“What period of history are we talking about? Jim Crow? Slavery? Plantation masters?” Pine asked. “And this is not to hate on the country in which I live, which I love, obviously, dearly.”

Pine said America has had “problems for ever and ever and ever.”

Wright, who plays fictional President Claire Underwood on “House of Cards,” said Trump should have specified what “great” era in American history he was referring to.
