Rihanna blasts Trump for tear gas assault on migrant children calling it ‘terrorism’
President Donald Trump’s inhumane assault on a group of migrants attempting to seek asylum at the US border has enraged many including superstar Rihanna who called it an act of “terrorism.”
The music and beauty mogul took to social media on Sunday and posted a picture of children and parents choking on plumes of tear gas as Board Patrol agents fired tear gas into the crowd heading toward the Mexican border.
Rihanna shared a tweet from Mexican correspondent for the Associated Press, Chris Sherman, which said:
“US Border Patrol has just launched tear gas into Mexico.
“Breeze carrying it hundreds of yards. Parents running away with choking toddlers. #migrantcaravan.”

“Terrorism,” the outspoken singer replied.
The Associated Press reported that U.S. border agents fired tear gas on hundreds of migrants protesting near the border with Mexico on Sunday after some of them attempted to get through the fencing and wire separating the two countries.
On Monday, Trump doubled down on the chaos tweeting “Mexico should move the flag waving migrants, many of whom are stone cold criminals, back to their countries.”
Trump added in his tweet: “Do it by plane, do it by bus, do it anyway you want, but they are NOT coming into the U.S.A. We will close the Border permanently if need be. Congress, fund the WALL!”
Rihanna takes on Trump
This isn’t the first time Rihanna has taken on Trump.
Trump blasted the singer’s “Please Don’t Stop the Music” at a rally in Tallahassee, stumping for Republican candidates ahead of the midterm elections.
Washington Post correspondent Philip Rucker alerted Rih Rih online about the fact that the song was being played and Trump’s supporters were throwing free tees into the crowd. The music mogul and beauty maven quickly took up the issue and declared “Not for much longer,” that her music would be played at Trump’s divisive rallies.
“Me nor my people would ever be at or around one of those tragic rallies, so thanks for the heads up Philip!”
