The rapper took to social media to say that the current president is the actual ‘face of racism!’ It all started when Donald Trump praised America’s ancestors for taming ‘a nation!’
As you probably know by now, the statement is very problematic considering the history of the continent.
Trump made it very clear that he would never apologize for the U.S. and its controversial beginnings during his U.S. Naval Academy speech yesterday.
In response, Tip wrote on Instagram: ‘And now a word from the face of racism….Donald Trump says ‘our ancestors tamed a continent’ and ‘we’re not going to apologize for America.’’
It seems like T.I. was enraged by the fact that instead of addressing very current issues, Trump chose to praise America’s past, ignoring the various problems that plagued it at the time.
‘America is the greatest fighting force for peace, justice, and freedom in the history of the world. We’ve become a lot stronger lately. We aren’t going to apologize for America. We’re going to stand up for America,’ the president said.
Obviously enough, T.I., who is known for his active role in fighting racism in the United States was not happy about his words.
The rapper is not the first (nor will he be the last) celebrity Trump is feuding with!
The Donald has been involved in many social media wars over the years.
Some of the starts he had notable arguments with are Chrissy Teigen and Oprah Winfrey as well as Rosie O’Donnell!
What do you think about T.I.’s reaction to Donald Trump’s speech? Do you agree with the rapper’s words?
