NEW YORK (AP) – Pitbull is the latest star to take a bite out of Donald Trump.

The rapper called Trump out at Premios Juventad, the Spanish-language awards show that aired Thursday on Univision. The channel dropped Trump’s Miss USA Pageant after his comments about some Mexican immigrants being rapists, criminals and drug dealers.

Pitbull said, “I want to tell Marco Rubio, step it up! Jeb Bush, step it up! Hillary Clinton, step it up! Because Donald Trump can’t be president.”

He added: “For all of the Latinos out there, keep your heads up, and Trump, watch out for El Chapo dude.”

The rapper spoke in Spanish and also said, “I want him to know I’m not a politician. I’m a musician. I’m a Latino first. I support our people.”
