The canadian actor William Shatner will not comment on American politics or the President, Donald Trump.
“I don’t want to discuss Trump or [George] Takei,” the 86-year-old actor told The Daily Beast. “Listen, I’m Canadian, and I am apolitical. I love America. I consider myself a guest here. I will do nothing that would have me deported.”
The news publication reported that in the run-up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election, Shatner was mum on the candidate Asset. In September 2016, he was also one of the few notable absences as the cast and crew of “Star Trek” past and present have signed an open letter endorsing Hillary Clinton, who claims that Trump was against the tone of the message of inclusion.

However, after the results of the elections came, Shatner tweeted the following:
Takei recently in comparison with Trump “an alien form of life” during an appearance on MSNBC.
Let’s face the facts; the world has changed, as today we woke up with an incredible result. ?? https://t.co/wpQM14DdJf

“Today, in this society, we have alien life forms that we call trolls,” said the 80-year-old. “And these trolls carry on without knowing what they’re talking about… and some of these trolls are going to be by the presidents of the nations.”
Takei added Trump is no different than the “trolls” who criticized “Star Trek” more varied cast.
Meanwhile, Shatner is choosing to focus on his career.
“I would like to be on ‘The Voice’ and singing a song from my upcoming Christmas album,” he said on his show in the business. “That reminds me… I haven’t recorded the album yet. I need to do before I get old!”
