An explanation as to why the cusses in this video are not directed at Trump
American actor Samuel L. Jackson, along with many other artists, is an active participant in the campaign organized by HeadCount to encourage Americans to register to vote for the 2020 election.
This organization, which defines itself as non-partisan, wants to use the power of Hollywood and music to get people to register to vote and to participate in the democratic process. Every year, they organize drives to get out the vote, and more than 1,000 musical events have been organized since 2004 to get over 600,000 people to register.
Famous people of all types have been taking part on social media with the #goodtovote hashtag, using it to ask their followers to register. If enough people do, they promise to give them a reward.
In the case of Samuel L. Jackson, if 2500 people registered at the HeadCount site, he’d show them how to “cuss in 15 different languages”.

He got it, and followed through with no delay. He recorded a video showing him how to say and spell a cuss word in fifteen different languages. And the first one up: Basque.
Honestly, this is a great way to use a language: encouraging participation in the responsibilities we all share as citizens.
