Aaron Carter: Why I’m Voting for Trump
This is Aaron Carter’s first time participating in the political process and he’s coming out swinging!
Recently, Aaron decided to share a tweet, endorsing a candidate in the presidential race. “Does America want to have a president who FOLLOWS or someone who leads?” he wrote. “I vote For @realdonaldtrump.”
Soon Carter was hit with a hailstorm of criticism and questions from fans and foes alike. Aaron had somehow stirred up a hornets nest, so GQ spoke with the pop singer about why he endorsed Donald Trump and what issues are important to him.
“It was more than just a tweet, I guess. I support Donald Trump. I don’t support every little thing. Trump goes his own way. He’s a leader, not a follower, and he’s proven that by humbling the other campaigns. I think in regards to him becoming president, well, the electoral college will be the decider.”
The former teen idol made it clear that he doesn’t approve of the real estate mogul’s plan to ban gay marriage or build a wall on the Mexican border, but he respects Trump’s command of his campaign and has hopes that the businessman will improve his policies before the general election.
“Well, I mean, there’s still time to see how it works out. And I haven’t even made my vote. If Trump can’t change some of his ways of thinking, then I’m just going to sit this one out,” he said.
