LONDON - Vocalist for the Black Eyed Peas, rapper Will.I.Am has said US president Barack Obama is “stressed” over his crumbling popularity among Americans.
But the singer was vocal in his backing for the president saying he only tried to make things better.
“I saw him three months ago. Went to visit him at the White House, he was stressed. It’s sad that people don’t realise he’s not the one that caused this. He was the one who said, ‘Let me take a crack at fixing this’,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Will.I.Am as saying.
He urged Americans to back their president, insisting the financial meltdown is “worse” than the terror attacks of 9/11.
“You would think that, if the country was in a shambles, the Democrats and the Republicans would pull together. Immature, isn’t it? There are no jobs in America and it’s getting worse. Bad as 9/11 was,” he said.
The rapper said the present situation was worse than the terror attacks since it is dividing the country.
“This is worse because the terror isn’t about airplanes through buildings, the terror is people not being able to unite, the Divided States of America,” he said.
