Artist leading crowds of people in chants of “F**k Donald Trump” has almost become a tradition, Eminem doing while performing at Reading Festival, J Cole having done the same.

Performing in Arizona, Macklemore played through his YG collaboration titled “F**k Donald Trump Part 2”, encouraging the sold-out crowd to sing along.

The song features the lyric: “How’d he make it this far? How the f--k did it begin? A Trump rally sounds like Hitler and Berlin.”

One concertgoer told Fox News after that the rapper “gave a great and moving speech about inclusiveness and kindness and acceptance” before playing through “Same Love”.

During the “F**k Donald Trump” segment, there was apparently no booing from anyone in the crowd, people holding up their middle finger.

The song Macklemore performed managed to reach number 50 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs list last year.

According to the attendee, Macklemore “then gave another speech about immigration and acceptance,” telling the crowd “everyone should be welcome here no matter which side of the ‘line’ you stood on.”
