Kendrick Lamar must have planned it that Donald Trump would be available to see him bare his mind on the political affairs of the US but he missed it. The halftime show at the CFP National Championship on Monday night got the American dishing out some thought-provoking expression which fans hoped Trump was around to listen to.
Apparently, uninterested President Trump left just before Kendrick Lamar’s performance.

Trump attended the CFB National Championship and stood on the field for the National Anthem ahead of the face-off between the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs. It is unclear whether Trump saw any of Lamar’s performance — he left at half time — but by attending the event in Atlanta, the President took a chance that he would be sitting through a show with an anti-Trump message.
President Trump has just departed Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz stadium. He left before Kendrick Lamar’s halftime performance.

Trump and Lamar were not at the same venue, but the Grammy-winning rapper’s performance was projected onto the big screens during the halftime show. The game was held at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and Lamar performed live at Atlanta’s Centennial Olympic Park.
Lamar, who often takes Trump to task in his lyrics, is outspoken on issues of social justice.
