Actor Kevin Costner on Tuesday accused the Trump administration of fostering a harmful political environment, saying that he is “not recognizing America right now.”

Costner, who grew up in a Republican household and has shifted toward the Democratic Party, appeared on ABC’s “The View” to discuss his new television series “Yellowstone” on the Paramount network.

Costner proceeded to attack the Trump administration for what he described as a toxic environment.

“I’m not recognizing America right now,” Costner said. “I don’t recognize its voice. I don’t recognize any individual statements.
