Lil Pump Says He Is Voting for President Trump
Late Sunday night (Oct. 25), Pump posted a video on his Instagram Story, in which he reveals that he'll be voting for Trump next month and gave his reason why.
"All I gotta say is Trump 2020, bitch," he said in the clip. "Fuck I look like paying extra 33 in taxes for Biden bitch ass nigga. Fuck sleepy Joe, nigga. Trump 2020, bitch. Ah!"
Pump is likely referring to Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden's proposed tax plan, which would increase local and state taxes for New York City, New York State, New Jersey and California taxpayers earning more than $400,000 a year.

Hours after Lil Pump posted the Trump-supporting video, he shared what appears to be a photoshopped image of himself meeting the current president and shaking his hand. He captioned the photo, "THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020."
The former 2018 XXL Freshman received major backlash after vocalizing that he'll be voting for Donald Trump on Election Day (Nov. 3).
"Man... If Lil Pump can influence your vote, I don’t know what at all to tell you," one person tweeted.
Another wrote, "Lil Pump is voting for a man that has been targeting his people since the moment he got into office."
Lil Pump isn't the first rapper to side with Donald Trump in an effort to go against Biden's tax plan. Last week, 50 Cent endorsed Trump after criticizing the former vice president's potential tax plan. However, after ex-girlfriend Chelsea Handler offered to pay Fif's taxes and appears to have alluded to offering a sexual proposition if he changes his mind on who he's voting for, 50 Cent stepped back on his support for Trump.
