Donald Trump is no longer part of SAG-AFTRA

Former President Donald Trump on Thursday sent his resignation from SAG-AFTRA, the union representing approximately 160,000 experts, from stars and artists to media experts.

Trump’s resignation comes simply weeks after the union’s National Board voted to have his subscription reassessed by a disciplinary committee, associating with what a news release at the time called 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 stated. “There’s a straight line from his wanton disregard for the truth to the attacks on journalists perpetrated by his followers.”

In his resignation letter, attended to straight to Carteris and provided by SAG-AFTRA on its main site, Trump composed, “I no longer wish to be associated with your union,” mentioning what he stated were “policy failures.”

“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 defending me?” Trump, who was best known as the host of “The Apprentice” prior to entering office, wrote.

The video he referred to was a piece released last year in response to the union’s new health plan.

“You have actually not done anything for me,” Trump added, citing his pride in the appearances he made in films like “House Alone 2” and “Zoolander.”

In response to Trump’s resignation, the union released a statement that simply read: “Thank you.”
