Rapper “Lil Pump” has been doubling down on his endorsement of Donald Trump, and has threatened to leave the United States if Joe Biden is elected. As with some of the other rappers to show support for Donald Trump, such as 50 Cent, Lil Pump has expressed concerns about paying higher taxes under a Joe Biden presidency.
However, unlike 50 Cent, Pump is sticking to his guns. On Sunday night, he attended Trump’s rally in Florida, wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.

Then he went to Trump’s final rally for 2020 in Grand Rapids, Michigan, the following night. In Michigan, Trump called the rapper on stage in front of a cheering crowd, and identified him as “one of the big superstars of the world”. He also accidentally called the artist “Lil Pimp” in his introduction, but then corrected himself.
Speaking on the stage on Monday night, he said he “appreciates” what Trump has done during his first term, saying he “brought the troops home” and is “doing the right thing” for the country.
“MAGA [Make America Great Again] 2020,” he said, adding: “Don’t forget that, and do no vote for sleepy Joe at all.” He then left the stage.

Prior to the 2016 election, many famous liberals insisted that they would be moving to Canada if Trump won the election. Very few, if any, followed through on their promise, but now Pump is threatening to move to Columbia if Trump loses the election. He was also wearing a Donald Trump hat in the video where he threatened to leave the country.

just before the 2016 US election, Lil Pump tweeted the words: “F*** Donald Trump,” but he appears to have changed his mind over the past four years.
As of 2020, Lil Pump’s net worth is estimated to be $8 million.
Lil Pump broke into the mainstream with a repetitive luxury anthem, “Gucci Gang.” The track peaked at No. 3 and has since racked up more than 800 million YouTube videos, earning multiplatinum certification from the RIAA.
