Barack Obama Begs Jay-Z To Tell Other Black Artists Not To Support Trump

Obama warned that a swell of support fro Trump could help him win a second term in office.

Former US President Barack Obama has begged Hip-Hop star Jay-Z to call on all black artists not to show support for President Donald Trump.

Obama warned that a swell of support fro Trump could help him win a second term in office.

The former President urged his "friend" Jay-Z to tell other black artists not to meet with Trump following the recent outpouring of support from Kanye West.

West said on Twitter:

“Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed."

West adds to a long line of black rappers who have criticized Barack Obama for failing to bring positive change to black communities.

Infowars.com reports: The claim is being made by pro-Trump activist Josh Cornett, who tweeted, “Sources are confirming that former President Barack Obama has called Jay-Z several times over the past month pleading with Jay-Z to discourage fellow Hip Hop artists from meeting with President Trump.”

The tweet has received over 7,600 retweets and over 10,000 likes since being posted.

Donald Trump Jr. also liked the tweet, leading some to speculate that he may know that the story is true.

While the story remains unconfirmed, it would make political sense for Democrats to deter pop icons from being seen to endorse President Trump in any way as the mid-terms draw nearer.

In the week after Kanye West tweeted his support for Candace Owens, a vocal African-American Trump supporter, Trump’s popularity amongst black males jumped from 11 percent to 22 percent.

It has also been pointed out that before Trump ran as a Republican, he was a popular figure amongst the hip-hop community, being name-dropped in the lyrics of numerous hit songs.

Democrats routinely rely on endorsements from celebrities, with both Jay-Z and Beyonce being prominent supporters of Hillary Clinton during the election.

Any shift away from superstars using their platforms to amplify leftist narratives would spell disaster for the Dems, who have already lost 9 per cent support from millennial registered voters aged between18 to 34 since the 2016 election.
