Patrick Stewart Applies For U.S. Citizenship To ‘Fight’ Trump
Patrick Stewart told the ladies of “The View” that after the election he applied to be a United States citizen so he could “fight” President Donald Trump.
During his appearance on the show Thursday, the 76-year-old English actor pushed back on the idea that his tweet a few weeks back — where it appeared he blamed the president for the worst night sleep he has ever had — was not meant as a direct dig at Trump.

“Had the worst sleep of my life last night. But I was sleeping less than 300 yds from where Donald Trump sleeps. Could there be a connection,” Stewart tweeted. (RELATED: Patrick Stewart’s Halloween costume is delightful [PHOTO])

“It was a fairly innocent tweet,” Stewart responded. “I did not directly insult your president.”
The hosts then asked if he would be interested in taking Trump off America’s hands, to which he responded that Britain has its own problems, referencing Brexit.
“I’m not a [U.S.] citizen,” Stewart said. “However, there is, maybe it’s the only good thing, as the result of this election: I am now applying for citizenship. Because I want to be an American, too.”
“Because all of my friends in Washington said, ‘There is one thing you can do. Fight, fight, oppose, oppose,'” he added. But I can’t do it because I am not a citizen.”
