Alicia Machado, Ricky Martin, Residente & More Latin Artists React to Donald Trump's Election Win

Billboard

American citizens and people all over the world watched as Donald Trump slowly collected enough electoral votes to become the next president of the United States in the early morning of Nov. 9.

After Donald Trump was officially declared as the winner of the 2016 presidential elections, Latin acts such as Alicia Machado, who was personally attacked by the Republican nominee after he called her Miss Piggy during her Miss Universe win in 1996, Calle 13's Residente and Carla Morrison took to social media to express their shock at the result. 


 

Alicia Machado: "We are here, still strong and standing. This has not finished. Hate is not necessary. I'm a proud democrat and Venezuelan but today I am with my country." 

Aquí seguimos Fuertes y de pie! Esto no termina, el odio no es necesario,demócrata,orgullosa de ser venezolana pero hoy estoy con mi país----

Jesse Y Joy's Joy Huerta: "Those of us who voted can say that we did what we possibly could to help this country. Whoever it was we voted for we did because we thought it'd be the best option. Whatever happens tonight we can still try to help not only this country, but the world too, one at the time starting with you and me."

 

Los que votamos podemos decir que hicimos lo posible para mejorar a este país. Por quien sea que hayamos pensamos que sería la mejor opción. Pase lo que pase esta noche nosotros podemos seguir haciendo lo posible para mejorar este país y este mundo uno a la vez, empezando por ti y por mi. **** Those of us who voted can say that we did what we possibly could to help this country. Whoever it was we voted for we did because we thought it'd be the best option. Whatever happens tonight we can still try to help not only this country, but the world too, one at the time starting with you and me. #ElectionDay ----

Calle 13's Residente: "Trump is the reflection of a society that for the first time will see its reflection in a mirror while the world laughs of pity ..." 

Trump es el reflejo de una sociedad que por primera vez se verá en un espejo mientras el mundo se ríe, pero con lástima...
