Another Black rapper endorses President Donald Trump! New Orleans’ hip-hop heavyweight, Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., professionally known as Lil Wayne, has thrown on his MAGA hat as he met with Trump and officially endorsed the president for another term according to a Tweet he sent out Thursday.
Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus 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. pic.twitter.com/Q9c5k1yMWf

In this incredibly awkward year, with the coronavirus pandemic, the racial strife, and continued police brutality against Black people, Black rappers endorsing presidents not named Obama has placed the world—or Black Twitter, at least—in a tailspin.
After gaining cooperation from the likes of Ice Cube and an endorsement from 50 Cent (who later withdrew his support and said he was just joking), Trump met directly with Wayne, who seems convinced that Trump will do well by Blacks with his purported Platinum Plan.
Social media immediately took notice!

That trump believes that Black people are so damn dumb as to follow behind lil Wayne, fiddy and puffy and nem, speaks volumes about what he truly thinks of us. But…he is gonna learn today. Tuesday cannot get here quickly enough.

I’m also mad at Lil Wayne for this “I’m gonna go meet with a white supremacist” outfit. 🙁
