Ice Cube Responds to Backlash For Working With Donald Trump Administration

Ice Cube is responding to the backlash he has been receiving after it was reported this week that he has been working with the Donald Trump administration to help with its Platinum Plan, the administration’s Black outreach program.

The rapper began a Twitter thread on Wednesday evening that ran into Thursday where he explained why he is working with the Trump administration and clarifying other things about his political stances.

Ice Cube wanted to be clear that he will work with anyone who wants to reach out to the Black community, while also stating he has not endorsed Trump or Joe Biden for president.

“Every side is the Darkside for us here in America. They’re all the same until something changes for us. They all lie and they all cheat but we can’t afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change,” he wrote on Twitter. “Our justice is bipartisan.

“Black progress is a bipartisan issue. When we created the Contract With Black America we excepted to talk to both sides of the isle. Talking truth to power is part of the process. I will advise anybody on the planet who has the power to help Black Americans close the enormous wealth gap.”

And finally, “I haven’t endorsed anybody.”
