Lady Gaga stages protest outside Trump Tower

The singer was photographed demonstrating outside Donald Trump’s headquarters in the early hours of this morning

Lady Gaga has been an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton throughout this year’s US presidential campaign, and after Trump's astonishing success last night the singer has made a public stand once more. The loyal democrat was photographed protesting outside the Trump Tower in the early hours of this morning.

Standing on a sanitation truck while holding a sign that read ‘Love Trumps Hate’, the singer tweeted that she “wants to live in a #CountryOfKindness where #LoveTrumpsHate”.

According to reports, she had been in tears while backstage at Clinton’s election party earlier in the evening. Gaga regularly pledges her support against victim blaming, sexism in the music industry, and provides hope in times of adversity and prejudice – especially for the LGBTQ community, within which she holds a large following. 

She has been one of the many high-profile personalities to lend a voice to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, giving a speech at her rally last week. During the speech she spoke of Clinton’s experience, and of the credentials that made her fit to run as the US president. “She kept going and she kept fighting for women's rights,” she said. “She kept fighting for the care of our children. She kept fighting for those that are in need”.  

“We are stronger together. And what I see in this remarkable woman is that she is ready to restore peace in this country. America is not America without its people”.
