    Supermodel Bella Hadid and her sister Gigi are known to use their platform for good, and whether it’s speaking out about religion or publicly marching against the travel ban earlier this year, the Hadid sisters are never afraid to speak their minds.

    In a cover interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia this month, Bella opened up about her opinions on Trump’s immigration policies, going on to explain how her dad, Mohamed Hadid, was a refugee.


    ‘My dad was a refugee,’ Bella explained in the interview. ‘He came from Palestine to America when he was a baby. Thankfully, he was able to come, but it was very hard and now it’s probably 100 times harder.’

    She continued: ‘It makes me sad that power is getting taken from a lot of people and they’re not able to make a new life for their children and their families.’

    Speaking of Trump, the 20-year-old supermodel stated, ‘It’s crazy to me that one person can tell you whether or not you can have a better life’, going on to explain why she feels the need to speak up.

    ‘If I can’t talk about something that I’m passionate about, why even be here?’ Bella explained. ‘Why even do any of the stuff that I’m doing if I can’t make a better purpose for the world, or make a difference, or try to put light on a situation that is obviously so dark? It’s all really scary.’
