Trump Resigns From SAG-AFTRA Before They Kick Him Out!!

Former President Donald Trump resigned from SAG-AFTRA, the union representing actors and musicians and media professionals -- before they could expel him.

The union's National Board was preparing to vote to have his membership reevaluated by a disciplinary committee following Trump's "role in inciting the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6."

"Donald Trump attacked the values that this union holds most sacred -- democracy, truth, respect for our fellow Americans of all races and faiths, and the sanctity of the free press," union president Gabrielle Carteris said. "There's a straight line from his wanton disregard for the truth to the attacks on journalists perpetrated by his followers."


In true Trump fashion, he beat them to the punch -- resigning ahead of the vote.

 "I no longer wish to be associated with your union," he wrote.

"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?"
