Tye Tribbett is no politician but the gospel singer-songwriter has some words of advice for President Donald Trump.
The host of BET’s “Joyful Noise” seems to disagree with Trump’s methods of communication. In a BET video called “Joyful Noise: The Sound Off: Tye Tribbett Takes The Hot Seat,” Tribbett was asked what he would tell the president if given 15 minutes to speak with him. The musician and pastor said one of his biggest issues with Trump is what he says and tweets.
“If I had 15 seconds to speak to our president Trump I would encourage him to think before he tweets and talks. A lot of it is what he says and a lot of it is how he says it,” he said. “Racism is not new, even in our political judicial system to us.”
“That’s not the only issue I have with him but how he speaks is very important and what he says is very important,” Tribbett told BET. “If you’re going to be our leader you should lead with a little more tact and decency. I would encourage him in that direction.”
