    Macklemore, the rapper known for his popular hits like “Thrift Shop” and “Same Love,” led a crowd of people to chant “F*ck Donald Trump” during a show in Tempe, Arizona on Saturday night. This comes shortly after rapper Eminem released a new cypher dubbed “The Storm” that also trashed Donald Trump.

    The track, titled "FDT (F*ck Donald Trump) Part 2," a collaboration between rappers YG, G-Eazy and Macklemore, was released last year during the 2016 election. The song features lyrics like, ‘How'd he make it this far? How the f*ck did it begin? A Trump rally sounds like Hitler in Berlin,' and "If truth be told, Donald is a terrorist, reasons why the world's got a problem with Americans."

    During the chorus, which repeats the words "F*ck Donald Trump," the Arizona crowd sang along as people held up their middle fingers. Apparently no booing was heard from the crowd during the "F**K Donald Trump" segment. 

    According to the Independent, one concertgoer said that Macklemore "gave a great and moving speech about inclusiveness and acceptance before playing ‘Same Love,' " while another fan said that the rapper told the crowd that "everyone should be welcome here no matter which side of the ‘line' you stood on."

    This isn't the first time that the 34-year-old rapper has criticized Trump. Following the November election, Macklemore shared a sleeping picture of his daughter with the caption, "I am disappointed, shocked and shaken at my core by what has transpired tonight… I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious belief, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they're from."

    In Eminem's new provocative track criticizing Trump, he also drops the F-bomb, rapping, "Any fan of mine who is a supporter of his, I'm drawing in the sand a line — you're either for or against — and if you can't decide who you like more and you're split on who you should stand beside, I'll do it for you this this: F**k you."
