ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Rapper Eminem derided U.S. President Donald Trump as a racist and a reckless leader in a rap video that aired on Tuesday night (October 11) during the Black Entertainment Television Hip Hop Awards. Eminem told his fans in the four-minute unaccompanied vocal they must choose whether to support him or the president. "Racism is the only thing that he's fantastic for," Eminem rapped in the video that was taped on Friday (October 6) in a Detroit parking garage. Trump has previously dismissed accusations of racism. For example, he said in February he is "the least racist person." Representatives for the White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment about Eminem's rap, which was one of the most watched videos on YouTube early on Wednesday (October 11).
