Rapper says she 'takes it all back'
Azealia Banks has stated that she will no longer vote for Donald Trump following controversial comments that have recently come to light.
A 2005 conversation of Trump’s recently surfaced, seeing him boast about groping a married woman. In it, he says: “I moved on her and I failed, I’ll admit it… I did try and fuck her. She was married… I am automatically attracted to beautiful women. I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss, I don’t even wait… and when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… Grab them by the pussy. You can do anything.”
Having previously stated that she would vote for Trump because he’s “evil, like America”, Banks has now withdrawn her endorsement. She recently wrote on Facebook: “I made a major mistake endorsing toupey-toupee. Womens rights are important and we must protect them. I tried…. I reached …. I even carried …… I take it all back.”

Earlier this year, Banks said that she was “ready to admit” that she’s backing the billionaire. Writing on Twitter, Banks outlined her reasoning, saying she thought Trump is “the only one who truly has the balls to bust up big business”, criticising Democrats rival Hillary Clinton as being “too tied in with them” and left-leaning candidate Bernie Sanders as having “no clout”.
“I only trust this country to be what it is: full of shit,” she continued. “Takes shit to know shit so we may as well, put a piece of shit in the White House”.
“In conclusion, I think Donald Trump is evil like America is evil and in order for America to keep up with itself it needs him.”
Responding to the subsequent criticism she received from fans upon making the remarks, Banks later added: “No critical thinking allowed for the black woman. Sheesh.”
