from ever rejoining SAG-AFTRA is more than a symbolic step, it is a resounding statement that threatening or inciting harm against fellow members will not be tolerated. An attack against one is an attack against all”.

The union began looking into disciplinary action in mid-January after the January 6 insurrection on the United States Capitol.

In his letter of resignation, Trump said that the union “had done nothing for him”.

SAG-AFTRA had just two words in response to the letter, “thank you”.

Along with his 20 production credits for pageants and “The Apprentice”, the Internet Movie Data Base credits Trump with 26 acting credits.

While membership in the union does not prevent a person from obtaining an acting job, the larger film companies generally refuse to hire an non-members for productions.
