Donald Trump said that he was full steam ahead for busing legal refugees who cross the southern U.S. border to sanctuary cities. He called the refugees dangerous “animals not people,” according to BBC. POTUS said that he was doing it as punishment. However, the mayors turned the tables on him by welcoming these people, who are fleeing untold violence in their Central American countries. What does Cher have to do with all of this?
Actor and musician Cher had a problem with the sanctuary city solution, though. She noted that her city of Los Angeles was not taking care of the “50,000+ citizens who live on the streets.” She added that many of them were veterans:
‘I Understand Helping struggling Immigrants, but MY CITY (Los Angeles) ISNT TAKING CARE OF ITS OWN. WHAT ABOUT THE 50,000+‘Citizens WHO LIVE ON THE STREETS. PPL WHO LIVE BELOW POVERTY LINE, & HUNGRY? If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own (Many Are VETS) How Can it Take Care Of More’
Then, instead of doing the people’s business, Trump jumped onto Cher’s words, saying that he “finally agree(s):”

The Washington Post columnist John Wagner wrote that conservative commentator Ben Shapiro made a notable comment:
‘Wow Trump made Cher into a Republican.’
Then, Donald Trump Jr. offered his opinion:

Cher does not like Trump. In fact, she has referred to him as the “world’s newest dictator.” The singer came down hard on Trump banning transgender people from serving openly in the military services. Wagner wrote about Cher blasting Trump:
‘In another recent tweet, Cher blasted Trump’s ban on transgender people serving openly in the military, calling it vindictive and saying Trump was “Pandering 2 His Rightwing Base.” She was been critical of numerous other Trump policies.’
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Trump was “looking at all options” to deal with the refugees, when she appeared on Fox News Sunday. She said sending them to sanctuary cities was not an “ideal solution.”
