BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Action movie star Jean-Claude Van Damme says that America needs to be run like a business – and right now we need Donald Trump.

TMZ recently spoke to the martial arts star Friday night in Beverly Hills. Van Damme said the first order of business should be establishing a relationship with Vladimir Putin.

“America is strong and Russia is strong. So they have to shake hands,” said Van Damme, who starred in “Bloodsport” and “Hard Target.”

The actor also said it is not uncommon for people to use “locker room talk.”

“Do you know how many guys I know who say the word P-U-S-S-you-know-what many, many times a day?” Van Damme said. “Guys, you are talking about the wrong things in politics.”

The Belgium-born actor went on to say that “Right now we need Donald Trump.”
