He followed that up with a statement at Thursday’s Premios Juventad Awards ceremony, presented by Univision, the Spanish-language broadcaster that spearheaded the Trump boycott movement by dropping his Miss USA Pageant. With his latest remarks, Pitbull wanted to strike a little more fear into the redheaded billionaire’s heart.
In an interview with Fusion, the Cuban-American hip-hop artist said he thinks that Trump’s focus on immigration gets people “mad and hot, and he’s gonna keep pushing it”, Politico reported.
When it comes to his relationship, if he ever even had one, with 2016 presidential hopeful Donald Trump.
He said, “I am not political”.
Pitbull referred to the newly escaped Sinaloa cartel leader Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, who escaped from a maximum security Prison in Mexico on Saturday. He also said he wouldn’t stay at a Trump hotel: “I can’t, just for the simple fact that you’re talking about a culture that I ride, I die for”.
Pitbull has a strong message for Donald Trump: Watch out for “El Chapo!” “This culture is the only reason I’m having this conversation right now”.
Pitbull received a rousing round of applause from the audience at the BankUnited Center venue in his hometown of Miami, Florida, when he suggested other presidential candidates such as Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio step up their game in order to beat Trump in the race.
In his live speech, Pitbull told the crowd: “I’m not a politician, I’m a musician, but most of all I’m Latino”, the superstar said in Spanish.
