What Laurence Fishburne Thinks President Trump Can Learn from Nelson Mandela

Laurence Fishburne is gearing up to play the late South African anti-apartheid revolutionary Nelson Mandela in BET's miniseries “Madiba”… but what does he think President Trump could learn from the iconic leader?

While speaking with “Extra’s” AJ Calloway, the 55-year-old said, "If there was anything that President Trump could learn from someone like Madiba, it would be the art of statesmanship.”

When talking about the magnitude of the character, he shared, "There are very few people that you get to play, as an actor, of his size.” He added, "It's a huge responsibility and an honor.”

Catch Fishburne in the three-part miniseries “Madiba” beginning February 1 on BET.
