Lindsay Lohan Defends Trump

Lindsay Lohan jumped to President Donald Trump’s defense over the July 4 holiday weekend with posts to her Twitter account in which she urged people to “stop bullying” the president and “start trusting him.”

The 31-year-old Mean Girls star responded to a tweet Monday that included a Breitbart News article about Trump’s support for Charlie Gard, a British infant whose parents are seeking experimental treatment for his terminal illness.

“THIS is our president,” Lohan tweeted in response. “Stop #bullying him & start trusting him. Thank you personally for supporting #THEUSA.”

Lohan later responded to another tweet by adding that the president, First Lady Melania Trump, daughter Ivanka Trump and son Donald Trump Jr. are all “kind people.”

“As an American, why speak poorly of anyone?” she added.

Lohan appeared to endorse former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in February 2016 in a post to her Twitter account.

But in an interview with the Daily Mail in February of this year, the actress called on Americans to unite behind Trump, and urged the president to visit Syrian refugee camps in Turkey to better understand the plight of refugees.

“I want to try to get the word out to Donald Trump to bring him over there, have him see all the positive things they are doing over there and all America can do to help as well,” Lohan told the Daily Mail. The actress has spent much of the past year visiting refugee camps and hospitals, and in January, met with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his wife Emine in the country’s presidential palace.
