Did actress Uma Thurman say "Trump is the best president in U.S. history and we must respect him"? No, that's not true: it is just one of many fake celebrity quotes being pushed out by various foreign sites looking to cash in on gullible Trump supporters by bombarding them with advertising once they click through to their website. Thurman never uttered the quote as far as we could determine.
The quote recently reappeared in an article published by a website named Viralitythings on July 4, 2018 titled "Uma Thurman Says Trump Is The Best President in U.S. history and We Must Respect Him. Do You Support This?" (archived here) which opened:
President Trump has headlined four big rallies in the first months of his presidency to tout his agenda and savage his foes. A new $1.5 million television ad campaign promotes his accomplishments and attacks the media.
The flurry of activity to build support for Trump's policies isn't organized by the White House but springs from his re-election campaign, which filed paperwork allowing him to begin raising and spending money on Jan. 20, the same day he took the oath of office.

The rest of the story doesn't even mention Thurman and is basically a copy paste job of a May 7, 2017 USA Today article:
CLOSE WASHINGTON - President Trump has headlined four big rallies in the first months of his presidency to tout his agenda and savage his foes. A new $1.5 million television ad campaign promotes his accomplishments and attacks the media.
The article did come with an embedded video but it is just a robot voice reading out the article mixed in with some random images of a news presenter reading an article.
The description of the video names a site at "thenewsexpress24.com" as the source but it is no longer active.
