VL Action Network and comedy group Room 28 made a video called “I Won’t Vote For Trump #IWVFU” in response to presidential candidate Donald Trump’s comments that Mexican immigrants “have lots of problems.”
The four-minute video goes to the tune of Big Sean’s “IDFWU” featuring E-40. It starts with a recording of Trump’s comments, made back in June saying that people coming to the United States from Mexico are drug runners and rapists. An actor portraying Trump then gets into a car and his chauffeur, Elmo Difoca, played by Jerry Diaz, performs a rap that blasts the real estate mogul.
“Your bigotry will never reach Capitol Hill,” Difoca raps, “Saying we’re only sending over criminals and rapists / But Trump don’t know hard work ’cause his daddy was rich / But together we can achieve whatever we aspire / Got his deals canceled and he got told ‘You’re fired’ / Why you so orange is that from a tanning booth? / Out here looking like an old orangutan in a suit / Only way you can make America great again is if you go away ’cause I won’t vote for you”
“You’re fired,” was one of Trump’s signature sayings from his reality show The Apprentice, from which he removed himself as host to focus on his campaign. NBC (the network that airs The Apprentice), Univision and Macy’s have all cut ties with Trump.
VL Action Network is a special interest group that seeks to advocate for the Latino voice in politics and support leaders who seek progress for the Latino community.
Room 28 is an American comedy group that derives its name from a Dominican saying “el cuarto veinte y ocho,” based on an insane asylum in the Dominican Republic.
Snow Tha Product has also spoken out against Trump’s racist remarks.
“You’re just stupid to say something like that,” she said to HipHopDX in July. “Why would you ever think that you could run for office? If anyone takes them seriously they’re just stupid and they should definitely be kicked out of this country because I don’t want them here and I’m American.”
