A video posted to YouTube also shows her singing a cover of Britney Spears’ song “Toxic,” and during the song, there are images of Trump and people protesting his election playing on a screen behind her.

The display eventually features different quotes by Trump where he talks about building a wall, being wealthy, and taking credit for breaking the glass ceiling for women.

Madonna openly supported Hillary Clinton during the presidential election, even performing in New York City at what the singer called “a surprise, impromptu rally.”

The more recent event, which benefited her charity Raising Malawi, is said to have raised $7.5 million.
