    Pussy Riot have taken on the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency in their new video for "Make America Great Again". The video strongly criticizes Trump's rhetoric and proposed policies. The caption for the video reads, "Because YOU decide elections and if we get together, we could blow this s*** up, take action and reverse this erosion of rights. Because f*** it."

    As Rolling Stone explains, "The "Make America Great Again" clip imagines a world in which Trump wins the upcoming presidential election. In the video, America's new leader relies on muscled thugs to enforce his values, often by branding people he doesn't like with hot metal. As Trump's stormtroopers engage in various forms of torture, Pussy Riot sing a simple refrain: "Let all the people in/ Listen to your women/ Stop killing black children/ Make America great again."

    "The jaunty, carefree music contrasts with the brutal events depicted on screen. The track came together with help from Ricky Reed, who has written and produced hits for Jason Derulo, Pitbull and 21 Pilots. Jonas Akerlund, who has helmed clips for Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, directed the clip."

    The video joins two others released this week for "Straight Outta Vagina" and "Organs." The band will release their new EP, xxx, this Friday.
