He certainly is thinking outside the “progressive box.”
Morgan Freeman cast his vote for Hillary Clinton in the election, but he is ready to give President Donald Trump a chance.
The 79 year-old actor sees qualities in Trump that will make him a “good president” and he is hanging on to that hope.

“As for politics today, I supported Hillary in the election, and now it feels like we are jumping off a cliff,” Freeman said in an interview with AARP The Magazine. “We just have to find out how we land. I’m not scared though.”

The Oscar-winning actor, who has played a president twice – in “Deep Impact” and “Olympus Has Fallen,” endorsed Clinton in the 2016 presidential campaign and even narrated a campaign ad for the former Democratic nominee.
He did not support or vote for Trump, but Freeman is staying optimistic about the prospect of a former reality star and real estate billionaire in the White House.
“I’m holding out hope that Donald Trump has to be a good president. He can’t not be,” Freeman told AARP in its cover story.
“What I see is a guy who will not lose,” he said.
