In the sit-down with Raquel Harper, the host tells T.I. she’s “disgusted right now in every single way” by Trump and asks the performer what he thinks the problem is with the commander in chief.

“I think privilege, entitlement, and hypocrisy,” T.I., who was born Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr., replies.

“The fact that people feel the color of their skin makes them a better person, more qualified and more eligible for opportunity.”

“On the world stage, it’s a joke. How could you let such a thing happen to your country?” the 38-year-old entertainer continues.

“How could you put the most prestigious office to be held in the free world, how could you let that fall into the hands of a madman?” T.I. exclaims.

It’s not the first time the Atlanta-born rapper has blasted Trump.
