Even Jennifer Lawrence has changed her stance on the election, and Trump clearly solidified her decision...
via: InstagramThe thirty-year-old said: "I grew up Republican. My first time voting, I voted for John McCain. I was a little Republican."
She admitted that growing up Republican allowed her to "see the fiscal benefits of some of the Republican policies."
via: InstagramBut Lawrence later saw that "the social issues weren’t in line with [her] views" leading her to eventually "change [her] politics based on the things [she] learned."
Back in 2015, she said during an interview with Vogue: "I was raised a Republican, but I just can’t imagine supporting a party that doesn’t support women’s basic rights."
via: Instagram"It’s 2015 and gay people can get married and we think that we’ve come so far, so, yay! But have we? I don’t want to stay quiet about that stuff."
She added: "My view on the election is pretty cut-and-dried: If Donald Trump is president of the United States, it will be the end of the world."Trump being elected is what "changed everything" for her when it came to her political preference.
via: Instagram"This is an impeached president who's broken many laws and has refused to condemn white supremacy, and it feels like there has been a line drawn in the sand. I don’t think it’s right... it just changes things for me."
She referred to Trump's "stand back and standby" comment to the Proud Boys during the first presidential debate...
@realDonaldTrump Who are you fighting for? "Proud Boys, stand back and stand by!" @realDonaldTrump https://t.co/fpdCyyFwRI— Ron Pragides (@Ron Pragides)1603328726.0
