Lauren Jauregui, a member of Fifth Harmony, has penned a powerful open letter calling out Trump voters on what their choice says about them.

"To every single Trump supporter trying to say that voting for Trump does not mean that you are racist, homophobic, sexist, xenophobic, assholes… that you just like the way he didn't really care what people thought and just said whatever he wanted… that he wasn't a politician, so he wasn't part of the establishment and didn't have corrupt money backing him…this is for you," Jauregui wrote.

"Your words are worthless, because your actions have led to the single-handed destruction of all the progress we've made socially as a nation. You have, with your pure ignorance and refusal to understand the way the government and the world works, allowed a power-hungry business tycoon to take over," she pointed out. "You voted for a person who built an 18-month campaign off the back of your hatred. He manipulated ALL of you with such ease by speaking to the darker parts of you that had started to feel ashamed about the way you viewed the 'politically correct' world. He became your champion, because he spoke to the parts of you that think you are superior to the rest of us (just like Hitler did in Germany before the Holocaust! Just read his autobiography: Mein Kampf)".

She then explained why electing such a leader bears a lot of implications for her: "I am a bisexual Cuban-American woman and I am so proud of it," she wrote, making her a part of several demographics Trump has directly derided at one point (or many points) during the course of his campaign.

Jauregui even said that, despite having a mixed racial background, she was granted a certain amount of privilege just because her skin is of a lighter shade. And because she knows how it feels to discriminated against, she will stand up for those who were not granted that amount of "respect" just because of their skin tone.

She, then, pointed out how the United States is largely made up of immigrants and that the only ones who truly come from these lands are the Native Americans, who are still being disrespected to this day.

Jauregui wrote, "None of us belong here but all of us deserve the right to feel safe and live our lives in peace. To not have to worry about potentially dying, or being electro-shocked, or beaten, or raped, or emotionally abused because our existence and/or choices for ourselves upset someone else."

Lastly, she pointed out that "This is the world Trump is fostering. This is the division that has risen since the beginning of the campaign. We are not America indivisible any longer; we are united on two separate sides: Love and Hatred. We are not 'whining' about our presidential choice losing, we are screaming battle cries against those whose political and personal agendas threaten our lives and sanity. We are making sure you hear us, no matter how much it bothers you, we EXIST."
