MEDIA/TRUMP POST-PRESIDENCY: “I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!
While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; and television 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 – to name just a few! […]
I no longer wish to be associated with your union.
As such, this letter is to inform you of my immediate resignation from SAG-AFTRA. You have done nothing for me.”
-Donald Trump, Letter to SAG-AFTRA president Gabrielle Carteris, Feb. 4, 2021
[Note: SAG-AFTRA is a labor union representing film and television actors, as well as other media professionals. Trump wrote the letter after the union sought to expel him for his connection to the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.]
