The onetime popstar revealed his political allegiance with a tweet

Aaron Carter has tweeted his allegiance to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Yesterday the American singer took to Twitter in response to Trump’s tweet about self-funding, writing: “Does America want to have a president who FOLLOWS or someone who leads? I vote For @realdonaldtrump”.

Soon after Carter was hit by a barrage of angry responses from fans, which he spent the next eight hours responding to.

One of his final tweets was frustration-fuelled: “I’m NOT to be fucking bullied around with. PERIOD.”

Back in 2013 Carter filed for bankruptcy after it was revealed that he was in over $2 million worth of debt.

Gossip site TMZ reported that the singer – who is the younger brother of Backstreet Boys singer Nick Carter and also had his own successful pop career when he was a child and teenager – has liabilities of $2,204,854 (£1,364,897) but lists his own assets at just $8,232.16 (£5,096). He also owes $1,368,140 (£847,197) to tax collection agency the IRS.

A representative for Carter, then aged 25, Steve Honig, told TMZ: “The overwhelming majority of the debt he is asking to be discharged is from more than 10 years ago when he was a minor and not in control of his finances.”
