Nicki Minaj slammed Melania Trump as not the right “kind” of woman for the White House during a concert over the weekend.
The 33-year-old rapper told the crowd at the Tidal X concert in New York City, that past leaders have had strong wives and then implied that Donald Trump’s wife was anything but that. (RELATED: Nicki Minaj: Donald Trump Just Needs To Work On His Approach)
“Barack needed Michelle bitch,” Minaj said. ” And Bill needed a motherfucking Hillary bitch. You better pray to God you don’t get stuck with a motherfucking Melania.” (RELATED: Nicki Minaj Just Posted A Topless Photo Online)

Minaj later responded that she wasn’t “dragging” the woman who could be the next first lady — just that she was not the right woman for a person running for the top job in the country.
“Wasn’t “dragging,” Minaj tweeted. “She seems nice. But a smart man knows he needs a certain “kind” of woman when running for President/attempting greatness.”

The rapper made it clear she liked Hillary Clinton in December last year when she said she said she identifies with her as a woman, but said she was keeping an “open-mind” about the election.
“I support her as a woman,” Minaj said. “Am I convinced that she should be the next president? I still want to be open-minded about everyone.”
“Obviously, I identify with her struggles as a woman,” she added. “I identify with the fact that when she’s in that room and there are nothing but men there — there’s sometimes something in her that must feel intimidated. But I think that she uses that and turns it into a strength. Because that’s what I’ve always done. And so I love her for sticking it out.”
