Chance the Rapper says his platform and voice are “bigger” than President Trump’s.

“I just have a larger platform than all politicians,” the 24-year-old performer said on NPR’s "What’s Good With Stretch and Bobbito" podcast, released Wednesday.

The “No Problem” rapper had been asked about ways he can influence politics as an artist that he “wouldn’t be able to as a politician.”


“I have a bigger voice than Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden slams Trump over golf gif hitting Clinton Trump Jr. declines further Secret Service protection: report Report: Mueller warned Manafort to expect an indictment MORE, you know what I’m saying?” the rapper replied. “Than literally anybody that works in politics. And so, yes, I can connect with people on a level of appealing as a person who’s still a citizen, who still does, you know, what he wants.”

While the Chicago-born entertainer has more than 5 million followers on Twitter, Trump boasts in excess of 35 million on his personal account alone. Former President Obama has more than 92 million Twitter followers.
