Pin It
President ObamaWhose side is he on?! The second Presidential Debate isn't the only thing on President Barack Obama's mind this week...

While he plans on arguing foreign and domestic policies tonight, Obama recently gave his opinion on the recent fight between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj on the American Idol set!

"I think they are going to be able to sort it out. I am confident...I am all about bringing people together, working for the same cause. I think both outstanding artists are going to be able to make sure that they're moving forward and not going backwards," he said when he called into a Miami radio show last Friday.

Obama doesn't have a favorite out of the two artists either! He said that Mariah has helped him in the past and that Nicki in definitely on his music playlist.

"Mariah, she's actually done some events for us. I've gotten to know her and Nick [Cannon]. She's a wonderful lady. Nicki I don't know, but I've got her on my iPod."

The American Idol fight seems like nothing compared to the bigger debate that's going on tonight when President Obama goes up against Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

Are you going to tune in to tonight's Presidential Debate? Are you on Team Mariah or Team Nicki? Team Obama or Team Romney? Let us know!
