T.I. is making it clear whose side he’s not on in the 2016 presidential race. The rapper posted a video to his Facebook page Sunday evening with a very blunt message basically condemning Republican candidate Donald Trump.
“Donald Trump, this message is for you … F— you, and f— what you stand for!” T.I. said.
Along with the video message, he wrote a caption that further explained what he verbally expressed:
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⬆ Heh… U Have No Idea. May God Be with U sir. Have a nice day Mr. Trump.
T.I. has been very vocal about his thoughts on the presidential front runners. Late last year, he declared that he would not vote for Hillary Clinton because she is a woman.
“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” he said in a radio interview with DJ Whoo Kid. “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to get the Loch Ness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”
After receiving backlash, he apologized for his “unequivocally insensitive” remarks about the female candidate.
Recently, the hip hop artist revealed that he’s voting for Bernie Sanders. He wrote on his Instagram page, “I’m Goin Wit Bernie…. Who U Got?”
