50 Cent changed his mind about backing current president Donald Trump only a couple of weeks after the rapper endorsed him.
The rapper claimed that his endorsement of Trump was despite acknowledging that the president "doesn’t like Black people", and has cited tax reasons as one of the main reasons for his support.
In a video 50 Cent has posted of an interview between Jimmy Fallon and his ex, Chelsea Handler, Handler stated that "He doesn’t want to pay 62 per cent of taxes because he doesn’t want to go from being 50 Cent to 20 Cent," and added that she "had to remind him that he was a Black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump, and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook."
He shared the video and captioned it with the words; "F**k Donald Trump, I never liked him. For all I know he had me set up and had my friend Angel Fernandez killed but that’s history. LOL."
Handler added that she would be able to go for "another spin" if he renounced his support, seeing that 50 Cent is not the only rapper who has enraged the public for supporting the president. We have also seen Kanye West, who is also in the running for president, wearing a MAGA hat and displayed support for Trump.
Now, only weeks away from the highly anticipated presidential election, Trump is trying to salvage the little reputation he has left as it seems that he has some serious competition from his Democratic rival, Joe Biden.
It looks to be one of the worst years for Trump, where things took an ultimate turn for the worst when the first lady, Melania and himseld tested positive for COVID-19.
After they both tested positive for Covid-19, Trump insisted that they immediately went into self-isolation together. He insisted that he and his wife felt fine, however, just a few days, later he was hospitalised at Walter Reed National Military Centre.
After being discharged only a few days later, he took the stand and insisted to the nation that all they need to do is just "learn to live with COVID", which was very concerning fact for many people to hear.
