Julianne Moore: What Donald Trump Is Doing Is 'Incredibly Detrimental'

The actress said she hasn't been impressed with the Republican National Convention thus far.

Julianne Moore spoke out against the Republican National Convention and GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Wednesday in a conversation with The Huffington Post.

The actress, who is out with a new children’s book titled Freckleface Strawberry and the Really Big Voicetold HuffPost’s Lauren Moraski that she found Tuesday’s RNC event “incredibly negative and very disappointing.”

“This ridiculous negative campaigning is not moving anything forward. I didn’t hear anyone presenting Donald Trump as a leader. What I really heard them doing was taking down Hillary Clinton. Where do you win when you’re doing something like that?” she asked. 

The actress has been outspoken about gun safety, especially after the 2012 shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, and went on to share her thoughts on Trump’s “nationalistic” rhetoric more specifically. 

“It’s a very interesting time,” she said. “I don’t know that any society has moved forward by being exclusive and nationalistic and that’s what I’m seeing Donald Trump doing. I think it’s very negative and incredibly detrimental to us as a society.”
