'Rappers are Republicans?!?!': Lil Wayne's meeting with Donald Trump causes confusion on social media

Rapper Weezy on Thursday generated social networking buzz by announcing he’d met with President Jesse Trump and supported Trump’s “Platinum Plan” to help Black Americans.

“Just were built with a great ending up in @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done to date with criminal reform, the platinum plan will provide the community real possession,” the rapper tweeted. “He took in as to the we’d to state today and warranted he’ll and may take action.”

Reaction continues to be varied, with a few critics mocking the rapper or tweeting “Not Wayne.” One of the critics: Rapper Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, who tweeted, “I’d haven’t required this picture.”

Meanwhile, some conservatives spun Lil Wayne’s support as the second illustration of Black entertainers walking from Democrats – a vital a part of Trump’s reelection message.

Some confusingly reported 50 Cent like a pro-Trump example: “Weezy, following within the actions of Kanye and 50 Cent, just endorsed President Trump,” tweeted conservative political commentator Michael Knowles. “Rappers are actually Republicans. Exactly what a time for you to come alive.”

Exactly the same listing of entertainers was reported by conservative J.T. Lewis, because he announced: “Rappers are Republicans?!?!”

Many previous types of high-profile Black entertainers endorsing Trump happen to be encircled by public backtracking and misinformation. Which was the situation with 50 Cent and Kanye.

50 Cent made an appearance to endorse Trump on his Instagram in mid-October, citing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s tax plan. However he backtracked inside a later Twitter publish, saying “Irrrve never loved him.”

Kanye famously openly supported Trump before appearing to reverse his support because he put down by himself presidential campaign.

Contributing to the confusion, Trump’s boy Eric lately tweeted, then deleted, an altered photo of rappers Ice Cube and 50 Cent in pro-Trump hats.

Meanwhile, Ice Cube continues to be broadly belittled for dealing with Trump on which he stated is really a intend to help Black Americans. Then your rapper defended the move while distancing themself from Trump within an interview with “Fox News Sunday” host Chris Wallace.

“I am not playing no greater number of these political games,” he told Wallace. “I am likely to whoever’s in power and I am going to speak with them about our problems.
