(AllHipHop News) Cardi B opened up to Democratic nominee Joe Biden on what is most important to her this election cycle.
The rapper spoke with the politician via video conference platform Zoom, as part of her Elle magazine cover story, during which he asked the “Bodak Yellow” star what she expects from the next U.S. leader.
“I have a whole list of things that I want our next president to do for us,” Cardi said.
I just want Trump out. His mouth gets us in trouble so much.
I don’t want to be lied to — we’re dealing with a pandemic right now, and I just want answers.
I want to know when this will be over.
I want to go back to my job. But I don’t want someone to lie to me and tell me that it’s fine not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be okay.
I want a president to tell me what the steps are for us to get better, to tell me, This is why it is taking so long, this is why other countries are doing better than ours. Tell me the truth, the hard-core truth.
I want free Medicare. It’s important to have free (healthcare), because look at what is happening right now. Of course, I think we need free college.
I want Black people to stop getting killed and no justice for it. I’m sick of it. I just want laws that are fair to Black citizens and fair to cops, too…
After listening to the “WAP” star’s list of demands, Biden responded: “Also, by the way, if I get elected president, anybody with a family (that makes) less than $125 grand, you’re going to get free education. And everybody gets free community college.
“The way we can pay for all of this is doing practical things, like making sure that everybody has to pay their fair share,” he explained, adding, “(For example) no corporation should pay less than 15 percent tax.”
Cardi is lending her support to Biden, after her initial pick for president, Bernie Sanders, dropped out of the race in April.
