Watch: 'Apparently I'm a racist’ - Pink hits back at trolls after tweeting there's still hope for Trump




US popstar Pink has been fending off Twitter trolls after tweeting "there's still hope" for Donald Trump.

Pink, who'll bring her Beautiful Trauma World Tour to New Zealand next September, initially tweeted that the US president is doing a terrible job. 

"Worse than every other job you've done terrible at. Do you seriously have time to worry about the NFL?," she asked, aiming her comments directly at the president.

But she soon changed her online comments to a more positive tune.

"I've seen people change and turn their lives around. There's still hope for you @POTUS. It's what the world needs," she wrote.

Pink has today told Australia's Nine Network she'd just been reading "how many people I pissed off last night on Twitter. It's been an interesting 12 hours". 

She explained to the TODAY show's entertainment editor Richard Wilkins that she had been "reading all of the fascinating things the president is doing, all the things he has time to do, like the NFL".

"And I just decided to go on a Twitter rant and I started saying that he's doing a terrible job… and a more terrible job than any other job he's been terrible at.

"But then I decided to try and be hopeful and at least a little optimistic and I said, 'There's still hope for you - I think you could turn it around' - and then that was the one that actually pissed everybody off the most.

"So that was the one where apparently now I voted for him… I'm a racist."
