Madonna has hit out at Donald Trump for failing to act on gun violence.

The pop queen, who has previously posed with weapons, said the US president was too "focused on his damn wall in Mexico".

In an interview with British 'Vogue', she criticised "the fixation that our country is so endangered by Central America".

"Why aren't we focused on gun control?

"That's the real danger," the singer said.

"That's a way bigger problem than people crossing the border."

She added of Mr Trump: "I can't believe he is so focused on his damn wall in Mexico."

On her 'Madame X' track 'God Control', the star sings: "We lost gun control, this is your wake-up call."

In the past, some of the 60-year-old singer's dance routines featured guns and violence.
