President Donald Trump has had enough of the elite class’ attempts to bully him, and he’s fighting back. Fox News exclusively obtained a letter sent by Trump to Gabrielle Carteris, the president of The Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA).
In the letter, Trump announces that he is resigning from SAG after they threatened to expel him from the union after the Capitol riot. His response: “Who cares!”
The letter of resignation was sent on February 3, after the SAG board voted “overwhelmingly” that Trump violated the union’s membership guidelines.
“I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!” Trump wrote to Carteris.
“While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice—to name just a few!” Trump continued.
“I’ve also greatly helped the cable news television business (said to be a dying platform with not much time left until I got involved in politics), and created thousands of jobs at networks such as MSDNC and Fake News CNN, among many others,” he added.
“Which brings me to your blatant attempt at free media attention to distract from your dismal record as a union. Your organization has done little for its members, and nothing for me—besides collecting dues and promoting dangerous un-American policies and ideas—as evident by your massive unemployment rates and lawsuits from celebrated actors, who even recorded a video asking, ‘Why isn’t the union fighting for me?’” Trump wrote, referring to a video that circulated in 2020 by actors such as Mark Hammill, Whoopi Goldberg, and Morgan Freeman, slamming the union’s cuts to health plan benefits.
Goldberg asks in the video: “Why isn’t the union fighting for me?”
Trump also attacked SAG for its “policy failures,” adding that its “disciplinary failures are even more egregious.”
“I no longer wish to be associated with your union. As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resigning from SAG-AFTRA. You have done nothing for me,” Trump added.
The letter received a two word reply from SAG: “Thank you.”
Trump had been a member of the Screen Actors Guild since 1989.
