Ant-Man actor and rapper T.I. unloaded on President Donald Trump in a recent interview where he called him a “madman.”
In a short clip released by TMZ promoting T.I.’s upcoming appearance on BET’s Raq Rants, host Raquel Harper began the conversation talking about her own disgust for President Trump, “So, I’m pretty much disgusted right now in every single way about Donald Trump and what he’s doing with this country.” She would then go on to task T.I.’s opinion about the President.
“I think privilege, entitlement, hypocrisy, the fact that people think the color of there skin makes them a better person and more qualified and more eligible for opportunities. And we can’t continue to call ourselves the greatest nation in the world if we continue to behave this way.”
He then spoke about the perception of the United States on the world stage and provided his strong opinion on Donald Trump:
“On the world stage, it’s a joke. How could you let such a thing happen to your country? How could you put the most prestigious office to be held in the free world. How could you let that fall into the hands of a madman.”
This isn’t the first swipe the rapper turned actor has taken against Donald Trump or his family. Back in October, he released a music video that featured a woman posing as First Lady Melania Trump who began strip dancing inside a replica of the Oval Office.
The music video quickly came under fire from Melania Trump’s Director of Communications Stephanie Gisham, who called for a boycott of T.I.

While the Ant-Man and the Wasp actor hasn’t been as active against the administration such as the likes of Ron Perlman, he has gone after other rappers who have been either openly warmed up to the Trump administration or have decided to not entirely critical of President Donald Trump and his America First policies.
He specifically targeted fellow rapper Kanye West and his meeting with President Donald Trump earlier this year. He called the meeting “shameful” on Instagram.

Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics… Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather… This is the most repulsive,disgraceful, Embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen. Now I recall you asking me to come with you to have this meeting and I declined (naturally)… but bro… if ain’time I would’ve been in there wit you and you behaved that spinelessly in my presence,I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’Fuq outta you bro For the People!!! You ass kissing and boot licking on a whole new level &I refuse to associate myself with something so vile,weak,& inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE!!!! I’m a true believer in “It ain’t what you do,it’s how you do it.” And this shit is regurgitating🤮! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you. To all the people who follow Ye musically,socially, or even personally….who are confused, heartbroken, infuriated…. Let me make this clear… THIS SHIT AINT COOL!!! THIS IS A MOVE YE MADE FOR YE!!! THIS IS A PLAY TO PUT HIM IN A POSITION HE’D LIKE TO SEE HIMSELF IN…WE ARE NOT ON HIS MIND AS HE MAKES THESE COMMENTS AND DECISIONS. Don’t follow this puppet. Because as long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world,if to do so he must lose his soul. We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is… I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop,I’m officially DONE!!!! 🖕🏽Trump & His Lil Cookie Boy. #USorELSE✊🏽
What do you think about T.I.’s comments? Do you think President Donald Trump is a madman? Or do you think T.I. is just another celebrity who is trying to get attention by insulting the President of the United States?
T.I.’s full interview with Raquel Harper will air on BET at 11 pm ET tonight.
