Legendary SoundCloud rapper Gazzy “Lil Pump” Garza spoke briefly at Monday night’s Donald Trump rally in Grand Rapids, Michigan on the eve before the November 3 presidential election. Garza took the opportunity to thank President Trump for bringing the troops home, and admonished the crowd to not vote for “Sleepy Joe” Biden.
Trump called out Lil Pump by name – albeit mispronouncing the rapper’s title as “Lil Pimp” – at Monday night’s rally in Michigan.
“There he is, how is it going, do you wanna come up and say something, do you wanna? Come on up. Lil Pump,” Trump said.
“Mr. President, I’ve come here to say Mr. President, I appreciate everything you’ve done for our country,” Pump said. “You brought the troops home and you are doing the right thing. MAGA 2020! Do not vote for Sleepy Joe at all!”

The “Gucci Gang” star received thunderous applause for his powerful endorsement of the President.
Lil Pump recently endorsed President Trump on Instagram, citing Democrat candidate Joe Biden’s unusually punitive tax plan:
“All I gotta say is Trump 2020 b**ch. F**k I look like paying 33 in tax for Biden, b**h ass n***a. F**k sleepy Joe n***a. Trump 2020 b**ch,” Pump said.

Lil Pump also posted a meme of himself shaking President Trump’s hand to his 17 million follower Instagram account with the caption “THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020.”
Since the endorsement, Lil Pump has appeared at multiple Trump rallies, festooned in MAGA 2020 apparel, and continuing to post videos showcasing his support for the President on social media.
While Biden has secured many of the celebrity endorsements typically received by Democrat politicians every election cycle, none appear to have generated as much voter enthusiasm as Pump’s endorsement of President Trump.
