Former star Isaiah Washington said he decided it was time to "walk away" from the Democratic Party and he's officially "come out of the closet" as a supporter of Trump's policies.
"There's a risk, and there's a penalty for it, but you have to walk away when it matters…and the reason I chose to walk away from the Democratic party…is that something doesn't feel right," he said during an interview for Fox News.
Washington continued, "I don't know where I'm going, but I know where I come from, and if I look at the political image of the Democratic party over the last 50 years of my life since I was five…and very little has changed for my community, then I have some questions, more than questions."
Washington explained that he is in favor of Trump's First Step Act, which is a bipartisan prison reform bill which is to reduce sentences due to "earned good time," and "assists former prisoners in reacclimating into society upon release."
"You got a lot of conservative or centric libertarian-minded people that really care about other people, but they are terrified to come out of the closet and say anything that's not in line with the Democratic party," Washington added. "I'm going to support the policy over the person."
