Today marks the start of the Democratic National Convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and politics are are at the top many people’s social media feeds. To help connect Joe Biden with some of his supporters, Cardi B interviewed the presumptive Democratic nominee, courtesy of Elle magazine.
Discussing key issues including the Corona Virus, paying for ones college education and President Trump’s “dangerous” prejudicial policy, the “WAP” collaborator said it all comes down to one thing: truth. “I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us. But first, I just want Trump out,” said Cardi, who was a vocal supporter of Biden’s former rival for the party’s nomination, Sen. Bernie Sanders. “His mouth gets us in trouble so much. I don’t want to be lied to — we’re dealing with a pandemic right now, and I just want answers. I want to know when this will be over. I want to go back to my job.” The Atlantic Records artist wants Medicare for all, free college education and, most importantly, she asked for “Black people to stop getting killed and no justice for it. I’m sick of it. I just want laws that are fair to Black citizens and fair to cops, too.”
Biden, who’s had a troubled Civil Rights past (highlighted during a 2019 debate by then rival and now current pick for Vice President, Kamala Harris) agreed with the superstar rapper, noting that the upcoming election is a chance to change the tone of the country and with it, the world.
