With the news that Donald Trump has won the presidential election setting in, many celebrities are taking to Twitter to voice their opinions. Among them is Emmy Rossum. In a series of tweets Wednesday morning, the Shameless actress outlined her disappointment with the current results.

“This morning still sad. I was looking forward to the next 4 yrs. To having a child, maybe a daughter, under the first female president,” she said. “I wanted to tell her she could achieve anything she wanted. That she would win if she led with kindness. Not to make fun of people. Or bully.”

After several more tweets, she explained the many reasons this has hit her so hard. “I am a woman. I am Jewish. I am marrying an Arab American. My sister in law is handicapped. I’m a victim of sexual violence,” she said. “It’s personal.”

Rossum concluded, “We are in this together.”
