Trump a wakeup call for US: Cranston

Press AssociationPress Association 20/06/2016

Donald Trump is "empty headed" but his bid to become the next US president has given Americans a wake up call about what is happening in politics, actor Bryan Cranston has said.

"What it has done to people like me, who are just astonished at this man, it's slapped us in the face.

"It's like, 'Oh my god, this is really happening'," the Breaking Bad star told the Press Association.

"I believe that smart people will prevail and common sense will rule and he will soon be swept to the side.

"That's my hope because he is a truly a man who is the emperor without any clothes. He has no ideas. He floats with the wind."

Cranston has branded Trump a "supreme narcissist" following his controversial campaign to secure the Republican Party's nomination in the presidential election.

Cranston, who plays former US president Lyndon B Johnson in new television film All The Way, said LBJ would be "shocked" at the state of modern politics.

"He would be look at Donald Trump now and think, 'Oh my god, what the hell has happened since I've been gone?'.

"The rest of the world is probably thinking, 'Have they gone mad?'. But so are we. We're going, 'Oh my god, what has happened?'."

Trump is the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for the US presidential election, but has caused controversy with some of his proposed policies, including building a wall on the country's border with Mexico and temporarily banning Muslims from entering America.
