This Is What Jennifer Lawrence Said Concerning Donald Trump's Presidency

 
After Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States, the Hunger Games star reflected on the election in an essay for Vice's Broadly. channel Thursday.

She said “Is this the stark reality? It doesn't matter how hard you work or how qualified you are, at the end of the day, you're not a man? Is that what we just learned? This country was founded on immigration and today the only people that feel safe, that their rights are recognized and respected are white men. I want to be positive; I want to support our democracy, but what can we take away from this? It's a genuine question that we all need to ask ourselves. We shouldn't blame anyone, we shouldn't riot in the streets. We should think strongly and clearly about what to do next because we cannot change the past.”

Lawrence encouraged people who are disappointed by the outcome of the election to take action. As concerns about the environment, racial violence and another recession loom large, the actress said citizens must organize and stand against it. She said “If you're a woman and you're worried that no matter how hard you work or how much you learn, there will always be a glass ceiling, then I don't really know what to say, I don't know what I would tell my daughter if I were you. Except to have hope. To work for the future. We mustn't be defeated. We will keep educating ourselves and working twice as hard as the man next to us because we know now that it is not fair. It is not fair in the workplace, so you make it impossible to fail. And like Hillary, it might not work.”
