Miley Cyrus is sharing her reaction to the news that Donald Trump was elected the next president.
The 24-year-old singer, who has been a big supporter of Hillary Clinton, took to social media to post a video tearfully pleading for love and compassion following the election results.
“So, probably like most people – well, maybe not, because given the result – maybe I really am different and maybe a lot of people that I’m surrounded by think with open minds and open hearts like I do,” she began.
Miley cotinued, “I still think that, in [Hillary's] lifetime, she deserves to be the first female president, and that’s what makes me so sad. I wish she had an opportunity because she fought for so long and because I believe her when she says that she loves this country. This is all she’s ever done; she’s given her life to make it better.”
She later added, “Hopefully we adjust and we accept everyone for who they are, and, so, Donald Trump, I accept you. This hurts to say, but I even accept you as President of the United States, and that’s fine, because, now, I want to be a hopeful hippie. I want to be hopeful that you will step in, too.”
Miley also took to her Instagram to write a heartfelt message encouraging fans to be loving and compassionate towards one another.
Go to my Facebook to see a video of my reaction & reflection on last nights election .... If we want Donald Trump to accept us .... We must be accepting towards his presidency & his promise to "unify" our country and "make America great" .... I leave out the "again" because this country has never been able to live up to its full potential because we've been putting up our own divided walls between each other. We don't need Trump to do that for us.... So WE must take a hammer to the bricks WE built up and be more LOVING and compassionate towards all living things! (including the planet) (p.s. Mr. Elected president..... Global warming IS real. ACCEPT THAT)
