Ice Cube has apparently been working with the Trump Administration to develop something called the “Platinum Plan” for black Americans.
Twitter spent Wednesday afternoon boggled over the development after Trump advisor Katrina Pierson tweeted the news out on her personal account Tuesday evening.
Cube seemed to try to get out in front of the news earlier in the week, posting a confessional-style video to Twitter Sunday titled “DON’T KILL THE MESSENGER.” In it, a downcast-looking Cube explains that he has met with both Democrat and Republican leaders, saying, “Who knows what’s really gonna happen?”
“I just know one of them is gonna win … I don’t know if can really matter to us, we gotta just push whoever’s in there, because ain’t nobody really solved our problems,” he says, addressing the black community. “People say we can’t take another four years of this — black people, s–t, we can take anything.”
“The Platinum Plan,” which reportedly includes a $500 billion package for the Black community from the Republicans.
Ice Cube, who boasts his non-partisan involvement, says he’s not siding with the Democrats after a host of other Black entertainers have endorsed Biden and Kamala Harris.
The Platinum Plan, which is a four-year plan, $500 billion strategies to “Increase access to capital in Black communities by almost $500 billion”, by creating 3 million new jobs for the Black community and creating 500,000 new Black-owned businesses.
