Hillary Clinton’s final pitch in a bid to increase black turnout going into election day is that she’s supported by rappers, while Donald Trump is supported by the Ku Klux Klan.

Rappers Ne-Yo, Jay Z, Pharrell, and Pusha T have all been campaigning for Clinton in the lead up to next Tuesday’s election. Clinton made a surprise visit to North Carolina Central University, an historically black school, with Pharrell Thursday afternoon.

She later held a rally with Pharrell, during which Hillary spoke about how a Ku Klux Klan newspaper endorsed Trump weeks ago. She told rally attendees, “What would your life be like if he were in the White House? And the truth is we really don’t have to guess.”

That same day, President Barack Obama said Donald Trump would tolerate the KKK’s support if elected.

Statistics have shown that black early voting is down from 2012, something that will certainly hurt Hillary if it continues into Tuesday as a vast-majority of the demographic supports her.
