With the presidential election nearing, the divide in parties is becoming increasingly evident. You’re either for Donald Trump or completely against him and everything he stands for.
If you’re against him, you aren’t the only one, and these celebrities have distanced themselves from Trump in every way they can. Denouncing him publicly through social media, these stars have been pretty vocal about their distaste for the presidential candidate and have done everything they can to disassociate themselves from Trump and his campaign.
While it won’t be a surprise who these celebrities will vote for come election time, it is interesting to see what they say about Trump.
