Daniel Radcliffe, the actor who starred as Harry Potter in the movie franchise, said his favorite conspiracy theory is that Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is running a “false flag campaign” for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, he told a British magazine in an interview published Tuesday.

“I’m not into conspiracy theories, but my recent favorite is that Donald Trump is running a false flag campaign for Hillary Clinton,” Radcliffe told The Big Issue. “If Trump was secretly working for Clinton to help her win, what would he be doing differently? He is galvanizing the crazy right-wing loony end of the Republicans, while turning away the moderates.”

Radcliffe added that he would not endorse Trump for the presidency, according to the magazine.

“And if he doesn’t get the nomination, he will run as an independent and split the vote,” Radcliffe said, according to the report. “Also, his daughter is best friends with Chelsea Clinton. So much of it makes sense.”

Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, and Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, are reportedly longtime friends.
