What has Mopreme said about Trump leaving a ticket for Tupac at one of his rallies?

Mopreme spoke out about the Trump campaign's stunt to mock Democrat Sen Kamala Harris after she mistakenly said the late Tupac was her "favourite rapper alive."

Jason Miller, senior communications manager for the Trump campaign, then said a seat was being reserved for Tupac at the 7 October debate.

“We have left a ticket for Tupac Shakur, Senator Harris' favorite rapper alive,”

"I'm personally more of a Biggie fan, if he's still alive, but we will have a ticket for Tupac."

Mopreme Shakur told TMZ that the stunt was "clearly disrespectful" to his family

He said: "We should know Trump's lack of respect for the black and brown community," 

He added he would like an apology but said he knew that the President wouldn’t give one.

Instead Mopreme said Donald Trump could make it up to him by releasing his father Mutulu – Tupac’s stepfather – from prison.

Mutulu was sentenced in 1988 to 60 years behind bars for the RICO conspiracy, armed bank robbery and bank robbery killings.
