Rapper Lil Wayne announced his support for President Donald Trump on Thursday.
“Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” the rapper continued. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”

The move comes only days before the 2020 presidential election on November 3.
Several other prominent American rappers have previously endorsed Trump for president, including Kanye West, 50 Cent, and Lil Pump, though 50 Cent apparently backtracked his endorsement on Oct. 24 and West announced his own presidential bid on July 4.
We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States ??! #2020VISION
