Both Wayne and Ice Cube met with the Trump administration to discuss the Platinum Plan, which promises to increase access to capital in Black communities by almost $500 billion over the next four years.
“But Trump’s Platinum Plan for Black folks is nothing but fool’s gold, because you can’t bank on a word he says,” warned Legend, who continued to slam Trump.
“Ask the students of Trump University. Ask all of the contractors he stiffed. Ask the people his charity was supposed to help before it was shut down for being a fraud. Ask all the Black and Brown Americans who are dying from this virus and losing their jobs under his watch. The president isn’t strong. He’s a coward. And his career in business and in government has been failure after failure after failure.”
Legend performed “Glory” with Common at Monday’s rally, while Lady Gaga was campaigning for Biden in Pittsburgh. Meanwhile, Lil Pump was welcomed onstage by President Trump at his rally in Michigan.
