So, Jackie wants to have a little talk with the President. If you remember, she performed at his inauguration.
“I am obviously disappointed in the @POTUS decision to send the #transgender bathroom issue to the states to decide. #sisterlove,” Jackie tweeted.
Then she wrote, “. @realDonaldTrump u gave me the honor 2 sing at your inauguration. Pls give me & my sis the honor 2 meet with u 2 talk #transgender rghts ?”
Lauren Jauregui opens up about why she’s so against the current White House administration.
The 20-year-old Fifth Harmony member explains how Donald Trump‘s words and actions have affected her personally.
“Well, I am a woman. One of [Trump's] first executive orders was to take away our rights to our bodies,” Lauren told MTV. “I am also a bisexual. His vice-president [Mike Pence] believes in conversion therapy. I am also of immigrant descent. My grandparents and my mom came from Cuba back in the ’60s because they were fleeing from communism and Castro. I wouldn’t be here otherwise. I don’t understand what’s going on right now — it just doesn’t make any sense.”
(In case you don’t know, conversion therapy is psychological treatment and/or counseling designed to change a person’s sexual orientation from homosexual or bisexual to heterosexual.)
Lauren also said, “Whoever is reading this, make sure that when you agree with everything that’s being said and when you feel passionate about your future, you take it into your hands. You do something.”

Lauren Jauregui continues to use her voice to speak out against Donald Trump.
The 20-year-old Fifth Harmony member just penned a new letter to the President, this time to oppose the controversial Muslim Ban he signed into order last week.
“Raise your hand if you are an immigrant, or the sons and daughters of immigrant parents, or the grandchildren of immigrants, or the great-grandchildren, or great-great-grandchildren?” Lauren started off the letter (via People). “Wait…are everyone’s hands up—including yours, Mr. Trump—except for the Indigenous people of the Americas?! Because they should be.”
She continued, “This country was built and continues to survive off the backs of immigrants and refugees. The term refugee in itself is such a significant word. These people are not terrorists: Many are escaping wars that we created in their lands. To tell another human being that the disastrous tortures of war are not important and to then go even a step further and insult their plight for freedom by labeling them ‘terrorists’ is just disrespectful to humanity. The only terrorism that both history and I have experienced has been at the hands of powerful White men who are willing to systematically kill and conquer without an ounce of empathy for anything but their pockets.”
“We have to realize how important this time is,” Lauren added. “My young people who understand and did not choose this for their future, the older generation who blindly chose to take this comfortable future we all envisioned away: We have never known war, we have never known the pain of discomfort, we have been privileged and promised into our moral oblivion.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Lauren’s latest open letter to Donald Trump?
In case you don’t remember, Lauren came out as bisexual late last year in another powerful letter to Trump.
Cole Sprouse is the latest star to speak out in opposition of Donald Trump.
The 24-year-old Riverdale star specifically used social media because there are still celebs who are afraid to talk politics in fear it will hurt their careers.
“Heh heh sure is hard staying your funny friend on twitter when the whole USA is falling to pieces around us heh heh,” Cole tweeted.
But in times like these, Cole points out how important it is to use your voice, especially if you’re in the spotlight.
He added, “Your brand is not in jeopardy by public opposition to Trump. Your nation is in jeopardy without it.”
In case you missed it, another young TV star, Yara Shahidi, recently spoke out about Trump‘s Muslim Ban too.

Donald Trump has pulled off a shocking victory and the American people have elected him to be the President of the United States.
The Republican candidate defeated his opponent, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, after he received a lot more support in rural areas around the country than originally expected.
The Associated Press and other outlets called the election results at around 2:36am EST on Wednesday morning (November 9).
As we got into the late hours of the night, key battleground states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin were too close to call and kept the election from being determined.
Much of the country is in disbelief over the results of the election and celebs took to Twitter throughout the night to share their shock over the vote.
ARE YOU HAPPY with the results of the presidential election?
It’s safe to say that Camila Cabello will not be voting for Donald Trump on Election Day.
The 19-year-old Fifth Harmony singer took to Instagram to post an excerpt from the Humans of NY account.
“Your voice matters, your voice makes a difference” #ElectionFinalThoughts,” Camila tweeted about it.
“There are enough of us who understand that this is not a normal election,” the post reads. “This is not a normal man. We cannot validate his lies with the authority of the presidency.”
It continues, “This election is about preventing a dangerous demagogue from becoming the most powerful man in the world…But we must vote. We must nudge each other. We must drive each other to the polls. We must make calls, and send texts, and knock on doors, and we must not allow anyone to accuse us of ‘being political.’ Because this isn’t ‘politics as usual.’”
