NEW YORK — Seems like John Legend isn’t the only one who’s publicly calling Donald Trump a racist.

Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the Twitter feud Saturday and said there was no question that the controversial presidential candidate was a racist.

“I didn’t realize this was in question. Behaves like a racist, speaks like a racist…of course Donald Trump is a racist,” de Blasio said on Twitter.

The mayor didn’t stop there.

“The solution isn’t complicated, either. Tax the super rich, reform Wall Street, create good jobs with good wages.”

“The answer to proto-fascism is better democracy. The answer to economic fear and insecurity is actual re-distribution of wealth.”

Clearly, de Blasio is backing Grammy-winning singer John Legend, who also attacked Trump on the social media site.

On Friday, Trump supporters and demonstrators clashed at Friday night’s campaign rally in Chicago. Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. tweeted later that five students “couldn’t even answer” the question about why they were protesting the Trump rally.

Legend decided to chime in with a blunt response to the real estate mogul’s son.

“I think they were protesting your racist father. This isn’t complicated,” Legend wrote on Twitter.

Trump Jr. responded to Legend’s comment later and said: “Here we go again. That can’t be the answer for everything you don’t like. That’s why the country is so divided.”

“No. It’s just the answer when racist racists are saying racist s—t and are endorsed by the KKK,” Legend fired back. The singer was referring to the Ku Klux Klan member that showed up at Trump’s rally.

Donald Trump never really had the Democratic mayor’s support in the first place. De Blasio has been endorsing Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton since last October.

“The candidate who I believe can fundamentally address income inequality effectively, the candidate who has the right vision, the right experience and the ability to get the job done, is Hillary Clinton,” de Blasio said when he announced his endorsement.
