Trump wrote an extremely on-brand letter to resign from SAG-AFTRA before he could be kicked out

Former President Donald Trump, a self-described "very smart guy," has outfoxed the Screen Actors Guild by resigning before the union's disciplinary committee could kick him out.

"I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!" wrote Trump in an extremely on-brand letter to SAG-AFTRA president (and former Beverly Hills, 90210 actress) Gabrielle Carteris.
