John Legend SLAMS Donald Trump!!

John Legend slammed Donald Trump, calling him a racist during a recent appearance on MSNBC.

The singer was asked about Trump’s signing of the “First Step Act” in 2018 “to reduce the size of the federal prison population.

Legend isn’t buying it.

“He’s not been an ally. I think the ‘First Step Act’ was fine — it was a very small reform, and to be honest, most of the reform we need is on the local and state level because most incarceration is local and state, and most of the laws that end up being criminally enforced are local and state laws, so very little impact can happen on the federal level,” he said.

Trump recently claimed that Black people identified with him because of his indictments, which many found very offensive.

“At the same time he’s claiming credit for those small things, he’s also saying, ‘Y’know, if people are stealing something, they should get shot in the middle of the store.’ When we protested the killing of George Floyd, he was advocating for the military to shoot us in the streets. He’s made it clear throughout his life that he believes Black people are inferior; like he believes that to his core, in his bones. He won’t let us live in his buildings back in the day, but also when you hear some of the stray comments he makes, he clearly believes in a genetic hierarchy of humanity and is racially determined.”

Legend went on to call Trump a “tried-and-true, dyed-in-the-wool racist,” adding that the former president it racist at his “core.”
