‘The Flash’ Actor Tony Todd Slams Trump’s Phase Out of DACA

Actor Tony Todd may play a villain on CW’s “The Flash,” but he’s got a heart in real life, which is something that some may not think Donald Trump has after his latest program cut.

Trump’s administration is beginning to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, something enacted in 2012 by President Barack Obama through an executive order. DACA provides protections for children who came to the U.S. illegally with their parents. Todd says Trump’s plan is “ridiculous.”

“[Eight hundred thousand] people [going to] colleges, doing productive things in the world,” Todd says to TMZ Tuesday, Sept. 5, of the action. “[Trump] knows, everyone else knows. … Is it necessary? I mean, we have so many other problems … [in] our country.”

Todd hopes things don’t come down to a nuclear war.

“Any war on our planet doesn’t just affect America or North Korea,” he says. “It affects [the] quality of life worldwide.

“Peace, not abuse of power,” Todd adds.
