Ice Cube defends partnership with Trump to invest in black communities

Ice Cube defends partnership with Trump to invest in black communities

Hip-hop heavyweight Ice Cube pushed back Sunday defending allying with President Trump to develop a plan to invest in black communities — saying he presented his ideas to both campaigns, and Trump’s was the one that sat down with him.

I told everybody that I’m not playing politics with this,” the rapper and actor told “Fox News Sunday” anchor Chris Wallace of his “Contract with Black America” plan. “I’m willing to meet with anybody who could bring this to life and make it a reality.”

Cube — born O’Shea Jackson — said he resented his proposal to both the Trump administration and the campaign of his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.

But while the Biden team pushed off a sit-down with Cube until after Election Day, Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, met with him for three hours.

“They listened, heard what I had to say and pumped up their plan and presented it to the people,” said Cube, 51, on Sunday.

Trump last month unveiled a “Platinum Plan” to help bring prosperity to America’s black communities.

We [black Americans] make up 13 percent of the country and we’re only getting .5 percent of the wealth in the country,” Cube said Sunday on Fox. “Descendants of slaves, the ones who built this country, are being kinda forgotten in the fray.”

But rather than praise, the “It Was a Good Day” rhyme-spitter received scorn for the partnership, being accused of selling out for working with Team Trump.
