Azealia Banks says She'll Vote for Donald Trump if He Wins GOP Nomination

"I have no hope for America. It is what it is," she tweeted.

Azealia Banks is no stranger to controversial speech, and while she denies it, many believe she makes outlandish comments for reaction and publicity.

One could make the same argument for a series of tweets she made earlier today (February 1). The Harlem native took to Twitter just a few hours ago and felt, in honor of today’s Iowa Caucuses, she should announce her general election favorite for President.

“Ok so, I think I'm ready to admit that I'm going to vote for Donald Trump,” she relayed via the social media site. “I think Trump is the only one who truly has the balls to bust up big business. Hilary is too tied in with them and Bernie has no clout.” She then explained her growing cynicism of American politics in trademark Azealia Banks fashion. “I only trust this country to be what it is: full of sh*t. takes sh*t to know shit so we may as well, put a piece of sh*t in the White House.”

Responding to any criticism that her recent Twitter pot-stirrer is anything but, Banks replied, "No critical thinking allowed for the black woman. Sheesh." Donald Trump has yet to respond to her endorsement.

She’s not the first in hip hop to publicly throw her support behind the billionaire candidate. Chingy recently endorsed Trump, but then withdrew after being crucified for his backing.

The last time Azealia Banks made headlines was after she allegedly assaulted a female security guard outside of a nightclub. Following the incident she was charged with third-degree misdemeanor assault.

Coverage of the Iowa Caucuses begin at 8 pm EST tonight.
