Chicago rapper Twista isn’t ready to roll out the red carpet for Donald Trump anytime soon. The hip-hop veteran has responded to the president’s threat of sending out the Feds if crime doesn’t get better in his hometown.
Twista went to Twitter this week and politely told President Trump he should fall back.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has also responded to Trump’s threat.
Asked about Trump’s statement following a Chicago city council meeting Wednesday, Emanuel said he “welcomed” the idea of greater federal assistance to address crime in the city. He said federal authorities already play an integral role in fighting crime in the city, referencing the transport of guns across state lines, among other areas. “A lot of the guns, you know, coming into Chicago come from out of state,” Emanuel said. “Federal entities are set up to deal with that. And they do. And they work with us.” (CNN)
Last week, Odd Future’s Frank Ocean publicly blasted President Trump.
Recently, music stars T.I. and Tyrese threw shade at Trump over his attendee turnout not matching President Barack Obama‘s 2009 inauguration numbers.
