Star Trek legend Patrick Stewart isn’t too keen on United States President Donald Trump.

The X-Men and Star Trek actor just recently went on an interview with Variety to help promote his new series, Star Trek: Picard, and during the discussion with the entertainment news outlet, Stewart decided to share his thoughts on Brexit and Trump, two things that tie into the story and theme of his new show.

Stewart was asked by the publication which he thought had a more difficult political situation, Britain or the United States. The actor couldn’t really decide, though he does think his home country is more f-ed than the US.

“I’m not sure which one of us is in the most trouble,” Stewart replied, “I think it’s actually the U.K. I think we’re f—ed, completely f—ed.”

In the interview, Stewart points to studies discussing the possibility of decades-long economic damage that is going to come by the U.K.’s looming exit from the European Union.

Of course, the US has its issues too, something which the actor openly expresses.

“There is a time limit to your f-ed up state, which is four years away,” the actor says, going on, saying that he hopes that “the United States that has given us the Trump administration” can change for the better.

Stewart is returning to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard in CBS Access’ brand new series, a return made 16 years after his last appearance in the science fiction franchise.

Star Trek: Picard is set to premiere on January 23, 2020.
