After Pharrell endorses Hillary Clinton’s run for presidency, T.I. decided to make known his personal thoughts too on Clinton possibly becoming the 45th president.
“Not to be sexist but, I can’t vote for the leader of the free world to be a woman,” he said. “Just because, every other position that exists, I think a woman could do well. But the president? It’s kinda like, I just know that women make rash decisions emotionally – they make very permanent, cemented decisions – and then later, it’s kind of like it didn’t happen, or they didn’t mean for it to happen. And I sure would hate to just set off a nuke. [Other leaders] will not be able to negotiate the right kinds of foreign policy; the world ain’t ready yet. I think you might be able to the Lochness Monster elected before you could [get a woman].”
Tip also touched on Donald trump, expressing his belief that if the businessman is “sincerely concerned about the economy of America,” he could be “beneficial.” However, he concluded that thought by saying that he does not support Trump’s racist remarks.
“He’s interesting and I feel his the best showman of them all. And I do feel that if he is sincerely concerned about the economy of America and the working public, he would be the best person to flip the money that we have […] But you know, his racist remarks and all of his off-color statements and all that s**t it makes it impossible to be completely supportive of him. But just knowing what he’s done for business for himself, if he intends to do that for America, it would be beneficial. But I can’t cash no vote for him.”
