Cher has responded to Donald Trump’s pledge to “protect our LGBTQ citizens from the violence and oppression of a hateful foreign ideology” at last month’s Republican National Convention.

The singer’s response? “Oh come on!” she told MSNBC this week.

“He says those letters [LGBTQ] like a child that is just learning the alphabet. And then pokes his finger in the air for ‘Q’.”

“I mean he is the most disingenuous man I’ve ever seen. And I want to tell you: my people will not believe him for a minute.”

US lobby group Human Rights Campaign has reported Donald Trump has a “mixed” record on discrimination, and has been a “consistent opponent” of marriage equality.

Cher, who is on the campaign trail for Hillary Clinton, said she worries about what President Trump would mean for her loyal gay fanbase.

“I care for all Americans. America has been so great for me. I was a poor, poor child, I had dyslexia. Nothing would say that I would succeed in this country – and I did.

“And I fear for those [LGBTQ] people and not just because of my [transgender son Chaz Bono]. I fear what they will do to those people – to my people.”

Cher, who is a prolific tweeter and diehard Emoji enthusiast, has previously told her Twitter followers she’ll “move to Jupiter” if Donald Trump is elected President.
