British pop star Adele announced her support for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at her concert in Miami on Tuesday.

“I am English, but what happens in America affects me too,” the songstress said during her concert in the critical battleground state. “I am 100 percent for Hillary Clinton. I love her, she’s amazing.”

Adele urged her fans not to support Republican nominee Donald Trump.

"Don't vote for him — that's what I'm saying," Adele said in one video captured by local Miami reporter Adam Kuperstein.

Clinton, who was in attendance, quickly seized upon the celebrity's comments.

Trump criticized his Democratic counterpart Wednesday for attending an Adele concert with less than two weeks until Election Day.

Responding to criticism that he had taken time off the campaign trail to attend a ribbon-cutting ceremony at his new Trump hotel in Washington, D.C., the candidate argued that the press continues to treat him unfairly, since no one criticized Hillary Clinton for going to the Adele concert.

“Nobody complains when she goes to an Adele concert all night long, while I’m making two speeches at rallies with, you know, massive crowds,” Trump told ABC News's George Stephanopoulos at his hotel in Washington.
