In an interview on “The View,” actor Patrick Stewart said he is applying to become a U.S. citizen in order to help fight back against President Trump.

While recounting a recent visit to Washington, D.C., Stewart said he had “the worst night’s sleep for years and years and years,” joking that Trump might have been to blame.

Stewart referenced his tweet to “The View” hosts, calling it “fairly innocent” and saying he “did not directly insult your president.”

{mosads}“Not mine,” Whoopi Goldberg said in response.

When host Joy Behar asked if the English actor would be willing to take Trump off America’s hands, Stewart joked, “We have our own problems.”

“I’m not a [U.S.] citizen,” Stewart said. “However, there is, maybe it’s the only good thing, as the result of this election: I am now applying for citizenship. Because I want to be an American, too.”

“All of my friends in Washington said, ‘There is one thing you can do. Fight, fight, oppose, oppose,’ ” Stewart said.
