"One Of The Big Superstars Of The World": Trump Introduces Lil Pump As Little Pimp At Rally
Lil Pump has been a vocal supporter of Trump.
As if 2020 couldn't get even weirder, Lil Pump made an appearance during the final Donald Trump rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan. But the moment was made even more bizarre when Trump mistakenly referred to Pump as "Little Pimp."
The name flub came about when Trump invited Pump onstage to endorse his campaign.
"One of the big superstars of the world, Little Pimp!" Trump said, pointing to the rapper in the crowd. "How's it going, do you want to come up and say something?"
Trump then appeared to correct himself, calling the rapper "Little Pump" before asking the crowd "does everyone knows who he is? Do you know how big he is?"
Pump then went onstage and proceeded to voice his support of Trump.
"Hello everybody how you guys feeling? I’ve come here to say, Mr. President, I appreciate everything you have done for our country. You brought the troops home and are doing the right thing. MAGA 20 20 20 don’t forget that!" he said, before making a dig at Joe Biden, saying: "And do not vote for sleepy Joe – at all!"
Pump has been a vocal supporter of Trump. The Florida rapper shared an image of his face photoshopped onto former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe shaking hands with Trump last week, and followed that up with a since-deleted Instagram story video where he complained about the possibility of having to pay more taxes under Biden while calling for Trump to win the 2020 election.
It's important to note that Pump's label, Tha Lights Global, has endorsed Biden and Kamala Harris.
"Tha Lights Global supports everyone’s right to choose a Presidential candidate, however we want to make clear we do not support Donald Trump," Tha Lights Global CEO Dooney Battle said in a statement to Billboard. “We support Joe Biden and Kamala Harris for President and Vice President because we believe they offer an alternative to an administration that has ignored systemic racial injustice, promoted hate speech and inhumane immigration policies, ignored the problem of climate change and rights of LGBTQ+ individuals as well as many other actions contrary to democratic ideals. We believe it is our obligation to speak out regarding this historic election and we believe in a free society where all of our artists can express their opinions."
Apparently, Rich the Kid was also invited to the same Trump rally Pump was at, but he wisely didn't take up the offer.
