Legendary rap artist Ice Cube has taken a beating on social media after announcing he was working with President Donald Trump to put together the “Platinum Plan,” designed to help improve the quality of life for the black community.

Rather than back down from the criticism like many would have done, Ice Cube has doubled down and refuses to be bullied into hating on the president just because that’s what the masses expect of him. In fact, he continues to praise the administration for working with him.

Ice Cube sat down with Maria Bartiromo of Fox News over the weekend to share his thoughts on the criticism he’s received.

“I like that it’s aimed towards black Americans, you know, that’s the key. I just think whatever we do got to be aimed towards black Americans,” he said.

Ice Cube emphasized that black people have been unfairly lumped in with other groups through buzzwords like “minority” or “people of color.” Going forward, Ice Cube said he feels that black Americans should be at the front of the line in terms of getting help from any programs.

Though Ice Cube reiterated that he does not wish to be used as anyone’s political pawn or be lumped in with big-name figures like Candace Owens, he did respond to those criticizing his working with the Trump administration.

“At the end of the day, they’re mad ‘cause I’m just willing to work with anybody that’s willing to work with me to see some of these things that’s in the Contract with Black America come to pass,” the rapper stated. “I’ve been getting pushback ever since I came out with the Contract with Black America, you know, from everybody who really don’t want us to … have real demands, but people who just want us to basically shut up and vote, and I’m not gonna do that.”

“I’m a citizen of this country just like everybody else, and I can say what I want to say,” he went on to say. “I’m not aligned with anybody’s personal views. I only care about what they do in public as far as helping the public and, you know, empty rhetoric, empty talk, everybody’s popping off, at the end of the day, we need to get what we need in this country to survive. If we don’t get that, this country won’t survive. And that’s what I’m saying.”

Ice Cube isn’t the only famous rap artist to toss some support Trump’s way during this extremely contentious election cycle. Lil Wayne has also praised the president and the Platinum Plan he’s been working on for the black community.

“Just had a great meeting with [President Donald Trump],” Lil Wayne posted on Twitter. “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.”

So the masses expect that because both Lil Wayne and Ice Cube are black they are just supposed to vote for the Democratic Party candidate and only work with folks on the left?

Now who are the racist ones?

Donald Trump Is Already ‘Planning for the Next Administration’ — VIDEO

2024 will be here before you know it…

If Donald Trump again runs for president in 2024 AND if he becomes the Republican Party nominee, you’d have to imagine there’s little chance he would “lose” an election twice in a row. If Trump becomes president on January 20, 2025, who comes with him as a member of his cabinet? Pompeo, most likely. Carson would be probable. But you’d have to think Haley, Pence, and a few other big names from the first term wouldn’t even get a phone call. Appearing on Hannity on Friday night, Mark Meadows, former Congressman and chief of staff, dropped a bomb. Meadows said, “What we will see on Sunday is we will see the start of planning for the next administration. And I can tell you, the people that are at the top of that list, all of them have Trump as their last name.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FaSCFIcgR7M&feature=emb_title And here’s your daily dose of random noise from Twitter… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1365477701767823361 https://twitter.com/trscoop/status/1365479675506659332 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1365486571978301442 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1365496943225556994

Trump to Start New Political Action Committee — Corey Lewandowski to Head It Up

He’s still top dog!

The world has long been waiting to see what’s next for Donald Trump. The former President has been largely laying low down at Mar-a-Lago these past few weeks, with only a few quick statements having been disseminated by those around him. His Twitter account remains suspended, which could be one reason for the lack of controversy he’s spawned these days. Now, with a major CPAC speech leering imminently over the horizon, The Don is making some moves. From Fox News: Former President Trump is starting up a new political action committee and is eyeing longtime top political adviser and aide Corey Lewandowski to head up the new super PAC, multiple people with knowledge of the conversations confirmed to Fox News. The move was decided during a meeting late last week at Trump’s south Florida residence at Mar-a-Lago when the former president gathered with his political team. The group included 2020 campaign managers Bill Stepien and Brad Parscale, senior adviser Jason Miller, former White House social media director Dan Scavino, and Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. CONTINUED: Sources familiar with the meeting shared that a number of Trump’s post-presidency political activities were discussed and added that plans to start up the PAC were not finalized. “MAGA supporters and candidates supporting President Trump’s America First agenda are going to be impressed with the political operation being built out here,” Miller said. “We expect formal announcements of the full team in the coming weeks, which will include some very talented operatives not yet named.” The move will likely solidify Trump’s influence over the Republican Party – something that moderates and Democrats alike still fear.
