Another rapper has hopped aboard the Donald Trump train. 

On Sunday, Lil Pump, born Gazzy Garcia, took to social media to endorse President Trump ahead of the November 3 election. Alongside a picture of himself shaking hands with Trump on Instagram, he wrote, “THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020.” 

In a since-deleted follow-up post, the “Gucci Gang” rapper is seen on video doubling down on his support, citing Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan as the reasoning for his decision. 

“All I gotta say is Trump 2020,” he said. “[What] I look like paying a extra 33 is tax for Biden….”

Lil Pump’s support comes after fellow rapper 50 Cent recently criticized Biden’s plans to raise taxes for individuals making over $400,000 a year. 

“VOTE ForTRUMP,” 50 tweeted on October 19. However, less than a week later it seems he has changed his mind thanks to a little push from his ex, comedian Chelsea Handler

On October 25, the Power star wrote, “[Forget] Donald Trump, I never liked him.”
