The rapper recently collaborated with Lil Wayne on his mixtape track 'Mercy', which saw her rap: "I'm a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy bitches is f**king up the economy."
When asked about the rap on Orlando's Power 953 earlier today (September 10), President Barack Obama joked that it was probably one of Minaj's famous alter egos making the claims.
"I'm not sure that is actually what happened," he said about the supposed endorsement. "I think she had a song on there, a little rap... but she likes to play different characters. So I don't know what's going on there."
Minaj has since clarified her comments, insisting that she supports the Democratic Party.
She tweeted: "Thank you for understanding my creative humour & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do... *sends love & support* @BarackObama."
She added: "Awesome! Now I can tell my grandchildren that the 1st black President of the United States took the time to address a Nicki Minaj question."
Minaj had apparently received death threats on Twitter following her surprise comments about Romney.
