Chingy just took to Twitter to officially declare his support for Republican nominee Donald Trump for president, citing his experience as a businessman. "@realDonaldTrump knows how to conduct business. This country is a business an needs to be ran by a businessman."

After sharing his support, social media erupted into an uproar of response and Chingy took to his Instagram page to address "all of you who are taking this out of context." Chingy joins a growing list of artists who are also making their political preferences known. Killer Mike and Lil B previously announced their support for Bernie Sanders. Demi Lovato joined Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail to show her support for the nominee.
