Rapper 50 Cent endorses Trump via Instagram after seeing Biden tax plan
Earlier this week CNN host Don Lemon urged Black voters to get educated before endorsing or otherwise doing anything favorable to help reelect President Donald Trump.
He probably didn’t expect rapper 50 Cent to take the advice so seriously.
In a post on Instagram, the rapper said he’s backing Trump because Joe Biden’s tax plan would raise tax rates to 62 percent for NY corporations and New Yorkers making more than $400,000.

“WHAT THE F—!” he said. “(VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT, F— NEW YORK,” adding “The KNICKS never win anyway,” the music star wrote.
“I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people,” 50 Cent added, “62% are you out of ya f—ing mind.”
The endorsement is another notable defection from the Democrats by a prominent Black entertainer, coming just days after Ice Cube made headlines for cooperating with President Trump over the Platinum Plan for Black America which Trump released at the beginning of the month.
“The proposals include prosecuting the Ku Klux Klan and Antifa as terrorist organizations, making Juneteenth a federal holiday and efforts to bolster Black economic prosperity,” says CNN.
“They only care about power for themselves, whatever that means. My opponent is offering Black Americans nothing but the same old, tired, empty slogans,” Trump said about Democrats’ plans to keep Black people on the plantation.
Predictably, liberal social media reacted harshly to the development, just as they did to Ice Cube’s cooperation with Trump.
“Damn,! Trumps [sic] added another Negro Lawn Jockey to the White House Lawn, 50 Cent, White Supremacists are having an good [sic] month, they’re like damn trump sure knows how to put them N**** where they belong, on his front lawn,” said one Twitter user.

Earlier this week, CNN host Don Lemon criticized Ice Cube, implying the rapper was cooperating with Trump in helping Black America out of ignorance.
“But one needs to know what one is talking about,” Lemon said about the dangers of Black men getting involved in politics. “One needs to educate oneself on just what is, other than the basics about capital, which is important, about voting, which is important, and so on and so forth. So you have to be careful who you align yourself with. So you have to educate yourself about that.”
And about taxes.
