Cardi B Says She Might Run for Congress


Is Cardi B making a run for office?

In a series of tweets, the “Press” rapper expressed her desire in becoming a politician. “I think I want to be a politician,” she tweeted on Sunday. “I really love government even tho I don’t agree with government.”

After watching war documentaries, Cardi was inspired to explore her political aspirations. “Like I was watching war documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country have you need people! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war wen this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American,” she added.

She followed it up hours later with another tweet saying she thinks she could run for Congress if she went back to school. “I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress.I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense,” said Cardi. “I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.”

This is not the first time Cardi has shared an interest in politics. She has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump on social media. Last year, she sat down with Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders for an interview where they discussed issues facing Americans today including police brutality, immigration, and healthcare.

She already has the endorsement of Bernie’s supporters. “We’re early endorsing @iamcardib,” tweeted the @People4Bernie account.

Before she launches her political campaign, Cardi is set to release her sophomore album. She has been in the studio working on the highly-anticipated follow-up to her Grammy-winning debut Invasion of Privacy and recently teased a new Wheezy-produced track.
