Waka Flocka Flame Endorses Donald Trump’s 2024 Presidential Campaign, Marking a Dramatic Shift in Stance

Published:

In an unexpected turn of events, rapper Waka Flocka Flame has openly endorsed Donald Trump and his 2024 presidential campaign, despite his prior criticisms and disavowals of the former president.

On Monday, October 16, the Flockaveli rapper expressed his support for the controversial businessman-turned-politician with a straightforward tweet: “TRUMP2024.” He further solidified his endorsement by sharing a photo of himself alongside Donald Trump, standing in front of a presidential seal, which he also made his new profile picture. Whether the two actually met or if the image was digitally altered remains uncertain, but the message conveyed is crystal clear.

Waka Flocka Flame has experienced a complete 180-degree shift in his views toward Donald Trump, considering that he was vocally critical of the former president just a few years ago. During Trump’s initial presidential campaign in 2015, Waka Flocka Flame took to Twitter to exclaim, “F**k Donald J. Trump.” He also voiced his objections during an interview on SiriusXM, stating, “I’m not voting for Donald Trump because he’s for money. In a time like this, we need somebody that’s for the people, and Trump is definitely not for the people.”

The rapper’s disdain for Trump was made even more apparent in 2017 when, during a performance in Athens, Georgia, he noticed a fan holding up a jersey with “Trump” written on it. Initially, he seemed to accept the political fashion statement, saying, “Hold that sht up, bruh. That’s a Trump jersey right? Throw that sht up here.” However, as soon as he had the jersey in his hands, he pulled down his pants and used the shirt to wipe his bare backside.

Waka Flocka Flame’s stance began to change a few years ago when he was recognized for his humanitarian efforts in the community. In 2021, he received a lifetime achievement award, which was authorized by the Trump administration just before Trump left office in January of that year. The award acknowledged Waka Flocka Flame’s volunteer work for the Chicago non-profit organization Daughter of Destiny. In a recorded clip, Pastor Apostle Dr. Bridget Outlaw presented him with the award and placed the medal around his neck, during which he expressed gratitude to President Trump and others who have supported his charitable endeavors.
