Usher selling anti-Trump merchandise for charity

R&B star Usher is hoping to raise money for charity by selling anti-Donald Trump merchandise.

The Yeah! singer gave an electric performance at the 2016 BET Awards on Sunday night (26Jun16), but it was his top that hit headlines, since the phrase "Don't Trump America" was emblazoned on the back of his forest green shirt - clearly a shot at the controversial presidential candidate.

Now fans can also don the attention-grabbing clothing by purchasing the same shirt online via custom apparel platform Teespring.

The limited edition shirt, as well as a hoodie and tank top with the slogan, will be available for one week only, with sales ending on Tuesday (05Jul16).

All proceeds will go towards Usher's New Look charity and organization Pencils of Promise. Both groups help increase access to quality education in underprivileged minority communities across the U.S. and Latin America.
