Lindsay Lohan: We have to join Donald Trump

BANG Showbiz

LINDSAY Lohan says President Donald Trump doesn't have it easy.

The 30-year-old actress recently participated in a Facebook Live Q & A session for the Daily Mail where she defended the new president.

"I think always in the public eye you're going to get scrutinised," she said. "He is the president - we have to join him. If you can't beat him, join him."

She urged Trump to help Syrian refugees in need.

"I want to try to get the word out to Donald Trump to bring him over here, have him see all the positive things they are doing over there and all American can do to help as well," said Lohan.

"I think it would be a positive thing for America to show their care and support, and for him to experience what it's like for these people … experience how giving Turkey has been to the refugees and how many they have welcomed in. [Prime Minister Tayyip] Erdogan has a very big heart, and his country stands by him," she also stated. "I think we all need to unite like that."

In late January, Erdogan met with Lohan and Bana Alabed, a seven-year-old Syrian girl who attracted worldwide attention by tweeting about her life in war-torn Aleppo. Previously in October 2016, Lohan visited government-run refugee camps near Turkey's border with Syria.

Lohan also admitted to the outlet that she hasn't converted to Islam, but didn't completely rule it out.

"I've studied the Koran for quite some time," she said. "It's a process to convert to anything. I respect all religions … it's a beautiful religion and I am a very spiritual person … it's something I've been studying. You can't just convert overnight to a religion."

"Anything's possible; this is more of a personal journey," added Lohan, who revealed how she was scared to return to the United States due to her personal beliefs. "A lot of different religions and spiritualties appeal to me."
