Antonio Sabato Jr. says that Trump’s support in 2016 ruined his acting career

Because of his support for President Donald Trump, Antonio Sabato Jr. says he has had a hard time making his acting career great again.

The 48-year-old, who became one of the first entertainers to publicly support Trump in the 2016 elections, opened up to Variety how his political preferences became obstacles to his career in liberal Hollywood.

“I had to sell it all,” said Saturday in the article, published on Tuesday. “I had to pay off all my debts. I was blacklisted. “

According to the actor, all of his talented representatives abandoned him when he supported Trump in 2016. As a result, Saturday said he had to move to Florida to pursue a different career in the construction sector.

“It was terrible,” he continued. “It’s amazing. It’s a shame. It’s tough, because if you’re in that Hollywood environment and you have something to say that he doesn’t like, they’ll let you know.”

Before 2016, Sabato appeared in major soap operas such as “General Hospital”, “Melrose Place” and “The Bold and the Beautiful”.

Saturday was one of the few entertainers to speak at the July 2016 Republican National Convention. During an ABC interview that month, the actor nodded when he insisted that then President Barack Obama was “absolutely” a Muslim, doubling over one of Trump’s birther conspiracy theories.

When his acting career started to cool down, Saturday launched an unsuccessful offer for a Californian congressional seat as a Republican in 2018, but he lost to the Democrat Julia Brownley.

Saturday says ABC did a job he had lined up for a reality show after his campaign. USA TODAY contacted ABC for comment.

Speaking to a film production distribution company, he recalled Saturday, he was told, “We will never distribute a film with you because of your affiliation with the president.”

“Reality is the power that makes movies happen in Hollywood – casting directors, producers, executive producers, directors – are all liberals,” he said. “They hate anyone or whatever supports this president.”

A few weeks ago, the actor claims to have called his former representatives to see if they would consider working with him again. All refused.

“It’s not a reason,” he continued. “Just no, plain and simple. They won’t touch me because it would be too difficult to find a job for me.”

Since 2016, Saturday has had 10 film roles, the most recent for an upcoming 2020 science fiction project called “Carolina’s Calling”.
