Facing Expulsion, Trump Resigns from SAG-AFTRA

Donald Trump resigned from the Screen Actors Guild amidst a decision by SAG-AFTRA leadership to try and expel him.

The Screen Actors Guild is the union for US performers on film and television. SAG-AFTRA decided to begin the process of expulsion for Trump after the Capitol breach, saying that Trump had allowed “a reckless campaign of misinformation aimed at discrediting and ultimately threatening the safety of journalists, many of whom are SAG-AFTRA members.”

The former president wrote a letter to Gabrielle Carteris, national president of SAG-AFTRA, informing them that he would be revoking his membership to the guild. Trump cited many of his appearances in film, including Home Alone 2, Zoolander, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, as well as his TV series, The Apprentice.

Trump would go on to say that the guild “has done little for its members, and nothing for me. I no longer wish to be associated with your union.” The letter would go on to formally resign Trump from the union. 

SAG-AFTRA offered a two word response; “Thank you.”
