At his final rally before polling day in Michigan last night, Donald Trump announced: “One of the big superstars of the world… Little Pimp!”
Speaking to a crowd in Grand Rapids, Trump decided to pull up the ‘Gucci Gang’ rapper on stage with him, before correcting himself and stating the rapper’s actual name.

Lil Pump, who collaborated with Kanye West on ‘I Love It‘, went on to voice his support for the 45th president’s re-election, saying: “Hello everybody, how you guys feeling? I’ve come here to say Mr President I appreciate everything you have done for our country. You brought the troops home and are doing the right thing. MAGA 202020, don’t forget that!”
A selection of US rappers including Lil Wayne, 50 Cent and Ice Cube were criticised recently for endorsing Trump’s policies.
Meanwhile Beyoncé officially endorsed the Biden/Harris ticket by wearing a hat in a bid for Democratic support.
Americans will vote for their next President today, with Joe Biden currently leading the way in the final national polls.
UPDATE (16/11/20): According to reports, Lil Pump did not cast a vote at the ballot box and did not register, either.
Pump, whose real name is Gazzy Garcia, does not show up as a registered voter on Florida state voter rolls, as reported by The Smoking Gun.
