Rapper criticizes president for issues during presidency

DETROIT – If you haven't been on social media Tuesday, then you've probably missed the story everyone is talking about.

Rapper Eminem took aim at President Donald Trump in a four-minute freestyle rant that was shot in Detroit last week. He criticized Trump for issues such as immigration, racism and his battle with the NFL.

The rant aired on BET during an awards show.

The rant is getting a lot of attention on social media. Some people aren't happy, while others are supporting it.

"Racism's the only thing he's fantastic for," Eminimen said at one point in the rant.

He talked about how Trump uses Twitter and mentions the most recent debate about NFL players kneeling for the national anthem.

Eminem ended his video with a message to any of his fans who are supporters of Trump.

"Any fan of mine who's a supporter of his, I'm drawing a line in the sand, you're either for or against," he said.
