In a late-night tweet, Cher declared that November 3, 2020, will mark the last day of the United States as we know it.
“ONLY IMPORTANT THING IS BEATING Trump‼️ IF trump WINS 2ND TERM THERE’LL B NO [America]‼️,” Cher wrote, in an all-caps rant. “WE WONT B ABLE 2 EXACT PUNISHMENT, OR PUT HIM IN ⛓⛓4 GUTTING OUR GOV.trump PUTS RICH, CORRUPT,CRONIES IN CHARGE OF AGENCIES THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT,4.

Cher’s comments Sunday night represented an about-face from the pop singer on the subject of immigration. When the Trump administration rescinded the Obama-era Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2017, Cher offered to take a “Dreamer” into her home and encouraged others to do the same.
“Those Who Can Must Take a DREAMER In2 Their Home & Protect Them!!” she tweeted at the time. “I’m Ready [to] Do This & Others in MY BUSINESS WILL DO THE SAME. SANCTUARY,” she wrote in September of 2017.

Since President Trump was elected Cher has been outspoken against the president, and it’s rare that they agree on issues.
The streets of Los Angeles still see thousands of its residents living in poverty or experiencing homelessness, including veterans, Cher wrote on Twitter in April.
“If My State Can’t Take Care of Its Own,” Cher wondered, “How Can it Take Care Of More.”
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

Trump was quick to respond.
“I finally agree with @Cher!” he tweeted Monday.
Critics jumped on Cher’s tweet, jokingly welcoming her to the Republican party and some saying that her tweet was what they’ve been trying to say all along.
“Legal immigration OK. Illegal immigration – not OK,” one user tweeted to Cher. “Libs need to stop lecturing us about compassion and focus on economic realities.”
In response, Cher said “There must be a process,” for immigrants seeking asylum and stressed that access to judges, proper interviews and even disbursement to cities across the U.S. was necessary, rather than targeting cities for “revenge.”
“These are ppl,” Cher wrote Monday. “WE ARE SANCTUARY CITIES BECAUSE WE DONT THROW PPL 2 DOGS.”
There must be a process.Ppl who are looking 4 asylum,& Qualify,must be given access 2 judges,&properly interviewed. Then They can be sent”EVENLY” 2cities🇺🇸.Not Just THOUSANDS Bussed 2Calif,NY,Etc 4 revenge. These are ppl.WE ARE SANCTUARY CITIES BECAUSE WE DONT THROW PPL 2 DOGS

The back and forth between Cher and Trump came when the president said he was considering sending migrants to “sanctuary cities” in response to the Democrats refusal to address the crisis at the border.
At least Cher acknowledged there was a problem at the border, something the other Hollywood elite have refused to do.
