Sir Patrick Stewart recently announced that Logan would be his final time playing Professor Charles Xavier. But he’s found something to keep himself busy already. He wants to become a US citizen just to fight Donald Trump.

The 76 year-old, in a recent interview with The View, shared that he wants to “fight, fight, oppose, oppose,” reports CNN.

“You know, we have our own problems. We have Brexit. But I’m not a (US) citizen. However, there is, maybe it’s the only good thing as the result of this election, I am now applying for citizenship. Because I want to be an American, too,” he said.

The X-Men star added, “Because all of my friends in Washington said there’s only one thing you can do: fight, fight, oppose, oppose. But I can’t do it because I’m not a citizen.”

The response came when the actor was quizzed about the tweet he wrote last month, which read, he had the worst sleep of his life as he was sleeping less than 300 yards away from where Donald Trump sleeps.

Recently, television host Oprah Winfrey also hinted that she might join run for president in 2020.
