Ricky Martin Endorses Hillary Clinton, Calls Her ‘Latina at Heart’

Pop sensation Ricky Martin is throwing his support to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton Wednesday.

The endorsement, first reported by Buzzfeed's Adrian Carrasquillo, came before an upcoming Clinton event in Orlando, Florida, a region with a growing Puerto Rican and Latino electorate.

"Our community has been continuously attacked by Donald Trump and other Republican presidential candidates," Ricky Martin told BuzzFeed. "A few months ago I raised my voice against Trump's hateful rhetoric and standing with me was Hillary Clinton. Time after time, Hillary has shown her commitment to the Latino community and that is why I'm proud to support her and to stand with her because ella está con nosotros y nuestras familias."
Martin tweeted out his support as well, calling Clinton a "Latina at Heart"

Twitter users also took the site to express their opinions on the decision.

Martin is the second Puerto Rican singer to back Clinton. Marc Anthony brought her onstage at an October concert in Florida.
