Akon told Newsweek that he is definitely serious about running against Trump in the next presidential election in 2020.
“I’ve been thinking about running for 2020 very seriously, but I didn’t want to just do it because I feel like I want to continue doing what I’m doing and hope that builds me enough momentum (for people) to say, ‘You know what, if you run we’ll support you.’”
When he was asked how he felt about “Trump’s America” given the administration’s views on immigration, Akon said that he feels a lot more unsafe.
He continued, “I feel very uncomfortable. And I feel a lot of Americans do; even some white Americans feel that way because they’re watching backlash of his decisions. It’s not what’s happening now, because it’s clear it’s creating a whole bunch of divide today. But I think tomorrow that impact is going to be so much more devastating.”
