    The rapper apparently falls into the category of Americans that make over $400,000 a year, and the former vice president has vowed to raise taxes on this group if elected on 3 November.

    Rapper Gazzy Garcia, more known as Lil Pump, has expressed support for President Donald Trump in his re-election bid, according to his recently posted media content.

    In an Instagram story, Pump can be heard saying "Trump 2020" at least two times, while adding he doesn't feel like paying "an extra 33" in taxes for "sleepy Joe".

    WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE

    The singer also shared a photoshopped image showing "him" and the US president shaking hands.

    The reaction on social media has been controversial, however. While some users have found it amusing and were waiting for President Trump to tweet "thanks" to the rapper, others were disappointed in the singer's choice.

    Some netizens made jokes hinting that average conservative voters wouldn't actually know who exactly Lil Pump is.

    Other users suggested the rapper wasn't actually being sincere but is instead just trying to boost his clout.

    Ironically, Lil Pump did not seem to show much support for Trump earlier, as in 2017, the rapper posted a tweet saying "F*ck Trump" just after the release of his hit "Gucci Gang".
