    "People trying to tear us apart, people trying to make us turn against each other,” the rapper said, speaking to a crowd of fans.

    Drake also made a point to highlight the different races of people who were in attendance at his concert, as well, saying, "My proudest moment — if you take a look around in this room, you'll see people from all races and all places — and all we did tonight was come inside this building, show love, celebrate life, more life, and more music."

    All before launching into a very pointed statement about President Trump. "And I just want you to understand if you ever thought for a second that any one man is going to tear this world apart you're out of your motherfucking mind. It's on us to keep this shit together. Fuck that man," he said.

    "For some reason in my room they got the TVs set to CNN. Every day I wake up, I see all this bullshit going on in the world. People trying to tear us apart, people trying to make us turn against each other. So tonight, my proudest moment isn’t selling tickets or having people sing my songs. My proudest moment — if you take a look around in this room, you'll see people from all races and all places — and all we did tonight was come inside this building, show love, celebrate life, more life, and more music. And I just want you to understand if you ever thought for a second that any one man is going to tear this world apart you're out of your motherfucking mind. It's on us to keep this shit together. Fuck that man."
