A Trump surrogate is claiming Ice Cube joined forces with the President’s campaign to help Black people — something Cube is now addressing, and not entirely denying.
Cube was forced to respond Wednesday after the Internet went up in flames upon hearing he’d supposedly teamed up with the Trump administration to draft its Platinum Plan, to address issues in the Black community. The plan purportedly dovetails with Cube’s own Contract with Black America.
He tweets, “Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me. Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.”
Every side is the Darkside for us here in America. They’re all the same until something changes for us. They all lie and they all cheat but we can’t afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change. Our justice is bipartisan. https://t.co/xFIXXpOs8B
When someone accused him of going over to “the dark side,” Cube fired back that all politicians are pretty much on the dark side when it comes to helping African-Americans … which is his ultimate priority, regardless of who he needs to work with to achieve that.
All this hubbub started when senior Trump advisor Katrina Pierson tweeted what some considered fairly shocking news — namely, that Cube had “stepped up” to work with the Trump administration to develop DT’s “Platinum Plan.”
Trump’s plan — which he first discussed in Atlanta last month — includes proposals like increasing capital in Black communities by as much as $500 billion and providing better access to equitable education and job opportunities.
While this development might’ve been a curveball to many, it really isn’t that surprising if you’ve been following Cube’s messaging lately — he pretty much told us right here on “TMZ Live” about a month or so ago that he’d sit down with both parties to flesh out these issues.
Sounds like he followed through on his word … and that Trump beat Biden and co. to the punch.
