Lil Pump Didn’t Vote For Donald Trump, Despite Endorsing Him
The 2020 presidential election is in the rearview mirror, and many celebrities are thrilled to see Donald Trump on his way out of the White House. Others who supported the president are disappointed in his loss. One high-profile person who endorsed Trump is rapper Lil Pump.
Lil Pump endorsed Donald Trump for reelection
Lil Pump first showed his support for Trump in October, just days before the election in early November. “All I gotta say is Trump 2020, b*tch,” he said in a video on his Instagram Story. “F*ck I look like paying extra 33 in taxes for Biden b*tch-ass n***a? F*ck sleepy Joe, n***a. Trump 2020, b*tch!”
Pump, a white Colombian rapper who frequently says the N-word, quickly started sporting red MAGA hats and other Trump gear in the lead-up to the election.
Trump even brought out Pump at one of his final rallies of the campaign, first referring to him as “Lil Pimp.” He didn’t perform, but he did express his support for Trump. “Mr. President, I appreciate everything you’ve done for our country. You brought the troops home and you’re doing the right thing,” Pump said in front of the crowd.
“Trump is a good man,” Pump told a reporter about his decision. “Trump is the type of person, he says whatever is on his mind, and I love that. I love it.”
Lil Pump wasn’t the only rapper to endorse Trump
Interestingly enough, Pump was only one of a few rappers who endorsed the president for reelection. First came former N.W.A. rapper Ice Cube, who announced in October he was working with Trump on his “Platinum Plan” for Black Americans.
Not long afterwards, 50 Cent and Lil Wayne came out with their support of the president’s campaign as well. 50 Cent‘s excuse was similar to Pump’s in that he didn’t want to pay higher taxes under Biden’s plan, though his ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler later clarified that he was just trolling on Twitter and not actually serious.
Lil Wayne also met with Trump to discuss the Platinum Plan and shared a photo from the meeting. “Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the Platinum Plan is going to give the community real ownership,” Wayne tweeted. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
Lil Pump didn’t end up voting for Trump
Despite all the outspoken support of President Trump and the many MAGA hats he bought, Lil Pump didn’t actually end up voting for Trump after all. In fact, he didn’t vote at all.
According to XXL and The Smoking Gun, Pump (who was born Gazzy Garcia) isn’t even registered to vote. Official voting records from the Florida Department of State confirmed that Pump isn’t a registered voter, and didn’t cast a ballot in the 2020 election.
