CNN: Ice Cube talks about his work with the Trump administration

Recommended Posts

After taking heat for a few days, rapper Ice Cube spoke to CNN on Friday to set the record straight on why he was working with President Donald Trump.

Cube spoke mostly with Chris Cuomo about his "Contract With Black America," a plan he released earlier this year to address racial inequality. Cube said he has never met Trump and is not trusting either his campaign or Joe Biden's campaign -- he's going by action.

"I didn't run to go work with any campaign. Both campaigns contacted me," Cube said. "Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Contract with Black America. One campaign said, 'We love what you have, but let's really dig into after the election.' And one campaign said 'We love what you have, do you mind talking to us about it?' And that's what I did, so I didn't run to nobody."

To clarify, the Biden campaign was the one that told Cube they wanted to wait until after the election, just like they have refused to answer most tough questions so far.

The entertainer tweeted Wednesday that the Trump campaign made adjustments to "their plan" for Black America after talking to him.

Trump's plan -- dubbed the "Platinum Plan" -- includes initiatives such as "neighborhoods with highest policing standards" and replacing "failing schools" with "full school choice."

Cube is willing to work with both teams, he said, and with whomever will work with him.

During Friday's interview, Cube spoke about closing the wealth gap and how those who don't have money are disrespected in this country.

"This is the problem in America, Black people don't own on capital," he said. "We cannot survive in America another 100 years living like this."

On Tuesday, Katrina Pierson, a senior adviser for the President, tweeted that Cube helped develop Trump's "Platinum Plan."  "Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate," she wrote on Twitter. "Thank you for leading!"

Ice Cube unveiled his 13-part plan in July, which included points such as police and prison reform and interest free loans for home ownership. Though he denounced Trump in 2016, he has said in recent months that he wants change regardless of the political party.

"If anyone has a problem with that, it seems like a personal problem," Cube told Cuomo.

My prediction:  A lot of Seniors will surely move away from voting for Trump in November, but be replaced by enough minorities who will grudgingly vote for Trump to the point of getting him re-elected.

My prediction is that a couple of Black celebrities supporting Trump will might not make a damn bit of difference. And the Trump will get voted out of office in a landslide, well the Democrats gain control of the Senate.

Trump sucked up to Ice Cube just like he sucked up to Kanye. And Ice Cube is not supporting Trump, he just is not trashing him because Trump adopted some of Ice Cube's talking points.

My prediction: Your prediction is wishful thinking.
