John Legend: Trump 'inspired by hate'

John Legend is slamming Donald Trump, calling the GOP presidential nominee’s campaign one that’s inspired by “racism,” “misogyny” and “narcissism.”


“I’ve always come out for the candidate that I thought was the best candidate for the country, and never been afraid to speak out about that,” the “All of Me” singer says in an interview with Music Choice posted Monday. “I think, for this election particularly, we’ve seen one candidate have an entire campaign inspired by hate, and division, and racism, and misogyny, and his own narcissism."

The 10-time Grammy winner and outspoken 39-year-old Democrat, who performed a song inspired by President Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, added, “I would speak out on any election, but I think it’s even more urgent now because we have someone running for office who’s a major party candidate, who’s so dangerous I think for the world and for this country.”

It’s not the first time Legend, who welcomed a daughter with wife Chrissy Teigen in April, has spoken out against Trump. Last month he called the real estate mogul “uniquely terrible” in an interview with CNN.
