Democrats debate retweeting Cardi B’s post of Trump’s government shutdown
Senate Democrats debated on twitter whether or not to re-tweet a post by rapper Cardi B after she gave her take on the Trump government shutdown.
Longtime Bernie Sanders supporter Cardi B is reluctant to talk about Donald Trump, but she doesn’t mince words about the president.
“I hate him. I just hate him,” she fumed to Variety on Friday night. “I don’t even want to get political. I have a court case,” she added with a laugh.
As far as who she supports from the 2020 presidential election, Cardi said, “I’ma always go with Bernie. Bernie don’t say things to be cool. There’s pictures of him being an activist from a very, very, very long time [ago].”

She added, “As a matter of fact, I was watching the news and I saw this guy Tim Ryan, and his speech was very convincing to me. He really wants to give the United States free healthcare, and that’s a big plus. We need healthcare!”
The 28-year-old rapper made waves in January when she slammed Trump over the government shutdown.

This s–t is crazy. Our country is in a hellhole now — all for a f–king wall.”
