In a stunning announcement, rapper 50 Cent has endorsed President Donald Trump for another four years in office.
It wasn’t all that long ago that 50 Cent criticized the president over his handling over the coronavirus pandemic.
“You wanted a reality show host as president,” said 50 Cent. “Well now you’re on Survivor.”
However, despite the way he felt about Trump previously, 50 Cent says he will be casting a vote for the Republican candidate. The famous rapper’s change of heart appears to be due to seeing a graphic of Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan on CNBC’s program “Power Lunch.”
‘I Don’t Care Trump Doesn’t Like Black People’
“WHAT THE F—! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT,” wrote 50 Cent, endorsing Trump as the President of the United States. “F— NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f——mind.” The caption also includes several emojis.
50 shared a picture of Joe Biden’s alleged tax rate plan by state, which includes a 62.6% rate for California. He claims that he’s got enough information from this one issue alone to vote for Trump.
Meanwhile, for context, the Biden tax plan only applies to people making more than $400,000 per year.
The “Get Rich Or Die Tryin'” artist didn’t want to support Trump’s presidential campaign in the past. He told James Corden on his late-night show last year that he turned down Trump’s $500,000 offer to come to his 2016 inauguration, saying, “All money’s not good money.”
While many of his fans criticized his stance on the issue and prioritizing it over racial justice for Black Americans, conservative political commentator Tomi Lahren welcomed him with open arms by commenting “Amen!!!” and “Welcome to the Trump Train!” on his Instagram post.
50 Cent is now added to a list of celebrities who support the re-election of President Trump. Some of those celebrities include Kid Rock, Jon Voight, Roseanne Barr, Kirstie Alley, Scott Baio and several others.
