Superstar rapper Waka Flocka Flame revealed that he believes Trump is a better president than his predecessor Barack Obama.
Flocka’s comments came in response to a clip of a speech Obama gave at a rally in Philadelphia to support Democratic presidential Joe Biden.
DJ Akademiks shared the clip on Wednesday, Oct. 21, with the caption, “The big homie [Barack Obama] violated [Donald Trump] at a rally event today.”
An Akademiks’s follower commented, “It’s people who think Trump is a better President than Obama,” along with a clown-face emoji, to which Flocka replied, “Guess I’m a clown.”
The rapper’s comments sparked a backlash, with some of his fans being upset that Flocka openly supported President Trump over America’s first black president.
Flocka later explained, “There are two types of people in this world: Those who resist change in favor of nostalgia and those who move with the times and create a better future.”
“Arguments go as far as your education!! Since 1789–2020, Only people for Blacks are Blacks don’t ever [expletive] forget that” he added in another post.
The rapper had been a critic of President Trump. In 2015, when then-candidate Donald Trump campaigned, Flocka took to Twitter to disparage Trump over claims about Mexicans crossing the border, reported News Week.

Days before president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, Flocka desecrated a red Trump shirt on stage during a show at the Georgia Theatre.
Flocka’s comments came on the heels of rapper 50 Cent’s endorsement of President Trump earlier this week. The rapper doubled down on his support of the president after finding out about Joe Biden’s tax plan.
“Yeah, I don’t want to be 20cent,” 50 Cent said. “62% is a very, very, bad idea. I don’t like it !”
