Barbra Streisand took to Twitter on Thursday to give her opinion regarding President Donald Trump’s newly-signed tax reform law, which she is claiming was deliberately set up to harm blue states, athletes, Hollywood, and the middle class.

The 75-year-old diva became an outspoken critic of Trump during the 2016 election and suggested at the time that she would move to Australia or Canada if Trump won. However, she still lives on the California coast in a trio of Malibu mansions worth between $60-$100 million, according to The Pinnacle List.


On Thursday, Streisand slammed the “erratic and disruptive” members of the president’s administration, writing on Twitter, “I don’t think it’s a coincidence that blue states, athletes, actors, writers, producers, and directors will be punished by this scam of a tax bill, where billionaires get billions, and the middle class gets bupkis (practically nothing) – and an eventual tax increase.”

She also went after the administration for what she called its “abuse of power, the vindictiveness, and the outright lies.”

Streisand appeared and sang at fundraisers for former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton throughout the 2016 race and continues to criticize Trump in media appearances and social media since the election.

Streisand also previously complained that Trump’s victory was making her gain weight.

Shortly before New Year’s Eve, she tweeted: “Collusion or no collusion, @realDonaldTrump should be impeached for sheer stupidity.”

This past November, in an interview with Billboard, the beloved singer told reporters that she has decided to give up touring.

“I can’t. It’s just too vulnerable. It’s too hard for me. I wish I loved it. There are so many performers who perform practically the whole year, you know, 200 or 300 days a year,” she explained.  “They love it. And I wish I felt that way. It would be great because it’s very lucrative but I can’t do it. It’s just too hard.”
