Singer John Legend brands Donald Trump ‘racist’ in Twitter feud

Washington: Singer and song-writer John Legend has branded US presidential candidate Donald Trump “racist” in a twitter feud with Trump's son.

Reacting to the cancellation of one of his father's rallies in Chicago on Friday, Donald Trump Jr. chastised the protesters, saying that they didn’t know why they were anti-Trump.

The rally had to be postponed because of security reasons after student protesters stormed the venue at the University of Illinois.

However, the “All Of Me hitmaker” quickly hit back saying that “they were protesting (his) racist father”.

In response to his allegations, Trump Jr said that racism “can’t be the answer for everything you don’t like”.

Twitter trolls initially accused the singer of having “no education” for his remark but they were swiftly shut down when he revealed that he and the Trumps attended the same university.
