Lady Gaga Protests in Front of Trump Tower as Donald Trump Is Elected President
Gaga, who campaigned with Hillary Clinton prior to Election Night and was stationed at the Javits Center with Clinton supporters including Amy Schumer and Lena Dunham as the votes were counted, relocated to Trump Tower around 2:30 a.m. EST to protest the election results. She stood on top of a sanitation truck and held a sign that read “Loves trumps hate” before riding away in a black car.
Gaga tweeted out the photo of her protesting outside of Trump’s building, writing to her followers, “I want to live in a #CountryOfKindness where #LoveTrumpsHate.”
Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States around 2:30 a.m EST on Wednesday, Nov. 9. “It is time for us to come together as one united people,” said Trump in his speech soon thereafter. “I pledge to every citizen in the land that I will be president to all Americans.”
