UPDATE 11:22 AM EST: Anthony has since clarified his statement, tweeting:
Sorry Donald, that wasn├óΓé¼Γäót an endorsement. Just a bad attempt at a joke, I guess?

He’s got a crisis on his hands…
Anthony Mackie may have landed in Hollywood thanks to breakout roles in The Hurt Locker, Pain & Gain, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier, but it looks like the actor still has a thing or two to learn about fielding interview questions.
In a recent sit down, the Our Brand Is Crisis star was asked which of the current Presidential hopefuls he’d most like to work with if he were a political fixer in real life.
Well, Anthony may have been his charming self when he selected Donald Trump as his ideal candidate, but we’re really wishing he thought his answer through a little more thoroughly.
In fact, Falcon went all in on the Republican with his endorsement, saying:
“I would 100 percent want to run Trump’s campaign. 100 percent. I mean, first that’ll be the best party ever when he won, and second, Trump’s an easy sell… When you look at Trump, he’s an easy sell because you can sell him as the guy who worked his way up from nothing. And I think if you’re a ‘pull yourself up by your bootstraps’ candidate, people would identify with that.
I’m on the bandwagon. I’m drinking the Kool-Aid.”
Naturally, the internet was quick to slam Anthony for being pro-Trump — but we’re hoping he just meant the Donald’s already so open that he’d be easy to manage.
In character. And not in real life. We hope.
Although… we do agree that a Trump party would be pretty entertaining! Especially the giant golden statue of The Donald overlooking the pool! LOLz!!!
Do U think Anthony is actually #TeamTrump, or was he just having fun with his answers??
