In an address to the United Nations, Jolie issued a warning about politicians which may have been indirectly directed at Trump, specifically his anti-TPP and anti-NAFTA stances as well as his criticism of NATO.

As reported by Vanity Fair Jolie states:

“We see some politicians elected partly on the basis of dismissing international institutions or agreements, as if our countries have not benefited from cooperation but have actually been harmed by it.”

The star of “Gia” and “Mr. and Mrs. Smith”, who is America’s special envoy to the U.N. refugee agency, went on to attack what she sees as increasing xenophobia.

As reported by Page Six

The American actress and special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency decried a “rising tide of nationalism masquerading as populism, and the re-emergence of policies encouraging fear and hatred of others” during a speech at the U.N. in Geneva on Wednesday.

It is not clear, however, what solutions Ms. Jolie would prescribe to deal with the problems President Donald Trump and his supporters see as serious – including job losses due to unfair trade practices and illegal immigration especially as it contributes to the threat of terrorism.

Angelina Jolie, who is the daughter of staunch conservative actor Jon Voight and who was married to liberal actor Brad Pitt, is a self-described Independent who has been critical of Obama as well, and says she is a proud American.
