CANNES, France: George Clooney is insisting that Donald Trump will not be elected president, promising that "fear is not going to be something that drives" the United States.

Clooney spoke to reporters Thursday at the Cannes Film Festival where he stars in Jodie Foster's hostage thriller, "Money Monster." Clooney, who has been a prominent fundraiser for Hillary Clinton, was insistent that Trump will not win.
"There's not going to be a President Trump," Clooney said. "That's not going to happen."

The actor said that Trump is partially a result of the collision of news and entertainment depicted in "Money Monster." In it, Clooney plays a Jim Cramer-like financial guru taken hostage live on the air by a distraught investor.
