The star accepts Trump, but is proceeding with caution
As many are still coming to terms with the presidential election results, Miley Cyrus was especially affected by the news. The star – who was an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton – believes she “deserves to be the first female president” someday.
She took to Twitter to share a video reflecting on the results, saying: “I’ve been very vocal for my support for everyone besides Donald Trump. Heavily supported Bernie [Sanders]. Heavily supported Hillary. And I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president. That’s what makes me so sad.
I just wish that she had that opportunity, because she’s 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.”
The singer then admitted she accepts Donald Trump as president, despite not being her favorite.
She continued: “Happy hippies, we adjust and we accept everyone for who they are. And so Donald Trump, I accept you.” She went on to ask for him to respect others, as this will be the best way to gain people’s trust.
“And this hurts to say, but I even accept you as the President of the United States, and that’s fine, that’s fine because I think now I want to be a hopeful hippie. But please just treat people with love and treat people with compassion and treat people with respect and I will do the same for you.”
Miley ended the video by thanking Hillary for her work and for trying her very best, adding: “Thank you Hillary for inspiring all of us.”
