Ice Cube says Biden campaign is lying about conversation: ‘Release the Zoom Meeting’
Rapper Ice Cube laid down the gauntlet with the Biden team by calling out Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA) on whether he was asked to refrain from making demands before the election. And of course, Richmond denied the whole thing but unfortunately for him, there is a Zoom recording of it. The truth is in the political pudding here.
“Instead of going back and forth congressman, please release the Zoom meeting so the world can see what was said by all,” Ice Cube wrote on Twitter.

Richmond is one of the co-chairs for Joe Biden’s campaign for the presidency. Ice Cube became a hot topic this month when President Trump’s campaign made it public that they would adopt aspects of his Contract With Black America (CWBA) authored by the rapper.
“Facts: I put out the CWBA,” the rapper wrote on Twitter. “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 adviser, Jared Kushner, met with Ice Cube to discuss his plan and added some of his demands to President Trump’s Platinum Plan. However, Ice Cube received significant backlash for meeting with a Trump campaign member. Trump Derangement Syndrome is viral out there these days and downright insane.
Richmond was quick to attack Ice Cube in an interview on SiriusXM’s Joe Madison Show. “I like the fact that Ice Cube is getting engaged in policy,” Richmond stated. “I think that is a good thing. However, once you embark on getting into it, one, you have to be truthful, but two, you have an obligation, I think, to see it through and to be thorough with it. Our plan is very thorough. I won’t say he has a skeleton plan, but he has an outline of things, he has an outline of things that should be done. It’s not as comprehensive as our plan.”
“And so that’s what we told him,” Richmond said. “And the offer to stay engaged was not, ‘We’ll talk to you after the election.’ It went like this: ‘Here’s my cell number. Anything else you want to talk about on this plan or anything you think, you know, we need to talk about further, just pick up the phone and call.”
“He’s not endorsing Donald Trump, however, you know, he does give credibility to Donald Trump’s ridiculous plan,” Richmond said. “I mean, the first prong of Donald Trump’s plan is I’m going to make Juneteenth a federal holiday…What does that do to change the lives of Black people that are being discriminated against?”
And exactly what has Biden or Harris done to change the lives of Black people? Nothing except in the past they passed laws that caused young Black men to be rounded up and sent to prison en masse. Biden referred to them as ‘thugs’. C’mon man… tell the truth.
The Biden team is claiming that the Democrats have done more for the black community than anyone else. Not true. President Trump has helped them reach record low unemployment numbers and has supported them at every opportunity.
Just as Ice Cube said, there is an easy way to settle this… release the Zoom meeting. It’s just that simple but odds are that Richmond and the Democrats won’t do that because the video shows that the rapper is telling the truth here. Why would he lie about something like this on video?
