Donald Trump and Cher might not agree on much, but the U.S. president announced on Twitter on Monday that he and the singer are on the same page regarding immigration.
He tweeted that he “agrees” with Cher’s recent comments regarding supporting immigrants.
Cher is no stranger to using social media to air her political views, more often than not using her platform to criticize the current U.S. president. However, a recent tweet about immigration has been seized upon by the Trumps as showing support for the Republican party.
“I understand struggling immigrants, but my city isn’t taking care of its own,” the “Believe” hitmaker tweeted in reference to the homelessness situation in Los Angeles. “If my state can’t take care of its own (many are vets), how can it take care of more?”
Donald Trump Jr. shared the Oscar winner’s post on Instagram and sarcastically welcomed her to the Republican party.

Welcome to the Republican Party Cher!!! 🤣 These Hollywood liberals have some balls. They advocate for these insane leftist policies and open borders when they can stick the burden on you, on your towns, your schools, and your hospitals but if it starts to effect them all of a sudden they’re not so thrilled at the inflow of illegals. What hypocrisy. Remember Libs you wanted them. We offers to give them all to you. What’s the issue? Iits like #thegreennewdeal you want it, you think it’s great, anyone who opposes it is terrible… but then Republicans want you to vote on it and you’re outraged that they would let you vote on your incredible plan. At the vote there are no yeas. Just stop being so full of crap. Everyone knows we have a hard enough time making things work for Americans. We can’t dilute American’s benefits and all of our systems so as to care for millions from all over the world. We need immigration, but how about some immigrants who come here based on merit? What the problem with that? Maybe they won’t be dependent on government and have to vote for you?Anything other than a merit system will further greatly strain actual Americans and make their lives much harder. Stop the bullshit and let’s use some common sense for once. #BuildTheWall #maga

Then, on Monday, the President himself posted a screenshot of Cher’s tweet, while writing that he “finally” agrees with the singer.
Cher then responded:
