Beyoncé, JLO, Jay Z, Kim Kardashian and Ellen are just a few of the big names who have recently publicly announced ‘I’m with her’, potentially influencing votes of millions of fans.

Secretary Hillary Clinton was welcomed on stage by Beyoncé this weekend, with both Beyoncé and her husband Jay Z delivering meaningful and emotional speeches on why they are both ‘with her’.

Whilst Trump highlighted how ‘degrading’ Jay Z had been over the years, making reference to his bad language during his concerts, whilst apparently forgetting how many expletives regularly feature in his twitter posts, Donald Trump is also unhappy with Jennifer Lopez and TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who have also endorsed Hillary Clinton so publicly.

He has made many unsubstantiated suggestions that the election is being rigged, after claiming he would not immediately accept the election result if he were to lose.

The Republican nominee, who was speaking at a rally in Reno, Nevada, after Beyoncé and Jay Z publicly endorsed his Democratic rival at an event in Cleveland, suggested this was in some way ‘cheating the race’.

Speaking to the Nevada audience, trump said “One quick notice, we didn’t bring any so-called stars along ― we didn’t need them,” he said. “The reason Hillary has to do that is, nobody comes for her. She can’t fill a room. That’s almost like a form of cheating, right?”

In a poll lead by the New York Times, 64% of voters said that celebrities should be able to publicly announce who they are supporting, but many users on Twitter disagreed with statements made by the high profile individuals.
