The “Inferno” star acknowledged that the U.S. had endured a “rough year” and felt “anxious and conflicted” and “scared” about “what’s gonna happen next.”

But “you’re gonna be fine,” Hanks reassured the country.

“All I came in here to say is you are great,” he said, before trying to boost morale by reeling off a list of the nation’s accomplishments.

In reference to the upcoming election, he said he knew America will “make the right choice” ― as long as it thinks with its hearts and minds “and not so much down there.”

Hanks ended the heart-to-heart by urging the country to pick itself up, dust itself off “and go show the world what else you can stuff inside a pizza crust.”
