Rapper 50 Cent mocked President Trump’s nuclear button tweet to North Korea’s leader as just “stuff you do in the neighborhood.”
The 42-year-old entertainer, whose real name is Curtis Jackson, claimed the president was “bluffing” with his challenge to Kim Jong Un in tweet this week declaring he has a “bigger “nuclear button on his desk.
“That’s stuff you do in the neighborhood. Like if you know somebody got a problem with you, you’re like, ‘You want a problem? No problem,’ ” the rapper, born in Queens, N.Y. like Trump, told host Stephen Colbert Thursday on CBS’ “The Late Show.”
“He’s bluffing. That’s how you bluff. But you don’t bluff with the entire world. What the f***! You don’t do that!” he continued. “He doesn’t want that smoke. We don’t want that smoke — like none of us. We don’t want that to take place.”
The “Den of Thieves” star pointed out that he thinks Trump “didn’t want the job” as president to begin with.
“To be honest, I think it was like an accident,” he said. “When something happens by accident, you’re not prepared for it.
Trump was actually “trying to get a great renegotiation for ‘The Apprentice,’” the rapper quipped. “He wanted to lose the presidency. He didn’t want the job.”
The musician and TV producer claimed last year that he turned down a $500,000 offer to stump for Trump on the campaign trail, according to The Hill.
“Before he got elected, they were having issues with the African-American vote,” Jackson said. “They wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign just to make an appearance. I was like, ‘Nah, that’s not good money.’ ”
