NEW YORK: Clint Eastwood is stopping short of endorsing Donald Trump but says the Republican presidential candidate is "on to something."

In an interview in Esquire magazine this month, the actor-director praises Trump as a foe of political correctness and laments what he calls "the kiss-ass generation."

The 86-year-old Eastwood says today "everyone is walking around on eggshells" and that claims of racism are overused. He says growing up "these things weren't called racist."

Eastwood, who spoke at the 2012 Republican convention, urges people to "get over it." He acknowledges, however, that Trump has said "a lot of dumb things."

Eastwood's latest film "Sully" opens in September.
