Cube spoke primarily to Chris Cuomo about his “Black America contract,” a plan he released earlier this year to eradicate racial inequality. Cube said he has never met Trump and does not trust his campaign or Joe Biden’s campaign – he will act.
“I didn’t go to work with either campaign. Both campaigns contacted me,” said Cube. “Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Black America deal. One campaign said, ‘We love what you have, but let’s really get into that after the elections.’ One campaign says: “We love what you have. Do you mind talking to us about it? “And that̵
The entertainer tweeted on Wednesday that the Trump campaign had “adjusted its plan” for Black America after speaking with him.
Cube is ready to work with both teams, and whoever he will work with.
“I don’t play these political games anymore, we’re not part of a team … so I’ll go to whoever is in power and I’ll talk to them about our problems, in particular,” Cube said, explaining that “our” refers to black Americans. “I don’t go in there and talk about minorities, I don’t go in there and talk about people of color or diversity or none of them. I go there for black Americans who are descendants of slaves.”
During Friday’s interview, Cube spoke about how to fill the wealth gap and how those who have no money are being disregarded in this country.
“This is the problem in America, black people have no capital,” he said. “We can’t survive another 100 years in America if we live like this.”
On Tuesday, Katrina Pierson, a senior adviser to the president, tweeted that Cube had helped develop Trump’s “Platinum Plan”.
“Leaders will lead, haters will hate,” she wrote on Twitter. “Thanks for leading!”
Ice Cube unveiled its 13-part plan in July, which included items like police and prison reform, and interest-free home loans. Despite denouncing Trump in 2016, he has said in recent months that he wants change regardless of the political party.
“When someone has a problem with this, it seems like a personal problem,” Cube told Cuomo.
