Ice Cube took to social media to address reports he’s working with the Trump administration to help the Black community.
Cube was forced to respond Wednesday after the Internet went up in flames upon hearing he’d supposedly teamed up with the Trump administration to draft its Platinum Plan, to address issues in the Black community. The plan purportedly dovetails with Cube’s own Contract with Black America.
He tweets, “Facts: I put out the CWBA. 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.”
When someone accused him of going over to “the dark side,” Cube fired back that all politicians are pretty much on the dark side when it comes to helping African-Americans … which is his ultimate priority, regardless of who he needs to work with to achieve that.
All this hubbub started when senior Trump advisor Katrina Pierson tweeted what some considered fairly shocking news — namely, that Cube had “stepped up” to work with the Trump administration to develop DT’s “Platinum Plan.”
Trump’s plan — which he first discussed in Atlanta last month — includes proposals like increasing capital in Black communities by as much as $500 billion and providing better access to equitable education and job opportunities.
They are NOT all the same, Ice Cube.
