Pussy Riot has been fighting for what they believe in since 2011, protesting against Russian President Vladimir Putin and advocating for women’s and LGBT rights, among other topics. The feminist punk rock group continues to send messages to the masses and their latest video, “Make America Great Again,” takes a dig at Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

“Because YOU decide elections and if we get together, we could blow this shit up, take action and reverse this erosion of rights. Because f**k it,” reads the video’s caption.

Directed by Jonas Akerlund, the video stars Nadya Tolokno and envisions a world in which Trump wins the upcoming election. The clip begins with footage of the business mogul at rallies and people fighting, it then shows the singer being dragged into a police station where she’s branded as an “outsider” and “fat pig.”

“Make America Great Again” features lyrics like “Let other people in/Listen to your women/Stop killing black children/Make America Great Again” and “Could you imagine a politician calling a woman a dog?/Do you wanna stay in the kitchen?/Is that where you belong?”

The song was written by Ricky Reed, Nadya and Tom Peyton and is part of Pussy Riot’s new EP “xxx” which also includes the songs “Straight Outta Vagina” and “Organs.”

In an interview with Billboard, the singer spoke about the song and compared Trump to Putin saying, “I know more than Americans unfortunately what it’s like to have such a guy as president. That’s why I came up with the idea of burning and stigmatization [in the video],” she stated. “I wanted to warn people that words do hurt physically. When he calls people “fat pigs” it affects their physical existence. That’s why I came up with this image [of “fat pig” being branded on a woman’s body].”
