Chuck D: 'America Might Be Three Countries By 2050'
(AllHipHop News) Rap pioneer Chuck D still fears America will no longer be united in 2050.
The Public Enemy star predicted the U.S. would be a split nation by the middle of the 21st century during an interview with talk show host Tavis Smiley a decade ago, and now he's convinced we won't need to wait another 30 years, thanks to the damage done by current leader Donald Trump.
"I predicted that America wouldn't be in one piece by 2050 and that it would be split up into three different countries," the "Fight the Power" hitmaker tells Rolling Stone.
"I still think that the United States of America has never really been united in the last 50 years, and it might be three countries by 2050 if there's still a planet," Chuck D said.
And the hardcore hip-hop icon admits he fears for a future without "clown" Trump as President, adding, "I don't think he will last his term, with health reasons just being one of them.
"He ain't a quitter, but he'll be forced to get out of there. And then we gotta face (Vice President) Mike Pence, who is a nightmare. Trump is a clown. Pence is a nightmare."
