On Thursday the 29th October 2020, Young Money Rapper Lil Wayne tweeted about his meeting with President Donald J. Trump. As per his Tweet, he ‘had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal 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’.
The creator of ‘A Milli’ is not the first prominent Rapper to support Trump. Just now, Lil Pump came out with his support for Trump, undermining the alleged dislike of the President for Black people, as well as Takeshi 6ix9nine, who is probably the most influential Latino personality in the USA.
Backlash was expected thanks to a yearlong misinformation campaign by the mainstream about Donald Trump and fans were disappointed, though it is questionable whether Lil Wayne will do a U-turn like 50 Cent. The New York based Rapper who filed for bankruptcy in 2015 first came out to endorse Donald Trump because of Joe Biden’s tax plans, retracted however after his white ex-lover told him ‘he can’t vote for Donald Trump. He is black’.
Racist Chelsea Handler who was talking to Jimmy Kimmel said that ‘she needed to remind 50 Cent that he is black and black people could not vote for Trump’ and ‘that she would pay for his shortcomings’. The uneducated Rapper didn’t wait long to un-endorse Trump and continue following what the white progressive says.
It is exciting to see whether Lil Wayne will backtrack but it is certain that he is not alone and a lot of groups that the President is supposedly against, are coming out for his support. Democratic State Representative Vernon Jones not only endorsed Trump, he also spoke at the Republican National Convention, a true uppercut for the Biden/Harris ticket. Heavyweight Box Champion Mike Tyson as well as actor Isiah Washington came out with their support for President Trump.
However, Black Americans aren’t the only unlikely supporters of the President. Gay, former Democratic voter and activist Brandon Straka is not only viral in his support, he started the #WalkAway movement and YouTube is now flooded with videos of former Democrats explaining why they left the Democratic Plantation.
