How is he supposed to run the country when people don't even want to be on the same stage as him?
The Weeknd and rapper Belly refused to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday because Donald Trump was on the interview lineup. Although the award winning crooner, late night host, and presumptive presidential nominee stayed quiet on the matter, Belly talked to the Associated Press about his decision to ditch the appearance.
"I feel like the way I was raised was to be able to see through all the titles in this world — from religion to race. I just didn't want to feel like I was a part of a celebration for somebody who has beliefs that [the] majority of us don't agree with," he said in a statement.
The show must go on, though! The Donald even challenged Bernie Sanders to a debate during the program, and the Democratic hopeful replied, "Game on" via Twitter.
What is the country coming to?!
