T.I. Knows We Have to Accept Donald Trump as Our President
Like many in the rap community, T.I. is not too fond of Donald Trump. Still, that doesn't mean that he isn't prepared to face reality. During a recent interview with TMZ, the Grand Hustle boss explains that while he has issues with the President-elect, he does accept him as his next president, and everyone needs to look to the future.
During the first part of the brief interview, Tip explains that even though there's a petition to get the Electoral College to vote Hillary Clinton into office, Trump will still most likely be in the White House by 2017. If anyone has problems with that, they need only look in the mirror.
"I just think all of the people who are up in arms about it -- myself included -- you know, we just didn't do enough," T.I. says in the interview. “Now it’s about focusing on, for one, how we have to keep ourselves out of harm’s way and kind of how we unite over the next two years,” the Trap Muzik artist continues. “Because in the next two years there’s going to be some more voting that needs to be done, it’s some more people that need to be elected.”
Tip was briefly interrupted by the TMZ reporter who mistakenly believed T.I. was saying disgruntled people should get ready to vote for president again in two years. He was actually talking about the elections for lower levels of government. "I'm talking about Congress, Senate, local elections," T.I. specifies. "Local elections are the most effective elections. Those are the things that directly affect the people in the community."
T.I. knows a lot of people aren't too happy with this year's election results, but he believes it's now time to move forward. "All we can do is accept the changes that have been made to this country," he says. "I'm going to miss Obama. We're going to have to make the best of what we got."
