Don’t expect Pitbull to support Donald Trump anytime soon, in Trump’s presidential campaign or at his hotels. In a video interview on Fusion’s America with Jorge Ramos, the singer called out Trump for having “a big ego,” referencing comments Trump made about Mexican immigrants during his campaign announcement.
“Donald Trump doesn’t become Donald Trump by being ignorant,” Pitbull said. “He may have a big ego — we’ve all know that for years. What I think is that he found a button that he likes, and he sees that he got people mad and hot and he’s gonna keep pushing it.”
When asked if he would stay at a Trump hotel, Pitbull said, “Due to what’s been said, I wouldn’t be able to. I can’t, just for the simple fact that you’re talking about a culture that I ride, I die for. This culture is the only reason I’m having this conversation right now.”
