On Feb. 4, Mr. Trump resigned from the union after SAG-AFTRA threatened to deport him, claiming that they found evidence that the former President, who has been a member of the union for more than 30 years, has “violated the Constitution” regarding the events leading to the hacking of the Capitol on January 6.
In his “farewell” letter to the union, Mr. Trump wrote “Who cares!”
“The union did not do much support to its members and did nothing for me but charge fees and promote dangerous policies and ideas that do not represent America, as evidenced by the high unemployment rate faints and constant lawsuits from famous actors, “ Mr. Trump said.
“I no longer want to have anything to do with your union,” the letter ends.
Following Mr. Trump’s move, the union announced it was issuing a permanent re-joining ban on Mr Trump. The union’s resolution on the above issue was passed during the Zoom meeting on February 6.
“Preventing Donald Trump from re-joining SAG-AFTRA is not just an iconic move,” SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris said in a statement. “It is a resounding statement that threatening or inciting harm to other members will not be tolerated. An attack against one person is an attack against all ”.
“The actions of Donald J. Trump to undermine the peaceful transition of power in the United States and undermine the public provision of honest information by attacking journalists are flawed. with the values expressed by SAG-AFTRA and the members of SAG-AFTRA.
We realize that any future re-entry by Donald J. Trump will not be in the union’s best interests. Therefore, any future application for SAG-AFTRA by Donald J. Trump will be rejected. ”
Below is the full text of the letter Mr. Trump sent to the SAG President – Mrs. Gabrielle Carteris.
“To Mrs. Carteris:
Today I wrote her a letter about my so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing to revoke my union membership. Who cares about that!
Although I don’t know what her union does, I am very proud of my roles in films like “Staying at Home Alone 2,” “Zoolander” and “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. “; and TV shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Live; and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice – I just mentioned a few!
I’ve also helped a lot for the cable TV news business (supposedly a dying platform until I got into politics) and created thousands of jobs for networks like MSDNC and Fake News CNN (Fake News CNN), among many others.
With things like that, but I am seeing your blatant effort to get the media’s attention to distract from your poor performance as a union. Her organization did little to support its members and did nothing for me other than charging fees and promoting dangerous policies and ideas that do not represent America, as evidenced by the unemployment rate. towering and constant lawsuits from famous actors, someone even filmed videos and asked, “Why isn’t the union fighting for me?”
Those are policy failures. Her introduction of discipline was an even more serious setback.
I no longer want to have anything to do with your union.
Therefore, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation from SAG-AFTRA. You didn’t do anything for me.
President Donald Trump. “
