Rapper Lupe Fiasco has made clear his disdain for modern politics. And in an interview Tuesday, has made known his disdain for President Barack Obama's foreign policy.

And in an interview with CBS News, appearing on their What's Trending program, the rapper called Obama the biggest terrorist in the country.

In my fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama in the United States of America. For me, I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism, Fiasco said. The root cause of the terrorism is the stuff that you as a government allow to happen and the foreign policies that we have in place in different countries that inspire people to become terrorists. And it's easy for us because it's really just some oil, which we can really get on our own.

But these aren't the only shots Fiasco, whose real name is Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, has taken against politicians.

Known for his socially aware and politically charged lyrics, Fiasco had these thoughts to offer in his latest single, Words I Never Said, from his latest album, Lasers.

Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist, Gaza Strip was getting burned, Obama didn't say .../ That's why I ain't vote for him, next one either.

When asked by the show's host, Shira Lazar, if, as the lyrics suggested, he doesn't vote, Fiasco said yes.

I don't get involved in the political process because it's meaningless, to be honest. First of all, I'm a real big believer if I'm gonna vouch for someone, then I'm gonna stand behind everything that they do. That's just how I am as a human being. So politicians aren't gonna do that because I don't want you to bomb some village in the middle of nowhere.
