Trump brings Lil Pump onstage at rally, introduces him as ‘Little Pimp’

President Trump appeared to refer to Lil Pump as “Little Pimp” by accident as he invited the rapper onstage during his rally in Michigan on Monday night.

Trump had taken a brief moment to introduce the “Gucci Gang” rapper to his crowd of supporters at his final campaign rally the night before Election Day in Grand Rapids.

Moments later, he then referred the rapper by his correct name, saying: “Come on, Little Pump, come on up here.” 

“Does everyone know who he is? Do you know how big he is? Come on up here. That’s a nice hat,” he also said, referring to the rapper’s “Make America Great Again” cap.

Shortly after taking the podium, Lil Pump offered praise to the president, telling him he appreciates everything he has “done for our country.”

“You brought the troops home and you’re doing the right thing. MAGA 20, 20, 20. Don’t forget that! And do not vote for Sleepy Joe at all!” he said, evoking the president’s nickname for his Democratic opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden. 

Lil Pump is one of a number of high-profile rappers who have thrown support behind Trump at one point or another, including Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

50 Cent came under scrutiny in mid-October when he also appeared to endorse Trump on Instagram, while also urging his followers to back the president in the election. At the time, he bashed Biden’s tax rate plan, which would raise taxes on those who earn higher than $400,000 annually.

However, the rapper has since appeared to withdraw his support from Trump, writing in a tweet roughly a week ago, “F— Donald Trump,” saying that he “never liked” him.
