Don’t mess with her Minajesty. Nicki Minaj took aim at President-elect Donald Trump and his immigration policy in her new track, “Black Barbies,” a remix of Rae Sremmurd’s 2016 hit “Black Beatles.”

In the song, the “Anaconda” rapper, 33 — who was born in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago, but raised in Queens, New York — spits out two lines referencing the ex-Celebrity Apprentice host’s vow to deport several million illegal, undocumented immigrants when his presidency begins.

"Island girl, Donald Trump want me go home." Minaj raps. Later on, she says that she’s “prayin’ all my foreigns don’t get deported.”

The chart-topper’s lyrics seem to be a direct response to the remarks Trump, 70, made during his first post-election interview on 60 Minutes on Sunday, November 13.

"What we are going to do is get the people that are criminal and have criminal records, gang members, drug dealers, where a lot of these people — probably 2 million, it could even be 3 million — we are getting them out of our country or we are going to incarcerate," Trump, 70, explained to CBS News' Lesley Stahl. "But we're getting them out of our country. They're here illegally.” (Those comments confirmed what Trump promised throughout his controversial campaign.)

This isn’t the first time Minaj has spoken out against Trump and his family. During an October 15 performance at the Tidal X: 1015 concert in Brooklyn, the hip-hop star stunned the crowd with an expletive-filled freestyle unfavorably comparing soon-to-be First Lady Melania Trump to Hillary Clinton and Michelle Obama.

“‘Cause you n—as are so f–king weak, y’all got the audacity to be intimidated by the bad motherf–king queen and get your motherf–king feelings hurt,” she shouted into the microphone. “But it’s O-motherf–king-K, ‘cause Barack needed a Michelle, bitch, and Bill needed a motherf–king Hillary, bitch. You better pray to God you don’t get stuck with a motherf–king Melania. You n—as want brainless bitches? To stroke your motherf–king egos? Well, f–k you, n—as.”

When social media users called out the female emcee for attacking Donald’s third wife, Minaj took to Twitter to clarify.

“Wasn’t ‘dragging,’” the “Starships” singer wrote. “She seems nice. But a smart man knows he needs a certain ‘kind’ of woman when running for President/attempting greatness.”
