Oscar-winning actor George Clooney slammed Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump's comments on Mexicans as "idiotic."
"Anybody who says as intolerant words as those should be laughed at — and that’s pretty much what history will do," Clooney said Saturday at a news conference at the Toronto Film Festival, The Guardian reports.
Clooney, cautioning that he was wary of being too specific about his political views, was at the festival to discuss his new film as producer, "Our Brand in Crisis."
The film is a political thriller starring Sandra Bullock, the Guardian reports.
Trump made his disparaging remarks about Mexican illegals in his June campaign announcement. He remains No. 1 in the polls among the 16 candidates vying for the Republican nomination.
Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who sparred with Trump over the comments and border security, dropped out of the running on Friday.
