Another bold name rapper has come out in support of President Donald Trump for re-election. Lil Wayne shocked his fans by announcing he is voting for Trump in a tweet on Thursday, Oct. 29.
Weezy, whose Twitter handle is @LilTunechi, wrote: "Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he's done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done."
Trump's platinum plan promises $500 billion in economic, education, and financial investments in Black communities over the next 5 years.
Wayne's endorsement gives Trump a big boost five days before Americans go to the polls to choose their nation's leader on Nov. 3.
The rapper shared a photo of himself meeting the President, giving him the thumbs up for his attempts to reform criminal justice in America.
Another influential rapper, Ice Cube has also worked on the platinum plan with members of Trump's team, but he made it clear he is not endorsing Trump for another four years in office.
Trump also has the support of fellow rappers Lil Pump and 50 Cent (despite what his ex Chelsea Handler has said).
Black Twitter users and former fans went ballistic, some calling Wayne "coon" in angry tweets.
This was the very last thing I expected to see today

Supporting a white supremacist is free thinking?

Funny he was never accused of being a white supremacist before. And pretty sure he was active in supporting the black community before he was president. So who is lying?

Yeah he's such a white supremacist that he let Jennifer Hudson stay in his hotel for free after her mother was murdered. Wanna look at a list of the Democrats and Biden's racism for the past 50-250 years?
