While the president praised a tweet the iconic performer posted about immigration — she questioned how sanctuary city Los Angeles could help immigrants when there are so many residents there already in need — she made her thoughts on Trump clear (as if it wasn’t).

The 72-year-old singer wrote that what the Democrats don’t understand is that while they are “playing politics,” Trump is “playing butcher your enemies” and creating “constant mayhem.”

Cher’s tweet caught the attention of “Build the Wall” Trump, a frequent target of the singer’s, who tweeted, “I finally agree with” her. Actors James Woods and Scott Baio, who are as outspoken as Cher is on political issues (though with opposing views), also took notice — as did Donald Trump Jr.
