Miley was one of the stars who supported Hillary during the campaign season, urging people to vote for her and posting photos of the former secretary of state on social media.
In a video on her verified Facebook page, a tearful Miley tried to control herself as she delivered her message.
“So, probably like most people – well, maybe not, because given the result – maybe I really am different and maybe a lot of people that I’m surrounded by think with open minds and open hearts like I do,” she said.
“And do I want to say that I’ve been very vocal for my support for everyone asides Donald Trump. [I] heavily supported Bernie [Sanders], I heavily supported Hillary, and I still think that in her lifetime, she deserves to be the first female president. And that’s what makes me so sad.
“I wish she had an opportunity because she fought for so long and because I believe her when she says that she loves this country. This is all she’s ever done; she’s given her life to make it better,” Miley said.
Miley added that she’s accepting Donald as president because she wants to be hopeful. She also thanked President Barack Obama for his service to the country, and spoke about people treating each other with love, compassion, and respect.

On Instagram, Miley wrote: “If we want Donald Trump to accept us, we must be accepting towards his presidency and his promise to ‘unify’ our country and ‘make America great.’ I leave out the ‘again’ because this country has never been able to live up to its full potential because we’ve been putting up our own divided walls between each other. We don’t need Trump to do that for us.
“So WE must take a hammer to the bricks WE built up and be more LOVING and compassionate towards all living things! (including the planet) (p.s. Mr. Elected president… Global warming IS real. ACCEPT THAT.)”
Go to my Facebook to see a video of my reaction & reflection on last nights election …. If we want Donald Trump to accept us …. We must be accepting towards his presidency & his promise to “unify” our country and “make America great” …. I leave out the “again” because this country has never been able to live up to its full potential because we've been putting up our own divided walls between each other. We don't need Trump to do that for us…. So WE must take a hammer to the bricks WE built up and be more LOVING and compassionate towards all living things! (including the planet) (p.s. Mr. Elected president….. Global warming IS real. ACCEPT THAT)
During her speech after the election results, Hillary said that she offered to work with Donald and wished him well as he takes on the presidency in January. She also thanked everyone who campaigned for her.
“This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for and I’m sorry that we did not win this election for the values we share and the vision we hold for our country,” she said.
“This is painful, and it will be for a long time, but I want you to remember this: our campaign was never about one person or even one election.” – With reports from Agence France-Presse/Rappler.com
