Chance the Rapper says the media isn't just unfair to Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonDemocratic Socialists of America endorses Sanders for president How to end the Electoral College and elect our next president by popular vote CNN town halls put network at center of Dem primary MORE, but also to Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate GOP budget ignores Trump, cuts defense Trump says he'll nominate Stephen Moore to Fed White House: ISIS territory in Syria has been 100 percent eliminated MORE.


“I think the media over-saturated his presence in the election,” the 23-year-old performer said of the GOP presidential nominee when ITK caught up with him at Tuesday’s Italy state dinner at the White House, where he was a guest.

Earlier this month, the Chicago-born hip hop star told Billboard that the media has “unfairly treated” Clinton, Trump’s Democratic rival. 

Chance has thrown his support behind the former secretary of State.

But when we asked whether the same can be said of the media’s treatment of Trump, the rapper, born Chance Bennett, said journalists and news outlets play “to a lot of his weaknesses, but plays them up as strengths, so he can get more airtime.”

But it wasn’t talking politics, but boogeying down, that Chance said he was most looking forward to at the state dinner.

“I hope there’s some dancing. There’s some good music played. The recurring dance battle that me and the president have had going on for a few years,” he said.

So who’s winning the dance-off with President Obama so far?

“I’m very high in the polls,” he replied confidently.

“I'm just a great dancer. I have the fit, the build for it. I take it very seriously," he added with a smile.
