It's only three days ago (June 16) that real estate tycoon, Donald Trump declared his presidential candidature and it's taken that same period for his announcement to drag out reactions from the same Hollywood stars he probably is a fan of.

Business man Russell Simmons is now the first celebrity to speak out about what he thinks would be 'a huge mistake' to America should Trump wins.

"I don't like his politics. I don't think he'd be good for America at all," Simmons told HufffPost Live's Marc Lamont Hill on Thursday, June 18. "He makes a lot of news. Doesn't have as much influence as, say, Kim Kardashian. She would probably be a better president, in my opinion. Trump running is dangerous even though he's a good business guy and smart."

"His politics are divisive and hurtful, and I would be very afraid for America," he added. "Our relationship with the world is already so damaged from the Bush era. We haven't done that much to fix it, that's for sure, and he would be terrible from an international standpoint.

Veteran singer Cher also had something to say to Trump. The 69-year-old icon took to Twitter to express her thoughts about the billionaire investor's big news, and she didn't hold back.
