Donald Trump claims Scotland loves him! "No we f*****g don't," says Dr Who star David Tennant
Tennant was also irked by President Donald Trump’s confusion of Great Britain and England. Trump had implied that the two names were synonymous.
Actor David Tennant definitely had a lot to say about US President Donald Trump when he attended a talk show called 'The Last Leg', a British Late Night show hosted by Adam Hills, Alex Brooker, and Josh Widdicombe. Tennant described the accusations that the president had allegedly made about the press and said he was "horrified." The actor is known for his performance as Doctor on 'Doctor Who', Barty Crouch Jr. in 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire', and Kilgrave in Marvel's 'Jessica Jones'.
On the sets of the talk show, he was very vocal about his opinion of the Trump administration saying that he found it dangerous and the beginning of a totalitarian governance. He added that he hoped the mid-term elections put Democrats back in power. He also got a massive inflow of support on Twitter after he responded to Trump's claims that Scotland loved him saying "Can I say, on behalf of the Scottish nation, we f***ing don’t!"
Tennant was also irked by President Donald Trump’s confusion between Great Britain and England. Trump had implied that the two names were synonymous and Tennant who hails from Scotland had something to say about it. After this explosive interview, one fan tweeted to him saying, "Really looking forward to the President's tweet about how terrible & overrated an actor David Tennant is. And how Matt Smith was the better Doctor."

During his presidential campaign in 2016, Trump had tweeted that Scotland, like America, played no games. He had said, "Just arrived in Scotland. Place is going wild over the vote. They took their country back, just like we will take America back. No games!" He appeared to be referring to the notion that Scotland was in support of Brexit.
Responding to this claim from the time, Tennant said, "When he was over here and he was talking about England and he was saying 'I’m going out to Scotland for my golf course in Scotland cause people in London are protesting but obviously [in] Scotland they really like me." Just last month, on his visit to London, the president had confessed that he had felt "unwelcome" after the Trump Baby blimp fiasco. "I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London. I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?" The Sun reported.
