When asked about Trump wanting to "make America great again," T.I. strongly looked at the person posing the question and had an answer ready to roll.

"When was America great for us? There was slavery, women couldn’t vote, black people weren’t entire citizens, crack epidemic, all the times were shit times for us! So whatever time he’s trying to get back to, we need to get far from."

T.I.'s representatives were not immediately available for comment. Watch the TMZ clip above.
