Akon has been quietly keeping his music career going and while overseeing his philanthropic efforts to bring electricity to Africa. The Senegalese-American singer came forth in a new video declaring President Donald Trump as “courageous” but did so as he blasted the former mogul for not having enough nuance in the position he now wields.
Akon took to a cell phone video picked up by TMZ to speak to his fans about President Trump’s tough-talking ways. In the clip, the singer suggests that former president Barack Obama was a far more gentle diplomat than the gun-slinging ways of America’s current leader. He added that while he thought Trump was the “most courageous president ever,” Akon stressed that there needs to be a different approach as it relates to foreign affairs.
It appears that Akon might have been inspired to speak on the president, this after the fiasco this weekend regarding the so-called “Muslim ban” executive order that has dominated the news cycle since the weekend.
