In the aftermath of the first presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday, September 29, Cher declared that "our lives depend" on President Donald Trump being voted out of office in November. The singer-actress tweeted on September 30 morning, suggesting that he's going to "steal power from the people." "Wonder what I'm doing up," the singer tweeted. "Making plan. Trump & His Dynasty planning on taking Over America. He has told us what He'll do. He's Going To Do What dictators have done to steal Power from the people, from Time immemorial. We must vote in #'s Never seen before. OUR LIVES DEPEND ON IT."

The 'Strong Enough' hitmaker's call for US citizens to vote in droves followed a chaotic and tumultuous debate. The event was moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, who was later criticized for "losing control" of the candidates as well as shielding the former VP from the president's relentless attacks. During the raucous debate, the president questioned his challenger's intelligence. On the other hand, the former vice president branded Trump a "clown" and even told him "shut up, man" at one point. Wallace asked Trump whether he would condemn white supremacists, despite the president having repeatedly denounced them in the past. However, Trump managed to spark outrage by saying, "Sure, I’m willing to do that... Proud Boys, stand back and stand by.” Many on the Left claim the male-exclusive group has ties with white nationalism, but that has been strongly rejected by said organization.

According to the US Elections Project at the University of Florida, over 1.3 million voters in 15 states have cast early ballots. Several mainstream polls suggest Biden is leading Trump in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin — all of which the president won by slim margins in 2016. Having said that, Cher is known for her relentless criticism of the president. Recently, she slammed his decision to nominate conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court before the election.

Last week, the 'Believe' hitmaker warned her 3.8 million Twitter followers that Trump would end elections "by the people" and replace them with “elections for the rich.” In conclusion, she declared that "YOU WILL PAY A PRICE BEYOND COMPREHENSION 4 YOU & YOUR CHILDREN” if Trump is re-elected.
 
“Swear 2 you if trump wins/steals 2nd term HE’LL GET HIS WISH 'SUPREME LEADER' & WE’LL NEVER SEE ANOTHER ELECTION BY THE PEOPLE,” Cher wrote on September 23. “THERE’LL BE ELECTIONS, 4 THE RICH, BY Trump. IF YOU THINK THIS CANT HAPPEN, YOU WILL PAY A PRICE BEYOND COMPREHENSION 4 YOU & YOUR CHILDREN. HE WANTS POWER.”

Just days before, Cher called Trump a "mass murderer" and called for him to be sentenced to "death."

On September 11, the 74-year-old singer posted in an all-caps tweet to convey her outburst but quickly realized that her choice of words mightn't have been appropriate. "THERE’S A BLAME 4 KILLING SOMEONE," Cher wrote. "ITS CALLED 'MURDER'. IF YOU MURDER MORE THAN ONE PERSON YOU ARE A MASS MURDERER. THERE ARE MANY PUNISHMENTS FOR DIFFERENT DEGREES OF MURDER. BUT WHEN SOMEONE 'KNOWINGLY 'MURDERS' PEOPLE... THE PUNISHMENT IS DEATH. Trump’s a mass murderer… hhmm.'' However, she later deleted her tweet.
