You can say a lot of things about New York City radio DJ Charlamagne tha God's intrusive and hilarious interview style, but when the man speaks truth, he speaks truth.

During an interview with Sirius XM, Charlamagne warned Americans about what Donald Trump's presidential campaign means.


"The soul of the country is at stake in this election," Charlamagne said. "That's all he's doing, is preying directly on [poor white people].

"I'm from South Carolina," he continued. "I was in South Carolina around two weeks ago. As I drove through Columbia, all of those camouflage trucks, those pickup trucks I used to see with the Dixie flags on 'em, [now have] Trump bumper stickers. Trump bumper stickers.

"Trump bumper sticker is the new Confederate flag," Charlamagne said.

"Trump bumper sticker is the new Confederate flag," he said again. "Absolutely. All Donald Trump is doing is making America hate again."
