Lil Wayne, Other Endorse Trump In Final Stretch

NFL Quarterback Brett Favre also endorses president

Add Lil Wayne to the growing list of prominent members of the rap community who are supporting President Trump in the 2020 election.

The rapper met with the president last Thursday and shared a picture of himself with Trump afterward. “Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus,” he wrote on Twitter. “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.”

Lil Wayne (real name Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) referenced Trump’s “Platinum Plan” to help the black community. The president’s plan incorporates ideas proposed by the rapper Ice Cube, including a $500 billion capital infusion.

Ice Cube worked with the White House on the plan after first developing his own 13-point plan to lift up the black community called the Contract with Black America.

Ice Cube has been getting attacked from the Left ever since it was revealed that he worked with the White House, but the rapper T.I. defended Ice Cube by pointing out that Democrats blew him off while Trump’s team was willing to engage.

“To add input to this initiative for the greater good of your people, and only one side responds? That’s not Cube’s fault,” T.I. said during a recent radio interview.

“You have to give Cube the benefit of his reputation. If we ain’t never known or seen or caught Cube on no bullshit – doing no tap dancing and bending over backwards for no white supremacist – why you think he just gonna start right now 35, 40 years in? Why? You’ve got to give him the credit of his credibility.”

Rapper 50 Cent recently endorsed Trump, but then apparently rescinded his endorsement after his ex-girlfriend, comedian Chelsea Handler, offered to pay his taxes and sleep with him again if he votes for Biden.

50 Cent also replied to Lil Wayne’s message on Twitter, writing, “oh no — WAYNE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE.”

“The Breakfast Club” host Charlamagne Tha God said on CNN that he understands why some black men are breaking for Trump.

“When it comes to black people you see who maybe are showing support for Trump, I think it’s because Trump is actually talking to young black male voters. He’s directing ads toward them. They are a group that never get courted,” he said. “Black people don’t get courted either as a whole. But that old Democratic regime speaks to old black men and they think everybody else in the black community and black families are going to fall in line.”

“Trump is targeting young black males in promos and marketing. It works,” Charlamagne Tha God said.

Charlamagne Tha God also said that, “I’m voting for Kamala Harris, I’ll tell you that in a heartbeat. I’m not necessarily voting for Joe Biden.”

In May, forever Vice President Joe Biden told Charlamagne Tha God, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

Brett Favre endorses Trump

Former NFL quarterback Brett Favre also endorsed Trump’s re-election bid.

Favre wrote on Twitter on Friday: “My Vote is for what makes this country great, freedom of speech & religion, 2nd Amnd, hard working tax paying citizens, police & military,” Favre’s tweet began. “In this election, we have freedom of choice, which all should respect. For me & these principles, my Vote is for @RealDonaldTrump. #Vote”

President Trump later sent a tweet thanking Favre for his support, calling it “a Great Honor.”

The three-time NFL MVP, who played for the Green Bay Packers from 1992 through 2007, announced his endorsement before Trump campaigned in Wisconsin last Friday.

The president won Wisconsin by a narrow margin of fewer than 23,000 votes in 2016, and it was the “tipping point” state that put him over the 270-vote threshold needed to win the Electoral College.

Trump also campaigned in Minnesota last Friday, as did Biden. Although Minnesota is considered a battleground state, it hasn’t been won by a Republican since Nixon won it in his 1972 re-election bid, 48 years ago. That Biden chose to spend time campaigning in Minnesota indicates the reliably blue state may be in play.

Favre’s endorsement comes two days after golf legend Jack Nicklaus endorsed Trump’s re-election bid.
