Rihanna rarely minces words when it comes to her personal politics and has been vocal about her distaste for the President in the past. The singer took to Instagram to share an image of herself, alongside members of FentyCorp as well as actress Dascha Polanco, holding up a special edition tee from her second Fenty collection with word "Immigrant" scrawled across the front. The post's caption was even more direct, as she tagged the President's Instagram handle with a waving emoji.


This post came on the heels of Trump's announcement via Twitter that he would delay the planned ICE deportation raids for two weeks in order for Republicans and Democrats to "get together and work out a solution" for immigration policy enforcement. According to CNN, the deportations will affect around 2,000 migrant families and were set to start this weekend.

Rihanna has spoken about her experiences as a woman who immigrated from her native Barbados to the United States, always maintaining pride in her background and sympathizing with other immigrants and their experiences. "Wherever I go, except for Barbados, I'm an immigrant. I think people forget that a lot of times," she said at the release party for her collection. "But I think it's important for people to remember, if you love me, everyone out here is just like me. A million Rihannas out there, getting treated like dirt."

In 2018, the singer reportedly sent a cease and desist to the Trump administration over the use of her song, "Don't Stop The Music" at midterm election rallies, tweeting she would never be at or around any of those "tragic rallies".
