Jim Jones Has Some Unpopular Opinions About Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton...

BET caught up with the rapper at Art Basel.

Published December 4, 2016

Jim Jones made a pit stop in Miami this weekend, right in time to experience the city's annual arts fair, fondly known as Miami Art Basel week.

During the weekend's festivities, the rapper caught up with BET to share some less-than-popular opinions regarding our nation's next president, all while walking through an art show honoring our current leader, President Barack Obama.

While taking a tour of the art show, titled "Visions of our 44th President," the Harlem rapper shared his two cents on what things will be like once our current POTUS completes his final term.

"Everybody has their own opinion of what the country is and where the country is at," Jones says. "I think it depends on where you're at in life with yourself."

He then goes on to discuss how people shouldn't rely on the Democratic party to fix all the country's problems, saying that too often people look for an easy way out. While Jones visits the exhibit honoring POTUS, he dives into his own political views, sharing his thoughts on the outcome of the election. He also discusses Donald Trump's controversial commentary while driving the point home that words truly hold power.

"His reply was so regular because what he was doing was so regular behind closed doors," the rapper shares, reflecting on Trump's "locker room" banter. Jones elaborates that while Trump's comments were horrific and hard to hear, that type of vulgar conversation is not necessarily unheard of between close friends. 

He then explains that he feels the whole situation helped others to view Trump as a regular person, therefore making it easier for others to relate to him as a candidate. Jones then goes on to talk about how Hillary Clinton didn't "have swag" and therefore was hard to relate to, all of which played a crucial role in the outcome of the election.
