• Rapper Azealia Banks Says Trump Will Help Blacks

    Progressive rapper Azealia Banks does not seem to be a fan of mass immigration into the U.S. and took to Instagram to express support for GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s staunch anti-illegal immigration policy.

    “Do you think it’s bad that I sort of agree with Trump’s stance on immigration?” Banks admitted in her social media post.

    She says her support for Trump’s immigration plan is based on the detrimental impact mass immigration has on the black community.

    “Not for any reason other than black Americans still not having been paid reparations for slavery and the influx [of] INTERNATIONAL immigrants (not just Mexicans), are sucking up state aid, and government money, space in schools, quality of life etc.??” she wrote. “It’s selfish, but America has been really good at convincing me that everyone else’s problems are more important than my own. I want my f*****g money!!…Me first!!!…Thoughts?”

    Banks, a black rapper from Harlem, prompted headlines earlier this year when declared in an interview that she hates everything about America, particularly fat, white, racists who live in the Midwest.

    Trump could win about 25 percent of the black vote in the general election, according to a recent Survey USA poll, which would be a huge number for a Republican presidential candidate. His vow to bring outsourced jobs back to the states and take other measures to reduce unemployment for American citizens is likely part of the reason he is garnering so much support.

    Trump’s most vocal social media supporters are two African-American sisters known as Diamond and Silk who “stump for Trump” in a series of YouTube videos because Trump’s economic message has strongly resonated with them.
