(RNN) - Eminem made a strong statement when he attacked President Donald Trump in an expletive-laced freestyle during the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards.

He rapped for almost five minutes as he addressed issues such as Puerto Rico, the border wall, Charlottesville, Steve Bannon, immigration, North Korea, Twitter and national anthem protests.

At one point during the freestyle, named “The Storm,” the rapper mentioned former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and raised his fist in support of the protests that Kaepernick started in 2016.

Eminem gave a direct message as he raised the middle finger to any of his Trump-supporting fans after he finished rapping.

“And any fan of mine who’s a supporter of his, I’m drawing in the sand a line, you’re either for or against,” he rapped.

The BET Awards aired Tuesday night, but the freestyle was pre-recorded.
