Akon who spoke with Newsweek, hinted on contesting against Donald Trump in 2020. According to him, Donald Trump’s stance on a lot of things has him concerned about the future of the country.
“I’ve been thinking about running for 2020 very seriously. But I didn’t want to just do it because I feel like I want to continue doing what I’m doing and hope that builds me enough momentum [for people] to say, ‘You know what, if you run we’ll support you.’”
“I feel empowered. Honestly, I feel it’s gonna be a fight. I feel like I should be always ready for the unexpected. I feel very uncomfortable.”
He continued, “And I feel a lot of Americans do; even some white Americans feel that way because they’re watching backlash of his decisions. It’s not what’s happening now, because it’s clear it’s creating a whole bunch of divide today. But I think tomorrow that impact is going to be so much more devastating.”
On how things were under earlier President Barack Obama, before Trump took office in January 2017, Akon said;
“We really came a long way to get people to come together, and look at each other as humans, and work towards a common cause,” he told the magazine. “And now it seems like everything that was done is being undone, with gangs and race groups emerging. It’s just horrible.”
