“One of the great superstars of the world; Little Pimp” – that’s how Donald Trump introduced the rapper Lil Pump on stage at a last preselection rally on Tuesday morning.
The President had accidentally misspelled the name of one of his more recent high-profile endorsements at an event in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Trump introduced Lil Pump, whose real name is Gazzy Garcia, at the event, Trump told the crowd, “I love your sound, I love your music. And speaking of sound and music and other things – one of the greatest superstars in the world; Lil Pimp!
The president seems to have realized his mistake and added: “There he is. Do you want to come up and say something? Lil Pump? Does everyone know who he is? Do you know how tall he is? Come on up, that’s a nice hat.”
The “Gucci Gang” rapper, 20, came on stage wearing a MAGA hat and addressed the crowd.

“Hello everybody, how are you feeling?” he said. “I came here to tell you, Mr. President, that I appreciate everything you have done for our country. You brought the troops home and you are doing the right thing. MAGA 202020 don’t forget that!”
Talking to Joe Biden, he added: “And don’t vote for sleepy Joe-all!”
A video of Trump’s little slip made the rounds on Twitter, where people are not surprisingly amused about the mistake.
And… Lil’ Pimp entered the stage in Grand Rapids to ask people to vote for President Trump.

This week, Lil Pump threatened to leave the USA if Trump was not re-elected.
“Yo, no cap… If Trump doesn’t get reelected, I’m pulling the f*** out of here n****,” he recently said in a post in his Instagram Story, per Complex. “I’m going to colombia, fuck it.”
The rapper resorted to social media last Sunday to declare his support for the Republican while insulting Democratic candidate Biden.
“THE DAY I MET TRUMP #trump202022020,” he wrote next to a manipulated photo of him and the president.
“All I have to say is Trump 2020 b****,” he said. “F*** I look like paying 33 additional taxes for Biden, b***** ass n-. F**** Sleepy Joe n- Trump 2020 b****.”
The Miami-based rapper followed one of 50 Cent’s set example, as the rapper himself had previously expressed concerns about Biden’s proposed tax rate for top earners.
Pump’s endorsement of Trump came shortly after Lil Wayne received a backlash for meeting with the president and supporting his reelection.
