Damon is a co-founder of Water.org, a nonprofit organization seeking to provide access to safe water and sanitation to people around the world.

The actor identifies with the Democratic party and supported Hillary Clinton in the presidential election, but he hopes to work with Donald Trump while he’s in the White House.

The “Jason Bourne” star attended the Sundance Film Festival over the weekend where he revealed his plans to work with the new President, Fox News reports. Damon told the Associated Press that clean water accessibility is not a partisan issue and requires “an all-hands-on-deck approach to solve.”

Damon didn’t speak much to the inauguration of Donald Trump, but said “hopefully we’ll get our turn,” and Trump will be open to helping with programs like his to provide clean water and sanitation to those in need.

The 46-year-old actor founded Water.org in 2009 with civil engineer Gary White. The program uses micro-finance loans to provide safe, clean water connections to water and toilets to impoverished communities.
