Angelina Jolie’s father is one of Donald Trump’s biggest celebrity supporters and has slammed the Women’s March as “very destructive”.
The 78-year-old admitted the freedom to protest is what the “First Amendment is all about” but then went on to question what were the recent marches actually about.
“[It's] been very destructive, this marching against the government and against the president,” Jon told TMZ in Beverley Hills.
“The march was against the government and against the president, trying to denigrate his office and his presidency. And that’s no good.”

“They’re teaching going up against the government, not accepting the will of the people on this presidency and it’s a very sad day when I see this.”
Jon added: “I don’t know what this Hollywood group is, I find it’s a very sad thing for me to witness what they’re doing, but they have a huge amount of influence, so anyway it’s not so good.”
