President Donald Trump’s campaign left the late rapper, Tupac Shakur, a ticket to the vice presidential debate as a dig to Kamala Harris following a recent interview, according to the New York Post

In an interview with Angela Rye last month, Harris was asked who is “the best rapper alive” in her opinion.

“Tupac,” Harris responded and chuckled when the Democratic vice presidential nominee realized her error. 

 

Trump’s campaign senior adviser, Jason Miller, confirmed that a ticket was left for the 90’s rapper as Vice President Mike Pence and Harris faced off on the debate stage on Wednesday, the New York Post reported. 

“I can confirm that we have left a ticket for Tupac Shakur, who as we know is Sen. Harris’ favorite rapper alive,” Miller said to journalists during a conference call. “I don’t know if he shows up.
