Demi Lovato released the music video for her politically charged “Commander in Chief” anthem on Wednesday night.

The singer made her feelings for President Trump clear in her new song.

“Commander-in-Chief, honestly / If I did the things you do / I couldn’t sleep, seriously,” she sings. “Do you know the truth? / We are in a state of crisis, people are dying / While you line your pockets. ”

For the music video, Lovato had a diverse group of people doing lip-syncing or using sign language to interpret the lyrics.

At the end of the video, she appears and sings the last half of the politically charged tune.

The singer performed the song at the Billboard Music Awards on Wednesday night. However, NBC has apparently censored his plea for fans to vote in the upcoming election.

TMZ obtained footage of the performance as Lovato intended to air it, which featured the word ‘vote’ splashed onto the stage behind her after concluding the song.

But, on the show, the camera cut a close-up of the singer when the music stopped rather than showing the politically themed backdrop.

Sources told the outlet that NBC felt that because “Commander in Chief” was an anti-Trump song, the “vote” message was too clearly a call to vote against him.

The network is expected to host a town hall with Trump on Thursday evening.

“I literally don’t care if this ruins my career,” Lovato replied. “It’s not about that. My career isn’t about that. I made a work of art that represents something that I believe in. And I even put it at risk of losing fans. I take integrity in my sales work every day. ”
