"I'm thrilled to be in North Carolina because North Carolina is going to really matter," Washington said.
"Here in North Carolina, you're voting on senator, governor and president," Washington said. "You're also voting on local, state reps ... there's so many races and all of those people have an impact on the decision that impacts your life."
Erin Perrine, Director of Press Communications for President Trump, said celebrities like Washington are too out of touch to appeal to everyday people.
"Hollywood doesn't represent America and it doesn't represent North Carolinians, that's for sure," Perrine said.
"North Carolina was a huge part of the victory in 2016, and it will be again in 2020," Perrine said. "It's part of our strategy in the campaign to protect the 2016 map and expand the opportunity."
