A bevy of stars used their victories at last night's SAG Awards as an opportunity to call out President Trump and his recent Muslim ban.

In the wake of the executive order banning immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries, the backlash against President Trump feels more palpable than ever. Anti-Trump political sentiments dominated the narrative of last night's Screen Actors Guild Awards. As the show coincided with nationwide protests against Trump's Muslim ban, a wide array of stars felt compelled to address the president's controversial mandate during their acceptance speeches. 

Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures) and Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) sought to portray their films -- dealing with the stories of marginalized characters -- as sources of inspiration in fighting Trump's politics. Accepting the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series on behalf of the cast of Stranger Things, David Harbour delivered a particularly rousing speech that earned a standing ovation. 

Here are all the stars that went after Trump last night.
