A member of the rap group Public Enemy has declared his support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
“I’m not really the politician of the group,” Flavor Flav told Billboard at the South by Southwest conference in Austin. “There’s a lot of people talking a lot of shit about Trump, but guess what? He’s winning. The man is winning. I ain’t gonna lie, but listen, the United States has been ran a certain way for decades and decades and decades. You never know: Maybe Trump could possibly do something. Maybe he might step in office and do something. I’m not going to doubt him.”
Flav said he believes the Republicans Party is trying to stop Trump from becoming its nominee.
“Put it this way: If this was really, really a foot race, Donald Trump would be the first one to the finish line, but they won’t let him cross it first,” he continued. “That’s the way I feel, you know what I’m saying? Because he’s winning fairly, but they still don’t want him to be president.”
“They’re going to try to block that man from being president. If Donald Trump does become president, there’s only one thing we all can do: just sit back and let the man do his job.”
Public Enemy frontman Chuck D has a much different opinion of Trump, however.
“Black Lives Matter! F*ck Donald Trump,” Chuck D yelled during a concert at South by Southwest, according to Billboard.
