Will.i.am: Donald Trump Doesn't Care 'About Anything But Himself -- And That's Sad'

Hip-hop artist William Adams, who is better known as will.i.am, appeared momentarily overcome with emotion on Sunday when MSNBC host Joy-Ann Reid asked him about his "biggest fear" from a Donald Trump presidency.

"It's just sad," Adams said, struggling for words. "I can't explain how -- how said this is. I mean, if you just look at what's happening, it's just sad."

"I love this country," he continued. "I love all the potentials we have. Like, why are we even here? Why is this even the conversation? There are so many people that are hurting, so many people that are homeless, so many people still in the projects."

"So many people need things just like a simple education and a leader than can just hold ground and push it through."

The artist, however, lamented that he had little reason to believe Trump "cares about people in the projects."

"I don't think he cares about the homeless, I don't think he cares about Alton Sterling's mom and Philando Castile's mom," Adams insisted. "I don't think he cares about the people who are hurting in this nation or the police officers that lost their lives."

"I don't think he cares about anything but himself. And that's sad."
