Actor Isaiah Washington Is Walking Away From Democratic Party, Supports Donald Trump
Though he hinted at it in earlier months, actor Isaiah Washington has officially shared his support for President Trump. The former “Grey’s Anatomy” star first flirted with the idea of joining the Republican Party in April of this year, under the pretenses that President Barack Obama didn’t do enough for the Black community. Isaiah then insinuated that Trump was making more of an effort. He tweeted:
“@IWashington I voted for 44 twice. I even checked my emails in his Senate Office while lobbying for Salone to be given another chance to rebrand. Not once in 8 years was I given any support regarding Africa or the Black Agenda, but 45 invites me to the WH to celebrate the #FirstStepAct”

He has now sat down with Fox Nation’s “Nuff Said” show telling the host that he isn’t the only figure in Hollywood to switch tickets. He said:
“You got a lot of conservative or centric libertarian-minded people that really care about other people but they are terrified to come out of the closet and say anything that’s not in line with the Democratic party…I’m going to support the policy over the person.”
"The reason I've chosen to walk away from the Democratic Party…is that something doesn't' feel right…And if I look at the political image of the Democratic Party over the last 50 years…very little has changed in my community," @IWashington told @foxnation. #WalkAway pic.twitter.com/RuZyQezUUP

Isaiah Washington feels that real change in the community starts with taking a look at what Democrats have done in the Black community. He feels that very little has changed, supporting the social media campaign, #WalkAway. He added:
“The reason I’ve chosen to walk away from the Democratic Party is that something doesn’t’ feel right…And if I look at the political image of the Democratic Party over the last 50 years very little has changed in my community.”
He continued to explain his choice on Twitter.
Isaiah Washington was fired from the ABC hit, “Grey’s Anatomy,” after using a homophobic slur in reference to a castmate.
