George Takei, the openly gay actor who played Mr. Sulu on Star Trek, has called for Donald Trump to resign for his executive order banning Muslim refugees from entering the United States.
In a Daily News editorial, Takei wrote:
Donald Trump is the chaos President — and it’s time that he resign.
He has failed this country in less than two weeks on the job, decimating sacred American ideals and sparking momentous protests in our streets and airports.
His executive order selectively banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries as well as vulnerable refugees goes against the Constitution.
Takei went on to discuss his own history with racial discrimination. The actor was forced to live in a Japanese internment camp as a child.
