Nicki Minaj shared her opinion on the 2016 presidential candidates with Billboard magazine. While complimenting Hilary Clinton on her perseverance, the “Anaconda” raptress said that Donald Trump’s presidential run would be a very good reality show if his team filmed it.
“There are points [Donald] has made that may not have been so horrible if his approach wasn’t so childish,” Nicki tells the magazine, which noted that the interview was conducted prior to Donald’s controversial comments about banning Muslim immigrant from entering the U.S. The “Superbass” hitmaker added, “But in terms of entertainment – I think he’s hilarious. I wish they could just film him running for president. That’s the ultimate reality show.”
When asked about Hilary, Nicki was not really convinced about her capabilities. “Am I convinced that she should be the next president? I still want to be open-minded about everyone,” the 33-year-old rapper said, adding, “Obviously, I identify with her struggles as a woman. I identify with the fact that when she’s in that room and there are nothing but men there – there’s sometimes something in her that must feel intimidated. But I think that she uses that and turns it into a strength.”
“I love her for sticking it out,” Nicki continued. “She has gone through horrifying things, even within her marriage. She has been brave and weathered the storm. And continued being a boss. That’s something that every woman should feel inspired by, no matter if you’re voting for her or not.”
