The “She Bangs” singer discussed the reasons why he will not be voting for Trump in the upcoming U.S. presidential election during a new interview.
“I am a Latino, gay [and] married to an Arab living in Trump’s America. We check all the boxes,” said Martin, speaking to Variety.
Despite saying that it’s “really scary” and “super sad” to see Latinx people voting for Trump, the Puerto Rico-born star explained why he’s “very optimistic.”
He continued, “I think there is a lot of Hispanics who will vote him out. Trumpeters make a lot of noise. And it’s scary to see their enthusiasm but us, we’re doing what’s right, the right way and we’ll see what happens in November.”
The 48-year-old star also explained why he is supporting Joe Biden in his bid to become the next U.S. president.
Martin said that Biden is the “only option we have and he is great and he has been in politics all his life.”
He added, “This is the moment. We all need to get together and be loud about the course of this nation.”
