Lupe Fiasco: 'Barack Obama is a terrorist'

Rapper slams US president and the nation's foreign policy

Lupe Fiasco: 'Barack Obama is a terrorist'
Lupe Fiasco has said he believes US President Barack Obama is "a terrorist."

The rapper, who was being interviewed on online talk show What's Trending with Shira Laza said he also believed the United States' foreign policy was causing more problems than it was solving.

He said: "To me the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America."

He continued: "The root cause of terrorists is the stuff the US government allows to happen. The foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. I don’t want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere."

Lupe Fiasco, who is from Chicago, where Obama served as a senator before he became president, is currently promoting his new album 'Lasers', which came out in March of this year.
