Cher lets rip at ‘racist’ Trump in Twitter rant

Cher has laid into Donald Trump in a rant on Twitter — branding him a “racist”.

The singer let rip after Trump sparked controversy on Friday after singling out a black man in a crowd at a rally in Redding, CA, saying: “Oh, look at my African-American over here. Look at him. Are you the greatest?”

He made the comment while discussing an incident back in March where a black Trump supporter assaulted a protester in Tucson, AZ.

Cher said: “Does he know what a racist he is?”

The singer also had a dig at Trump’s previous call for a ban on Muslims entering the US, saying: “Muhammad Ali was black and Muslim. Would Trump have kicked him out?

She later responded to a comment by questioning whether Trump would “pick and choose” which Muslims he would allow into the US.
