Ice Cube Collaborates With President Trump To Restore Black America After Biden Campaign Blows Him Off

Among the hordes of celebrities becoming vocal in the political world, famous actor and rapper Ice Cube has paying particularly close attention to what the Presidential nominees intend to do to help the black community.
After drafting what he is calling The Contract with Black America, both parties allegedly reached out to him, however only the Trump campaign agreed to meet and speak with him.
Earlier this week, Ice Cube sent out a statement via Twitter addressing his thoughts and concerns on the two major political parties in our country - specifically saying that police reform and safety measures simply wont be enough for Black America. He goes on to say that the black community wont get the respect without the money - citing the 500-Billion Dollar investment plan in President Trump's Platinum Plan proposal.
Here is his monologue:
Ice Cube said that he'd responded to the Biden campaign to talk about issues unblack communities and possible solutions. The Biden campaign declined to meet with the rapper, stating that they would contact him after the election was over - a seemingly common response from the campaign.
Even a step further, CNN canceled their interview with Ice Cube, which drew criticism: "it seems like they can’t handle the truth", said Ice Cube.
Ice Cube’s accusation comes after he revealed this week that the Trump campaign implemented part of his Contract with Black America while Democrats blew him off, allegedly telling him that they would address the issue “after the election.”
The Trump campaign confirmed Ice Cube’s assertion in a statement to Breitbart News, adding that Democrats are taking the black vote for granted.
“Trump officials reached out to Ice Cube after he posted his Contract With Black America and incorporated some of his ideas and thoughts into the Platinum Plan,” said Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson. Trump’s “Platinum Plan” is a roadmap for economic, educational, and financial investments in black communities.
It's no surprise that Chris Cuomo decided to cancel the interview after it became known that Ice Cube had previously met with the Trump campaign and had constructive, successful dialogue.
Ice Cube defended his position on TMZ:
The canceled interview would only serve to undermine the democratic agenda and show the fallacies of Joe Biden's plans (or lack thereof) for black communities.
Daniel Kreps for The Rolling Stone writes:
After being contacted by both parties, the Democrats said they’d touch base on the CWBA after Election Day, while the president’s administration reached Ice Cube and absorbed some of the CWBA into the White House’s “Platinum Plan,” with Pierson then thanking the rapper for his assistance.
Trump’s “Platinum Plan” promises to “increase access to capital in black communities by almost $500 billion” by creating 500,000 black-owned businesses and 3 million new jobs for the black community, as well as “access to better education and job training.” The Platinum Plan also pledges to strengthen Trump’s immigration and policing policies in order to protect jobs and communities.
The time and effort put out by the Trump campaign prompted the public response from the rapper:
Though Ice Cube has no publicly endorsed either candidate, it is clear that one has made a significant impression on him - a positive impression that will likely spill over to his millions of followers on social media. Celebrities are not all cut from the same cloth and many are seeing the positive impacts that President Trump has and will have on different communities across the country.
