With Ted Cruz suspending his US presidential campaign, chances of Donald Trump becoming the next US President are getting worryingly close, something George Clooney and his wife Amal Clooney aren’t too happy about, with the human rights lawyer even speaking out about the Republican front-runner in a recent speech.

They are supporters largely because of her policies, which differ wildly to the policies and statements made by Donald Trump – need we remind you about the banning of Muslims going to America should he win the election?

When he said ‘they’ I think people should have been saying: ‘Do you mean the 1.5 billion people around the world who fit that description, do you mean the US citizens who are the members of your military?”
The Human rights lawyer claimed she is “perplexed” by the success of Trump in the race for the White House. Well, she’s not the only one…
