Jennifer Lawrence says President Donald Trump made her rethink her political views.

The Oscar-winning actress joined Wednesday's podcast's "Absolutely Not," where she revealed to Heather McMahan which made her rethink as she got older.

“I grew up a Republican. The first time I voted, I voted for John McCain. I was a bit of a Republican,”said 30-year-old Lawrence.

The Oscar winner said her upbringing allowed her to "see the financial benefits of some Republican politicians" and also to realize that "social issues were not in line with her views."

However, as Lawrence got older, she said she "changed her outlook on politics based on what she learned."

At least she said she "changed everything" when "Donald Trump was elected."

Citing some of the biggest scandals of Trump's tenure - although he insists that critics have persecuted him unfairly - Lawrence said: “This is an impeached president who has broken many laws and refused to condemn white supremacy, and it seems that what happened was a line drawn in the sand. I don't think this is right … it just changes the situation."

During the first presidential debate last month, Trump objected when moderator Chris Wallace asked him to clearly disavow the white supremacist group. The President has been discussing these issues for a long time.

When Democratic opponent Joe Biden proposed dropping the Proud Boys, an extreme right-wing, marginalized group associated with violence, Trump said, "Proud guys, step aside and be on the sidelines." (He later denounced the group and other supremacists in an interview with Sean Hannity.)

"I don't want to support a president who supports white supremacists," Lawrence said on the McMahan podcast.

The actress then likened the Trump administration to that of Barack Obama, reflecting on how people "spent days, maybe weeks, not thinking about the president because everything was good overall."

Earlier this month, Lawrence supported Biden and his team-mate, Senator Kamala Harris, in the upcoming 2020 presidential election by appearing in V Magazine as one of the 12 stars on the cover of their Thought Leaders.
