While Banks made no direct reference to Trump’s call for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States,” her tweets come as the Republican presidential front-runner faces a global firestorm and bipartisan pushback over his latest proposal.
“Donald trump is really a f—ing idiot lol,” the “Broke with Expensive Taste” rapper tweeted, adding in a series of tweets that while she “agreed with him one teeny-tiny-eeny-weeny bit on ONE tiny-teeny thing,” Trump is “truly embarrassing the Gemini community right now. Way worse than I ever have… And that is saying ALOT.”
Noting that she and Trump share the same horoscope sign, the outspoken 24-year-old hip hop star added, “I hereby announce, on behalf of the entire Gemini community that Donald Trump is disqualified.”
A statement by White House press secretary Josh Earnest Tuesday that Trump’s proposal to ban Muslims “disqualifies” him from serving as President sparked a social media wave, as #TrumpDisqualifiedParty trended on Twitter.
Meanwhile, the billionaire mogul repeatedly defended his proposal, saying it is only “temporary” until “the country’s representatives can figure out what’s going on.”
