Lady Gaga has staged a protest against Donald Trump’s presidential victory at Trump Tower in New York.
Trump Tower, a gleaming 58-story skyscraper located on Fifth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, serves as the headquarters for The Trump Organization and is home to the primary penthouse condominium residence of the Republican property magnate.
The 30-year-old singer could be seen standing atop a large sanitation truck next to the tower brandishing a banner which read “love trumps hate” after the election results were announced.
Gaga, who was a firm supporter of Hillary Clinton, was reported to be weeping backstage on election night at what had planned to be the Democrat candidate’s victory party. MSNBC political correspondent said a source said Gaga and Cher were crying behind the scenes.
Gaga has shared a photo of herself clutching on to the truck’s wing mirror outside Trump Tower, saying: “I want to live in a #CountryOfKindness where #LoveTrumpsHate”.
