Eminem looks to 'stomp' Trump with lyrical tirade

Video played during Tuesday's BET Awards

DETROIT, Michgan - Eminem has unleashed a lyrical tirade against President Donald Trump, saying he "came to stomp."
    
The rapper took aim at Trump in a 4½-minute freestyle rap video that aired as part of BET's Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday night. Eminem focused several times on Trump's ongoing campaign against NFL national anthem protests, rapping: "so we focus on that instead of talking Puerto Rico or gun reform for Nevada. All these horrible tragedies and he's bored and would rather cause a Twitter storm with the Packers." Eminem also derided Trump as "a kamikaze who will probably cause a nuclear holocaust."
    
Eminem closed the piece by saying people who don't support the president love the military and the country, but "hate Trump."
    
The White House didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
