Actor Steven Seagal said he is mulling a run for Arizona governor, contending America’s “biggest problem” is “open borders.”
“Joe Arpaio and I were talking about me running for governor of Arizona,” he said. “I would remotely consider it, but I would have a lot of other responsibilities that may be more important to address.”
The martial arts expert made the comments about a possible bid for the state’s highest office to KNXV-TV in a video published Friday.
In the same interview, Seagal commented on what he thinks poses the most risk to the U.S.
“Believe it or not, I believe it is open borders,” he said.
“I think our biggest problem is open borders, Seagal continued. “I think across these borders any kind of terrorism can come and does come and I think this is a tremendous oversight by the current administration. I think that it’s a crime and I think we should really be paying attention to our borders.”
