Donald Trump’s Republican National Convention speech on July 21 was as offensive and outrageous as anyone could imagine, and tons of celebs have called out Trump for claiming he’s the sole individual with the ability to fix our country, stumbling over the term ‘LGBT’ and more. Check out tweets from Chloe Grace Moretz, Sophia Bush, and more stars who are outraged at Trump’s ranting RNC speech!
After viciously attacking Hillary Clinton and reiterating his obsession with building a wall around Mexico — same old, same old — countless celebrities took to Twitter to slam Trump and his speech. “Not surprised, bt just as disappointed as always by the messaging by @realDonaldTrump tonight, together we can actually support one another,” Chloe Grace Moretz tweeted. “If he loses the election, you will never again have to be yelled at by trump for this long. Do your patriotic duty, America,” John Legend agreed. Plus, Sophia Bush pointed out that Trump speaking about LGBT rights seemed totally unnatural: “I am actually, literally LOLing at Trump attempting to say the LGBTQ acronym out loud for (obvi) the first time. You’re not our ally bro,” she declared. Check out more reactions below:
Trump: “I alone can fix this.”

This speech by Donald Trump is horrifying. Irresponsible. Dangerous. Hateful. Garbage.

How much of what Trump is saying is something that truly exists, happens, or has happened…(aka fact)?

One group fought to bring us marriage equality. Another group is fighting passionately to "save Christmas." Just stating some facts.

In Trump’s 75-minute speech, he officially accepted the GOP’s presidential nomination before thanking his family, chanting “USA” and promising to “make America great again”. Naturally, he also reminded the crowd that his voice is the only one that matters. “I am your voice…So to every parent who dreams for their child, and every child who dreams for their future, I say these words to you tonight: I’m with you, I will fight for you, and I will win for you,” he said. That “I am your voice” comment may be the creepiest thing we’ve ever heard, and that’s saying something, considering that every other thing out of Trump’s mouth is horrifying. As Olivia Wilde put it: “#NOTMYVOICE.”
