Reactions To Ice Cube Working With Trump Announcement



Donald Trump may have found himself an unpredictable ally in the rap community.

On Wednesday (Oct. 14), Katrina Pierson, a senior advisor for the Trump Administration, announced that Ice Cube has been working with the President of the United States to develop his Platinum Plan for his presidential campaign. The Platinum Plan is an initiative to bring $500 billion into Black communities to promote affordable health care, Black businesses, education and more. In the tweet shared to Pierson’s Twitter account, Katrina confirmed the news.

“Shoutout to @icecube for his willingness to step up and work with
@realDonaldTrump Administration to help develop the #PlatinumPlan ICYMI:… Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate. Thank you for leading! ✊🏾,” the tweet reads.

In an Instagram video shared by the 51-year-old rapper prior to the news announcement on Oct. 11, Ice Cube explained why he decided to dive into politics. During the five-minute clip, Cude chooses not to align himself with the Democrat or Republican party but affirmed he has made contacts to talk about real issues.

“I’ve been making contacts trying to talk about these real issues. Straight up, I believe the Democrats have… they’ve been nice,” Cube started. “They’ve been cordial, so to speak. I don’t really see them pushing their policies in any different direction. They’re still talking this minority, minority, people of color shit that don’t necessarily include us. That don’t necessarily include Black Americans, especially descendants of slaves.”

Ice Cube, however, confirm he has met with Republicans to discuss policies and the $500 billion they plan to allocate to Black communities.

“We also met with the Republicans and shit. They brought us in. We talked to ’em,” Ice Cube went on. “They’ve moved their agenda a lot because of what we said. You know, they put $500 billion on the table. Who knows what’s gone really happen. I just know one of ’em gon ‘win. I don’t know if it can really matter to us. We gotta just push whoever’s in there ’cause ain’t nobody really solved our problems. People say we can’t take another four years of this. Black people, we can take anything, shit.”

Ice Cube has taken to social media to explain his reasoning with the announcement by Trump’s administration.

Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me. Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.
