The young singer/songwriter also used his late-night platform to make a political statement: he took the stage wearing a Mexican soccer jersey with the name "Trump"—who was also a guest on last night's show—crossed out on the back. According to Vice, Raury explained, "Trump embodies separation, solving problems with anger, fear, and personal differences. I’m all about the opposite, about being inclusive and open." The singer also wrote on Twitter: "I got love for my Hispanic community I stand with all people in times of oppression."
