Salma Hayek Says She’s Hopeful For the Future After Trump: ‘I Believe the Best Teacher in the World Is Your Mistakes’

Salma Hayek is no fan of President Donald Trump‘s, but she doesn’t think that the future of the United States is bleak. She recently told DuJour Magazine in an interview, “I stay hopeful because I believe the best teacher in the world is your mistakes.” She’s hopeful that “maybe we will learn a lot from what is happening. I really do think things have to go a little bit south for people to come together and bounce back in a better way. This is how I see it.”

That doesn’t mean she doesn’t think some of Trump’s actions are “terrifying.” Hayek, who was born in Mexico but is a citizen of the United States, wonders, “what do the supporters see? Every day the lies are being explained with facts, and then he says the press lied, and it’s like a parallel universe of disinformation.”

Hayek was a supporter of Hillary Clinton during the election, and in addition to disagreeing with Trump on his policies, she has some personal issues with him. Back in October, she told a Spanish-language radio show that she once told him she wasn’t interested in dating him, so he planted a National Enquirer story about her.
