In an interview with Essence at the Black Women in Music event in Hollywood, Yara Shahidi said

I personally, as a Black Iranian, do not support Trump or the administration partly because his policy changes deeply affect me and my family and some of the people I know around me. I know if I’m affected, there are people who are affected ten times worse than I am. I’ve heard stories of Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids happening. It’s just such a scary time especially coming from the dream that was the Obama administration. Because whether you agreed with his polices or not, there was such decorum.
