The rapper made the statement in a new interview with Elton John for 'Interview' magazine

Eminem has launched another stinging verbal attack on US President Donald Trump, claiming that “as long as [Trump’s] got his base, he does not give a fuck about anybody else in America”.

The rapper, who will release his ninth studio album ‘Revival’ on December 15, has been especially critical of the President in the past few months, with his distrust of Trump most notably visible in a vitriolic freestyle he recorded for the BET Awards back in October.

Eminem has ratcheted up the rhetoric against Trump further in a new feature for Interview magazine, which saw him being interviewed by Elton John.

Telling John that the subject matter of the aforementioned freestyle was something that he was “definitely very passionate about”, Eminem said it was “about having the right to stand up to oppression.”

“I mean, that’s exactly what the people in the military and the people who have given their lives for this country have fought for—for everybody to have a voice and to protest injustices and speak out against shit that’s wrong,” Eminem said.

“We’re not trying to disrespect the military, we’re not trying to disrespect the flag, we’re not trying to disrespect our country. But shit is going on that we want to make you aware of. We have a president who does not care about everybody in our country; he is not the president for all of us, he is the president for some of us. He knows what he’s doing.

“As long as he’s got his base, he does not give a fuck about anybody else in America,” he continued. “But guess what? There’s more of us than there are of them. I still feel like America is the greatest country to live in. This is my opinion. But we have issues that we need to work on and we need to do better.”

Earlier this week, Eminem released the tracklist for ‘Revival’ – revealing that the new record will feature an unlikely collaboration with Ed Sheeran.
