Banks recently announced that she’s going to vote for Donald Trump in the American elections because “he’s evil, like America.”

Writing on Twitter, Banks outlined her reasoning, saying she thinks Trump is “the only one who truly has the balls to bust up big business”, criticising Democrats rival Hillary Clinton as being “too tied in with them” and left-leaning candidate Bernie Sanders as having “no clout”.

“I only trust this country to be what it is: full of shit,” she continued. “Takes shit to know shit so we may as well, put a piece of shit in the White House”.
