Ice Cube explains decision to negotiate with Trump administration, says Dems wouldn’t address requests until after election

For decades, Democrats have positioned themselves as the only party fighting for African Americans, and have enjoyed overwhelming support from that demographic despite putting very little effort into proving the claim.

However, some leaders in the Black community have noticed that Democrats are not putting their money where their mouth is, but Donald Trump is — like rapper Ice Cube, who shocked Democrats by openly working with the Trump administration to enact his “Contract with Black America.”

Ice Cube has made it clear that he’s not necessarily endorsing Donald Trump for president but was forced to come out in defense of his decision to cross the aisle and work with the sitting president after Hollywood and the mainstream media exploded in rage after the news broke.

Ice Cube tweeted on October 14 that he reached out to both Democrat and GOP leaders in search of cooperation in enacting the “contract,” which seeks to close the opportunity gap in the US.

Facts: I put out the [Contract with Black America]. Both parties contacted me. Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.

Trump Derangement Syndrome runs so deep on the left that Black Americans are not allowed to work with the powers that be to advocate for their community — and Ice Cube found that out within hours.

The rapper has been forced to defend his meetings with the Trump administration on multiple occasions, most recently appearing on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Wednesday to clarify his intentions.

“I put out a plan, both campaigns wanted to talk to me about it, and I was eager to talk to both campaigns. I’m done playing this politic game, joining sides,” he told host Trevor Noah. “To me, that doesn’t get the job done. You know, what gets the job done is to try to make a deal with whoever is in power and hopefully they see what we’re going through.”

Ice Cube continued:

I want to keep our issues top-of-mind and at the forefront of everything. So, you know, it’s politics; the Trump campaign put out those headlines, but you’ve got both sides putting out headlines. You’ve got celebrities on both sides with headlines. You know, campaigns try to use political footballs in any way they can. At the end of the day, American people are smarter than that. American people are going to look at all of the facts and go and vote for the person they believe can win and do a better job.

The rapper pointed out that working towards bipartisan solutions to real problems facing Black Americans does not constitute a political endorsement, firing back at critics that “no matter what side of the fence you’re on, it’s time for both sides to come together and solve this problem.”

  1. So basically the democrats are still promising without any intention of delivering. They have been doing that for decades, and now you just noticed? Well better late than never.

  2. Under trumps plan to help the minoritys is enough .its up to to them to stand up and take control of their lives and opportunity.its always been there.its not a hand out to the black race .Americans dont owe any race anything but equal opportunity..what u do with it is on u..

    1. Totally agree 100%. Growing up poor n working on a farm to have food to eat. Harvesting, canning n freezing to have enough through winter. Milking cows feeding pigs to have meat on the table. Raising tobacco n wheat trading for sugar n beef cow’s. Bought our clothes to wear to school from working hard. Nothing ever handed to me n always worked hard for what I had.
