Wyclef Jean Trolls Donald Trump In 'If I Was President' Remix Video

"Calm down Trump, calm down."

Wyclef Jean is back with a new politically charged track.

And the former Fugees singer doesn’t hold back in trolling Donald Trump in its official video, which Funny Or Die posted online Friday.

In the clip for “If I Was President 2016,” the rapper imagines what life in the White House will be like for the winner of the presidential election.

Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton would spend most of her time breakdancing on the Oval Office’s desk, according to Jean. 

Had Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) somehow gained power, he’d mostly be napping, the musican believes. And GOP nominee Trump? Well, he’d just be angry. 

“Calm down Trump, calm down,” aides of “President” Trump’s sing to him in the clip. But he gets even more frustrated and rips off his wig in anger.

The song is an updated version of Jean’s 2008 track “If I Was President,” in which he rallied against spending billions of dollars on wars.

In this revised edition, slated to feature on his “J’ouvert” EP due out late November, he again sings out about conflicts — and also makes reference to police brutality and gun violence.

Check it out in the clip above, and see Wyclef Jean performing it live on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Friday below:

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
