The Akademiks/Trump Ticket?

DJ Akademiks shares photos of him posing with Donald Trump at a UFC event from this past weekend, to the humor and ridicule of social media users

UFC 287 took place this past weekend (Apr. 8) and included the appearance of a number of notable names, such as Kid Rock, Mike Tyson, and DJ Akademiks. Perhaps the most talked about individual there, however, was former president Donald Trump.

The former Commander in Chief was accompanied by his oldest son Donald Trump Jr., joining the audience in enjoying the fights. UFC fighters Jorge Masvidal and Kevin Holland made their appreciation towards the ex-president quite known at the event, and Akademiks, as evidenced by a social media post, wanted to be in on saying hello to the Donald.

In a Instagram post, Akademiks shared a photo of him posing with Trump, with a caption reading "Might have to take Uncle Trump on his offer of being his Vice President 2024. Bruh told me 'no way you'd be worse than Kamala'" followed by several laughing emojis.

Akademiks' feelings regarding Trump are no surprise, as he's expressed his support towards the former president in the past and even declared that he would vote for him in 2024 if he would run again.

Trump is currently contending with 34 felony charges of fraud from the Manhattan District Attorney regarding hush money payments to adult-film star Stormy Daniels, making him the first former president in history to face criminal charges.

These charges do not appear to be deterring Trump, as he is has begun his campaign to win the Republican nomination for the 2024 Presidential Election.
