John Legend Would Consider Voting for Trump Under One Circumstance


John Legend‘s distaste for Donald Trump is well-documented. In an interview with The Daily Beast earlier this month, he said “I don’t think we should be electing Donald Trump as president and I’m supportive of Hillary’s campaign. There’s nothing that can shock me anymore, but at this point, Trump’s made it very clear how his temperament is, how his personality is, what his level of intellectual depth is when it comes to policy, and he’s made it abundantly clear that he’s utterly unqualified to be president—no matter what your political views are.”

He continued, “his entry into being a Republican was questioning the citizenship of the first black president. We know who he is, he’s made it clear who he is, and now it’s time to show up and vote. He never was a winning candidate.”

His Twitter history tells a similar story. In March, he and Donald Trump, Jr. got into an argument about Trump’s racism after a rally in Chicago was cancelled due to protestors:

This week, Legend got political on Twitter again. After Colin Kaepernick became the center of everyone’s attention after protesting police brutality by refusing to stand for the National Anthem, he expressed that he also doesn’t like it:

He also pointed out the irony that Trump suggested Kaepernick “find a country that works better for him” when he’s run an entire Presidential campaign on how terrible the United States is.

There is, however, one circumstance under which he might consider voting for the man. When a Twitter user asked Legend what it would take for him to vote for Trump, he had the perfect response:

There you have it.
