President Trump is so cruel, that he has managed to convince one of the most powerful voices in pop culture to speak out against him.
Singer Selena Gomez called on her 126 million social media followers to contact the White House and their members of Congress, to oppose Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
“My definition of a dreamer is someone that thinks big and believes anything is possible,” said Gomez in a post to social media, “The wonderful people being threatened by the unfortunate reversal of DACA are exactly that. Please call The White House, your local member of Congress and state Senators to let your voice be heard to defend DACA!”
Selena Gomez’s father is of Mexican decent, clearly making this a more personal issue for her. Her Instagram account currently has more followers than any other social media account online with 126 million people.
She has an immensely powerful platform, to say the least. At this time, her DACA post has 891,730 likes, so she is absolutely having an impact.
Trump is in serious trouble of experiencing massive levels of backlash if other celebrities join Gomez’s decision to speak out against him, so let’s be sure to give them incentive to do so by spreading Selena’s message.
