Fat Joe explains why he had to get his hands on Donald Trump's new Never Surrender sneaker.

Fat Joe Defends Purchase of Donald Trump Sneaker

On Tuesday (Feb. 27), Fat Joe hopped on social media and defended his purchase of The Donald's new sneaker, despite not liking Trump.

"Why? If you really collect art, do you really know what Basquiat was into?" Fat Joe questioned in the video below. "Do you know what Andy Warhol was into? Any of these artists that you was into. You love the art, so you get it. I guess they separate art from the person."

"Now, me as a sneaker collector," he continued. "I had to get my hands on the Trumps. Doesn't matter...Listen, I have thousands of pairs of sneakers. When everyone flipped on Kanye, I went and bought the two most exclusive Kanyes ever...I gotta get my hands on them. Once again, I'm not a Trumper. I dislike Trump. I'm not voting for him. Not now, not never. But I'm a sneaker collector into the art. So, I had to find these."
