Chicago rapper Vic Mensa took to Twitter Sunday to link presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s “hateful rhetoric” to the deadly terror attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida that resulted in 49 people being murdered and another 53 injured by a Muslim man who reportedly declared loyalty to the Islamic State.

Before the identities of the dead were known and their loved ones notified, Mensa was on social media tying the horrific attack to Trump.

“This is why we cant let Donald Trump be president,” the Grammy-nominated rapper tweeted.

“I’m not blaming the shooting on Trump,” Mensa continued, “But the hateful rhetoric he preaches and the type of supporters he attracts inflame these issues.”

Trump initially posted tweets expressing his condolences for the “victims & their families.”

Mensa continued his Twitter tear by blaming Donald Trump’s “speeches” and “divisive comments about Muslims” for “fueling hate” in America.

Mensa was one of a number of musicians and actors who angrily took on Trump in the wake of Sunday’s deadly terror attack, as Breitbart News previously reported.

Actress Olivia Wilde called Trump “disgusting” while director Judd Apatow called the GOP White House hopeful a “self serving, terrifying dumbass.”
