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.

50 Cent's black card was revoked and he was unanimously canceled by Black Twitter after he endorsed his friend Donald Trump in the upcoming presidential election.

The fallout continues after the rap mogul announced he was voting for Trump due to challenger Joe Biden's insane tax plan.

Fiddy was outraged that Biden plans to hike the tax rate in New York to 62%.

"WHAT THE F***! (VOTE For TRUMP) IM OUT," Fiddy wrote on Instagram on Monday. He added: "I don't care Trump doesn't like black people 62% are you out of ya f****ing mind."
 

The reaction on social media was swift. Outraged L.A.-based Civil rights activist Najee Ali, director of Project Islamic Hope, canceled his Starz subscription and urged everyone to cancel their Starz subscriptions as well.

50 Cent is executive producer of the drama series "Power" on Starz.

Ali blamed Trump for the weakening coronavirus pandemic and called the president a "racist".

"Trump is a racist president who has never condemned white supremacy but embraced it," Ali wrote on his website. "For "50 Cent" to openly embrace a racist like Trump sends a horrible message. I refuse to support "50 Cent" or any celebrity whose endorsement of Trump is more important than the health and welfare of Black people."

Black Twitter also sounded off on 50 Cent and other Black notables who support Trump.

One Black Twitter user wrote: "Men like Kanye West, Ice Cube, and 50 Cent aren't Black leaders, they are nothing more than opportunistic puppets who would sell their own people into slavery for a profit."


Another user tweeted: "Liberals just 'revoked 50 Cent's 'black card.'"


And Larry Elder tweeted: "When it comes to taxes, it looks like 50 Cent pretty quickly figured out that he doesn't want to pay 50 percent. #Trump2020."

But Trump's son, Eric Trump, was pleased with the rapper's endorsement. He tweeted a photo of 50 Cent and fellow rapper Ice Cube sitting side-by-side wearing Trump caps. Eric called them "Two great, courageous, Americans!"

Twitter tagged Eric's tweet, "manipulated media."
