Lil Wayne’s Fans Are Too Upset After The Rapper Supports Donald Trump Ahead Of US Election As He Poses With President

Lil Wayne on Thursday praised Donald Trump and his work on cr!minal justice reform, saying the president’s Platinum Plan to benefit bla-ck Americans is going to give the community real ownership’.

The rapper tweeted about the pair’s ‘great meeting’ at the commander in chief’s resort in Doral, Florida, sharing an image of the two men.

Lil Wayne tweeted: ‘Just had a great meeting with AT realdonaldtrump at POTUS besides what he’s done so far with cr!minal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership.

‘He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.’ Trump later retweeted the post.The meeting with Lil Wayne comes after other prominent bla-ck artists 50 Cent and Ice Cube appeared to lend their support to the president.

Rapper Lil Pump also endorsed Trump on his Instagram page on Monday. Yet, despite urging fans to ‘VOTE For TRUMP’ earlier this month, 50 Cent cr!ticized Lil Wayne, tweeting the photo of the younger rapper with the president saying, ‘Oh no WAYNE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE.’

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany says White House officials have been speaking to Lil Wayne’s team for some time, and it culm!nated with Thursday’s meeting when the president campaigned in Florida. She said: ‘I think you’re seeing a lot of supporters come off the sidelines and want to the joint president in a second term.’

While Joe Biden is expected to win the vast majority of bla-ck voters in next week’s election, Trump has courted them and hopes to shave into Democrats’ historic advantage in the community. The image spa-rked a backla-sh from some online. Comedian Sarah Cooper tweeted: ”He assured me we will get it done’ My god how du-mb are you.’

Ice Cube on Sunday defe-nded his co-working effort with Trump on his Bla-ck Economic Empowerment ‘Platinum Plan’ saying, ‘I’m not playing politics with this’.The hip hop icon said the Biden campaign wanted to work with him after the election and the Trump campaign showed more immediate interest.

The artist said he sat down with Trump advisor Jared Kushner for three hours about the proposal. Rapper 50 Cent has indicated his support for Trump in social media posts. He spa-rked a social media circus when he shared an image of the super tax the Democrat candidate was proposing – 62 percent for those earning more than $400,000 in New York City, 50 Cent’s home.

‘WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT.’ 50 Cent wrote. ‘I don’t care Trump doesn’t like bla-ck people 62 percent are you out of ya f***ing mind.’Radio personality Charlamagne Tha God then credited Trump with attempting to reach young bl-ack male voters, a group he said ‘never gets courted’ during election campaigns.

In September at a ‘Bla-ck Voices for Trump’ event in Atlanta, Georgia, Trump announced what his campaign dubbed a ‘Platinum Plan’ laying out his ‘promise to Bla-ck America’ if he wins a second term, including a pu-sh for economic development and loan money and a pledge to designate Juneteenth as a federal holiday. Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of sl*very in the United States, is so named because June 19, 1865, is when sla*es were freed in Galveston, Texas.
