The 20-year-old rapper, who voiced his support for Trump after bashing Biden’s tax plan, previously threatened to leave the country if the president lost the race to Biden. “Yo, no cap. If Trump does not get elected, I’m moving the f**k out of here,” he said, adding, “I’m going to Colombia, f**k it.”
Despite Pump’s Trump endorsement, his label, Tha Lights Global, is backing Biden-Harris for the White House. “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 told Billboard.
Pump is the latest rapper to show support for Trump, following Lil Wayne, 50 Cent, and Kanye West, the latter of whom denounced the president. In a rally for Biden-Harris in Philadelphia, John Legend called out the rap community while referencing Jordan Peele’s 2017 movie Get Out.
“Some of your former favorite rappers have been taken in by these lies,” said Legend. “I think they even founded a new supergroup, it’s called the Sunken Place.”
