The Black Eyed Peas star recently made his feelings about President Trump crystal clear to a news outlet, portraying him as a narcissist who has used hostility and propaganda to divide America.
During his Good Morning Britain interview on Tuesday, will.i.am took it further and said Trump supporters have settled with the President’s stunts during his first four years in the White House.
And he said that it would be a very terrible thing if Donald Trump was re-elected over Democratic hopeful Joe Biden.
Presenter Susanna Reid then posited that despite the fact, a few people feel uncomfortable with what Donald Trump had said and done, he remained quite popular and in with a chance.
Will.i.am, 45, replied that was like any abusive relationship and that there were people that stick with their spouses and go through abuse because they don’t know how to escape, but that doesn’t mean that they’re happy.
He continued that they just don’t have the strength or the bravery to get out and change, switch it up and have confidence in something else and that was all people have known for the past four years and that people have settled and just took the humiliation and stupid antics of how he behaves, divides and steers hatred.
And he added that if Donald Trump gets in for another four years, that would be bad for the course of America.
Earlier in the conversation, will.i.am said that America was acting like they were a third world country as it leads the number of coronavirus deaths worldwide and struggles with social unrest.
He noted that seeing the racial tension right alongside COVID, a lot of people are feeling tension on both the Democrat and Republican side.
Putting his faith in Joe Biden to rebuild America, the Voice Kids host continued that Joe Biden was part of the cleanup crew – remember 2008 when we had the mortgage crisis? Barack Obama and Joe Biden stabilised the economy and they handed over to Donald Trump a pretty stable America.
And he added that they need that experience and that they don’t need division or chaos or an egotistical everything is about me candidate.
There are numerous people out there that are terrified and beg their fellow Americans to leave him, but there are many Americans that are so in love with him that they don’t care that he treats them like their nothing and only cares about himself and voting Donald Trump is like turkeys voting for Christmas.
Will.i.am is a great celeb and he’s good at what he does, but people should keep their politics to themselves sometimes, especially when they don’t live in the same world that working-class people do.
He knows that the media will publicise everything he says. I’m not implying that he’s trying to influence the election and if he feels that strongly perhaps he should have stood as a candidate himself, then everyone could have voted for him instead, perhaps he would do a better job, who knows!
However, he’s right, there is a cultish element around a lot of Trump supporters and I’m sure people would rather have a bland but consistent and dedicated politician over a posturing, bullying showman any day.
