Russell Simmons keeps it real about his former friend-turned-president Donald Trump. Here's what he had to say....

By now you’ve heard about the horrible acts of violence that took place over the weekend. Two mass shootings, rooted in racism and hatred, occurred, killing dozens of innocent people in El Paso, Texas and Dayton, Ohio.

In both cases, the shooters directly tied their desire to murder, to their support of President Donald Trump. This has caused many public figures to speak out, including old friend and common critic of the president, Russell Simmons.

He wrote a long post on Instagram, below an old photo of the and the president, alone side Melania Trump, P. Diddy, and Kimora Lee Simmons. He discusses his disdain for the president’s actions in office and condemns his recent speech in which he addressed the recent killings. He also mentioned that he made efforts in the past to enlighten Trump during their friendship (before he became president) when he would make ignorant and racist remarks.

“I took him to the mosque when he spoke poorly about Muslims, brought rabbis to his house when he made anti-sematic statements, and corrected him when he said any hateful things ...”.

He also wrote about introducing him to his African American girlfriend. Oh?

"i introduced him to his african american girlfriend who he dated directly before his first date with Melania (i tagged along for that ) all of that said..."

Oh.

See his entire post below.

I never cared about his politics Except on occasion where i had a chance to share mine ..i took him to the mosque when he spoke poorly about Muslims, brought rabbis to his office when he made anti Semitic statements, and “reminded him” when he made unconscious remarks or made any hateful statements...he was my friend because he was nice to me ,my family ..he was “ fun” he gave to my charities and he wasn’t in power ..When he announced ..i was among the first of his friends to speak publicly, i cared about this country more then any friendship. Yes i remember this picture .. and i remember Melania ... i introduced him to his african american girlfriend who he dated directly before his first date with Melania (i tagged along for that ) all of that said ...I immediately disconnected with him publicly when he announced his candidacy i was on cnn i remember my words “I would rather any of his reality star competition became president” i haven’t spoken to him since the day after i said that ..God he’s done a hellacious thing to this country let’s please stand up ...his speech without talk of gun control or racism as key points playing to the lowest smallest most ignorant ideas that America has to offer is shocking ... But we will stand tall vote him out and turn this around, i have faith ,resilience and i will work hard to deliver anyone else to the White House Lets all work together, we have a unifying call to go to work ...LETS GO Photo provided by @simmsvirgil

It’s hard to understand why Uncle Russ ever tolerated this man, let alone once called him a friend, and remained his friend to provide "teachable moments". Glad he has smarten up.
