With the finish line for the US presidential race now in sight, a host of stars have voiced their concern and frustration that controversial Republican candidate Donald Trump has made it this far. In a compilation clip produced by Reuters, the likes of Cher and Matt Damon have their say.

Ahead of the US presidential election on 8 November, Damon slammed Trump's rhetoric, saying that the he could relate to the millions of immigrants being vilified by the 70-year-old mogul. "My wife just got her citizenship a few years ago, it very personal for us to hear that kind of rhetoric in a country that's built by immigrants, you know what I mean," The Jason Bourne star explained.

The 46-year-old star went on to say that Trump's proposal to building a wall separating United States from Mexico and "make them pay for it" was ludicrous. He has three children with his Argentinian wife Luciana Barroso, who he married in 2005.

"It's crazy talk and talking about putting up a wall like to keep my family out. It's incredible to me that a major party is actually saying that thing, that type of thing with a straight face."

Fellow Hollywood A-lister George Clooney was particularly angered by Trump's stance on Muslims and his vow to ban them from the US.

"This xenophobic, fascist sort of 'no-Muslims are going to be coming into the United States', that's never going to happen, you know, that's not going to happen in the United States," he said.

"That's not who we are, that's not who we have ever been, that's not how our country was formed, so you are going to hear some of these louder voices that are extreme and much smaller percentage of the country that always come up during these moments. But they don't ever survive and we get past these."

He added: "You Know I think it was Winston Churchill said ' you can always count on the Americans to do the right thing, after they have exhausted every other possibility' so you know it's all going to be fine, it's just going to take us a minute."

They join the likes of pop legend Cher, NBA star Lebron James and Robert DeNiro, who have publically denounced Trump with hip hop star Eminem even going as far as to release an anti-Trump songtitled Campaign Speech.

The latest opinion polls on Sunday (6 November) revealed that Clinton is edging Trump with a four- to five-point lead. Hillary is expected to will end her campaign for the White House with a midnight "get out the vote rally" in North Carolina.
