Richards said Macklemore told the crowd, “We should be welcoming and encouraging everyone to live the American Dream.”

Macklemore and hip-hop artist G-Eazy remixed the original “F--k Donald Trump” song by YG during the 2016 election. The song peaked at number 50 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list last year.

After Trump was elected president in November, Macklemore shared an Instagram post in which he said he was “disappointed, shocked and shaken at my core” by the election results.

“I don't have control over Donald Trump becoming president. That has been decided. But what I do have control over is where I go from here. I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they're from,” the rapper wrote in the post.

Eminem led a similar anti-Trump chant at a concert in the United Kingdom in August.
