Actor John Cusack is calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump in the midst of the worldwide coronavirus outbreak, saying that the president must be removed from power in order “to save lives.”

The Say Anything actor tweeted Tuesday that he wants to see labor strikes as well as the impeachment of President Trump. “We need to remove Trump from power to save lives,” the Hollywood star wrote. “Impeach him again.”

John Cusack joins filmmaker Rob Reiner, who has also called for President Trump’s removal from office as the coronavirus outbreak continues to grip the world.

Reiner tweeted earlier this month: “We will get through this. But unfortunately not with the help of this President. First he must be removed from the public square to let competent experts take over, then he must be removed from office to allow US to heal.”

Cusack, who endorsed Bernie Sanders as the Democratic presidential nominee, recently told President Trump to “rot in hell” for  scolding an NBC News reporter during a White House press conference on the coronavirus pandemic. The High Fidelity star was reacting to a testy exchange between President Trump and NBC News White House correspondent Peter Alexander.

The 2012 star also demanded Trump’s ouster last May in a series of tweets that saw the actor pushing for the president’s impeachment.

“Trump needs to be removed from office,” said Cusack.
