On Tuesday, Piers Morgan welcomed musician and politician Wyclef Jean to the program. The once presidential candidate for Haiti and author of the new book, "Purpose, An Immigrant's Story," shared with Morgan the source of inspiration for his love of politics:
"Politics really came from my uncle, Ray Joseph, who was the Haiti ambassador to America," said Jean. "So politics has always been an undertone in the household."
Jean, a staunch Democrat and Obama supporter also clarified the rumor that he was slated to perform at the Republican National Convention this past August. "I did not agree to perform at the RNC," said a definitive Jean.
"What came across the e-mail of my management, was something that said a performance for veterans and disabled," Jean explained. "Once the e-mail went down, and it was like, RNC, I was like, you all know I can't do that."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Jean shares why he has always been a Democrat.
