Add world-renowned ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov to the list of artists who’ve come out against Donald Trump and his quest for the White House.
The 68 year old defected to the U-S from the Soviet Union in 1974 and says Trump’s rhetoric reminds him of the Soviet Union of his youth. He calls Trump a “dangerous totalitarian opportunist.”
After defecting, Baryshnikov went on to lead the American Ballet Theatre and to co-found the White Oak Dance Project. He also acted in the film “The Turning Point” and on the TV series “Sex and the City.”
