T.I. Tells Donald Trump “F*@k You and F*@k What You Stand For”
With this year's election cycle in full spin, it is becoming equally important for celebrities and others to not only announce their own endorsements but decry opposing candidates as well. Take T.I. for example, who earlier this month backed Senator Bernie Sanders for president and took to Instagram on Sunday (March 13), going on record to denounce Donald Trump and his campaign.
"Donald Trump, this message is for you," the above video starts. "My name is Clifford T.I.P. Harris. I say this as nonviolently but unapologetically as possible. Fuck you and fuck what you stand for. Nobody who support me will support you. End of message."
While the larger hip-hop community is without a spokesperson or assigned figurehead, it is fairly safe to say that as a whole, there has been an overwhelming resistance to Trump's campaign and the platforms he is running on. Last week, Mac Miller appeared on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore to officially slam Trump, and just this weekend, a protestor charged Trump at a rally in Ohio while wearing a J. Cole Dreamville shirt. As a result, the protestor is receiving a box of Dreamville merch for free. On a larger scale, Trump protestors at a Chicago rally were captured chanting Kendrick Lamar's "Alright" this past weekend as wll.
T.I. captioned his video with further words for Trump, writing, "I ain't going for it... Mr Trump, if u beat me u won...but I WILL NOT BE FOOLED!!! I know u got plans for my people that are contrary to OUR BEST INTERESTS. Make no mistake... WE AINT ON THE SAME SIDE. Whatever U ARE,IM NOT!!!! Be CLEAR!!!! I have a family, I have children, I have ancestors that I WILL NOT LET DOWN. If me & mines ain't safe, if me & mines in danger.... Guess what??? It's gon take all my air to keep me from #Goin up Heh... U Have No Idea. May God Be with U sir. Have a nice day Mr. Trump."
The rapper had found himself in a bit of trouble back in October for making potentially sexist remarks about a potential Hilary Clinton presidency but is likely venturing out on a much more stable limb with his latest words for Trump. Check the IG video out up top.
