Actor Robert Redford says thereâ€™s no point in impeaching President Trump, if we donâ€™t have no planet left to live on.
Breitbart reported that Redford wrote in a recent op-ed for TIME that political controversies and agendas like impeaching President Donald Trump and admitting refugees wonâ€™t matter if climate change destroys the planet.
In the piece, titled â€œDonâ€™t Fall for Political Distractions. Saving Our Planet Must Come First,â€� Robert Redford writes, â€œCollusion, obstruction of justice, impeachment or not, greedy tax breaks, medical care for all or none, refugees seeking compassion at our borders â€” as a citizen, I care deeply about all these things.â€�

Hollywood actor and director Robert Redford says impeaching President Trump doesnâ€™t matter very much â€œwithout a planet to live on.â€�
The 82-year-old veteran actor made the clarion call to put climate change activism at the top of the list on everyoneâ€™s agenda in an Earth Day op-ed for TIME.com.
The No. 1 priority for combatting climate change is to elect leaders who oppose it.
Redford said President Trump â€œhas made terrible decisions followed by worse decisionsâ€� like promising to withdraw from the Paris Agreement or appointing â€œclimate change deniers to head the EPA,â€� among others.
â€œNothing stands in our way but ourselves,â€� the Hollywood actor concluded.
Redford pointed to voting early this year in another op-ed for the Washington Post, asking young people to make Trump a one-term president in 2020.
â€œWe have a president who degrades everything he touches, a person who does not understand (or care?) that his duty is to defend our democracy,â€� he said, in part.
In August, Redford told Entertainment Weekly he planned to retire after starring in the film â€œThe Old Man & the Gun.â€�
â€œNever say never, but I pretty well concluded that this would be it for me in terms of acting,â€� he told EW at the time, â€œand [Iâ€™ll] move towards retirement after this â€™cause Iâ€™ve been doing it since I was 21.â€�
