Ice Cube Speaks About Working With Trump to Help Black Communities
Ice Cube is pushing back against critics who are hating him for working with Trump to develop a plan to invest in black communities.
The rapper spoke with Fox News and said he presented his ideas to both campaigns, and Trump’s was the one that sat down with him.
“I told everybody that I’m not playing politics with this,” he told Chris Wallace of his “Contract with Black America” plan.
He added, “I’m willing to meet with anybody who could bring this to life and make it a reality.”
Ice added that the Biden team pushed off a sit-down with him until after Election Day, but Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, met with him for three hours.
“They listened, heard what I had to say and pumped up their plan and presented it to the people,” he said.
“We [black Americans] make up 13 percent of the country and we’re only getting .5 percent of the wealth in the country,” he said. “Descendants of slaves, the ones who built this country, are being kinda forgotten in the fray.”
