John Legend goes scorched earth on Trump and reveals why he thinks the former ... trends now

Singer and activist John Legend continued his long-running feud with former President Donald Trump, calling him a 'tried and true, dyed-in-the-wool racist' in an interview Sunday.

Legend, 45 and his wife, model and author Chrissy Teigen, have long professed their disdain for Trump, with the ex-Commander-in-Chief even sniping back once.

Speaking with former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki, the 'All of You' singer continued his oft-repeated claims that Trump holds racial prejudices when asked about Trump's complaints about the US justice system.

'He's made it clear throughout his life that Black people are inferior, he believes that to his core, in his bones... but also when you hear some of the stray comments he makes, he clearly believes in a genetic hierarchy of humanity and is racially determined, so he is a tried and true, dyed-in-the-wool racist,' Legend said. 

Legend believes this cancels out any benefit the black community may have had under Trump's rule.

'There is a two-tiered justice system, but not in the way that he thinks. He's the beneficiary, absolutely ... the fact that he's out in the world, that's not normal for a lot of people.' 

'He's gotten away with a lot for a long time, he's been a fraudster for a long time, he's been cheating people for a long time, he's been lying for a long time and he's actually been litigating for a long time,' he added.

Legend - born John Roger Stephens - has been speaking out against Trump since he began running for public office.

His belief that Trump is a racist dates at least to 2016, when he feuded with Trump's son Don Jr, whom the singer was classmates at the University of Pennsylvania. 

The singer even said that he ended his friendship with rapper Ye - formerly Kanye West - over his support of the ex-president.
