Miley Cyrus Reacts To Donald Trump Elected President: “I Accept You” (VIDEO)
A teary-eyed Miley Cyrus posted a video Wednesday morning showing her emotional reaction to Donald Trump winning the presidential election. The singer, an avid supporter of Hillary Clinton, acknowledged she “accepted” the results and even had a personal message for Trump himself. Watch below.
“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,” a solemn Cyrus said into the camera. “And I do want to say that I’ve been very vocal for my support for everyone besides Donald Trump. I heavily supported Bernie. I heavily supported Hillary and I still think that in her lifetime she deserves to be the first female president.” The singer began crying as she added, “And that’s what makes me so sad. I just wish she had that opportunity because she’s fought for so long and because I believe her when she says she loves this country.”
Cyrus continued, “This is all she’s ever done. She’s given her life to make it better. But, like Donald Trump so ironically played after his speech, you can’t always get what you want. And happy hippies, we adjust and we accept everyone for who they are.” She went on to assert, “And so, Donald Trump I accept you. I even accept you as president of the United States and that’s fine. That’s fine because I think now I want to be a hopeful hippie.” The singer went on to thank President Barack Obama “for everything you’ve done in these past eight years,” before relaying a personal and heartfelt plea to our future president. “Please just treat people with love, and treat people with compassion, and treat people with respect,” she told Trump. “And I will do the same for you.”
The singer further offered to have a personal dialogue with Trump to help him better “understand people that don’t think the same way that you and some of the people that support you do.” She added, “If you want to open your mind and you want to open your heart, I would love to give you a key.” Cyrus ended by saying, “Thank you Hillary for inspiring all of us.” Watch the video below.
