    She also stated observers of the Republican administration understand that President Trump had been a fool as well as racist since he assumed office. She blasts him for championing a system that is deeply entrenched in racism and that Americans were all witnesses to all the recent events that have played out. 

    She admonished Americans to express a greater love for the black community acknowledging that being white was a big privilege which she pledges to stand by. Gaga chided the white community for having not done sufficiently to end racism as well as mobilise enough support for Black Americans who are being murdered every day.

     The singer dubbed ‘gaga’ remarked that the justice system could be referred to as tragedy and that it suggests how the U.S might turn out in the long term.

    Also, The Sun reports that the highly expressive musician wrote on his Instagram page on Sunday that the voices of the African American community had not been given enough expression for too long and that silence was not one that would help America.

    She noted that no matter what blacks do to protest, they would still not get enough compassion from the same non caring political leaders who have sworn on oath to offer them protection.

    Gaga has not hidden her support for the Democrat Party as well as her preference for Hilary Clinton as president.

    Sports Mole reported earlier this week that Floyd, a 46-year old black man lost his life after being rough handled by a policeman who knelt on his neck for over 9 minutes.

    After video of the event went viral, there had been widespread demonstrations across many cities in the US, which prompted Trump to write a tweet suggesting protesters could be shot for engaging in looting and protests against the police murder of Floyd.

    Twitter removed Trump’s tweet which has sparked controversies for going against its policies for users, leading the President to hit back by suggesting that he could influence the imposition of restrictions on the operations of social network companies in America.

    News Week reports that the Chromatica music artist pushed for change as she criticised Trump for showing that he was insensitive to the plights of African Americans through his unguarded tweets. 

    Gaga’s statement precedes Taylor Swift criticism of Trump in a Twitter message on Friday. Swift called out Trump for encouraging white supremacy and racism leveraging on his presidency.
