Ariana Grande just took a brutal shot at Trump in the record-breaking music video she released

Pop superstar Ariana Grande has finally released her highly anticipated new music video, Thank U Next, and took a political jab at President Donald Trump and his xenophobic anti-immigration campaign with a telling scene.

The video includes a shot of Grande reading a book labeled “Immigration and Refugee Law and Policy” by Stephen Legomsky and Cristina Rodríguez, an obvious reference to the President’s efforts to strip refugees of their ability to apply for political asylum and the recent tear gas attacks by Border Patrol officers against refugee families in San Ysidro, California.

This isn’t the first time the record-breaking singer has taken a political stance against Trump. On the cursed election night in 2016, she posted “Well this is utterly terrifying” as the results came in and followed it up with “I am in tears” when he won.

She’s aligned herself with the Black Lives Matter movement and anti-gun advocates, rejecting calls from some to “stay out of politics and just sing:”

“There’s a lot of noise when you say anything about anything. But if I’m not going to say it, what’s the f*cking point of being here? Not everyone is going to agree with you, but that doesn’t mean I’m just going to shut up and sing my songs. I’m also going to be a human being who cares about other human beings; to be an ally and use my privilege to help educate people” said Grande to Elle magazine earlier this year.
