Actor Patrick Stewart is applying for US citizenship so he can oppose President Donald Trump.

It's not clear exactly what resistance activities he plans, but Stewart told the hosts of "The View" -- including his "Star Trek: The Next Generation" costar Whoopi Goldberg -- that he wants to throw in with America as a reaction to Trump's election.

"My wife and I had gone to Washington to see good friends of ours, three different friends who are kind of Washington insiders, because we wanted to ask them, what do we do?" he said. "The first night we were in Washington, I had the worst night's sleep. It was only in the morning when I got up and drew the curtain that realized what it might be."

He shared what he described as a "fairly innocent" tweet about the incident in February.

"I did not directly insult your president," Stewart said, to which Joy Behar responded, "You want him?"

"We have our own problems," Stewart said. "We have Brexit."

Then he revealed his plan to become an American.

"I'm not a citizen ... but I am now applying for citizenship because I want to be an American, too," he said. "All of my friends in Washington said there is one thing you can do: fight, fight, oppose, oppose. But I can't do it because I'm not a citizen."
