“Captain America” actor Chris Evans isn’t cool with President-elect Donald Trump. The Sudbury-bred movie star has been tweeting his intense displeasure ever since The Donald was elected.

Evans first expressed outrage when Trump chose controversial Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon as his chief strategist, tweeting:

The actor, whose preferred candidate, Hillary Clinton, received an estimated 1.7 million more votes than Trump, also signaled his support for efforts to do away with the electoral college system.

Tuesday morning, Evans was at it again, this time criticizing Trump for not condemning white nationalist Richard B. Spencer. At a meeting of the National Policy Institute, which calls itself “an independent organization dedicated to the heritage, identity, and future of people of European descent in the United States, and around the world,” Spencer said “Hail Trump, hail our people, hail victory!” and raised his hand in a Nazi-like salute.
