Unlike his predecessors, President Donald Trump has worked tirelessly to affect meaningful change in America’s minority communities, especially the African American community where issues like prison reform and black business ownership are important political topics.
According to the Daily Wire, it appears that Trump is making inroads with African Americans across the country, as yet another A-list rapper known as “Lil Wayne” recently came out in support of Trump citing the president’s recent launch of the “Platinum Plan.”
The president’s plan aims to “increase access to capital in black communities by almost $500 billion,” which would undoubtedly give the African American entrepreneurial community a much-needed boon.
The rapper, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., sent shockwaves across social media earlier this week by publicly proclaiming his support for the president while including a recent selfie he took with America’s 45th president.
“Just 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,” tweeted.

Carter’s high praise for Trump’s Platinum Plan comes in the wake of several other rappers applauding the plan, with legendary rapper Ice Cube also working with the president to promote the plan, according to Fox News.
Because the California rapper chose to work with the president on the plan — which is expected to create a staggering three million jobs in the black community, the issue unfortunately turned political, thanks mostly in part to the liberal mainstream media.
Ice Cube and other hip hop stars took a beating on social media from their fans for working with the Trump administration, even though they insisted that just because they’re working with an administration that actually wants to help the black community, it doesn’t mean it’s a political endorsement.
In contrast, there were plenty of those who supported Carter, Ice Cube and others for working alongside the Trump administration to better the African American community.
Only time will tell, but it’s not a stretch to assume that Trump’s close work with the black community will has the potential to pay huge dividends at the voting booth, come November 3.
