A Fox News commentator is under fire for his comments on Donald Trump and Nipsey Hussle.
Campus Reform editor in chief Lawrence Jones went on the network to discuss black voters and the 2020 presidential election and suggested if Trump sat down with black rappers, it’d be enough to sway black voters.
“You know, if Nipsey Hussle was still alive, I would say, president, talk to Nipsey because he is one that’s talked about financial literacy,” Jones said. “I don’t think the black community wants the president, the politician. I think more black folks want Donald Trump the businessman. I think that’s the person that they admire.”
He continued, “If the president were to sit down with someone like Ice Cube, T.I., or Jay-Z and talk about the finances and the real issues that affect black America, I think you could see a change in the electorate.”
Instead of reading the Twitter commentary on what the last rapper would think about this suggestion, revisit Nipsey Hussle and YG’s 2016 track, “FDT (Fuck Donald Trump)” below.
