The 5-piece girl group from 'X-Factor' condemned the Republican front-runner for "saying disgusting things" about Latinos.

It’s no secret that Fifth Harmony are a group of talented young women, but offstage, their passion about topics like feminism, bullying and politics makes them even more refreshing to follow.

The five-piece, made up of Ally Brooke Hernandez, Normani Kordei, Lauren Jauregui, Dinah Jane and Camila Cabello, is featured on the cover of the November issue of Latina magazine and opened up about their thoughts on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

"As an immigrant myself, to have someone say such disgusting things about my people — my dad who came from Mexico, my mom who worked at Marshall’s before she became an architect, and me pursuing my singing dreams — it’s terrible," Cabello said.

Nineteen-year-old Jauregui talked about how Trump inspires her to urge young people to vote. 

"We have the mass majority, and if young people don’t get involved in the voting process, then Trump’s going to win," Jauregui said. "He’s catering to a portion of Americans — the racist ones. It’s little things like that. If I can get 20 more girls to vote than that’s 20 more votes against something that could be negative."

For Normani Kordei, imagining Trump as president is a just a frightening prospect. 

"That really scares me — to think that he could be my future president, and have power of my life, my parents, my friends," Kordei told the mag. "For him to be president would be a step backward."
