Rapper Cardi B Claims She’s Filing For Nigerian Citizenship After Trump’s Iran Strike


Here we go again.

Another TDS-infected celebrity is now threatening to leave the USA following Trump’s airstrike that killed Iranian terrorist Qaessem Soleimani.

This time it’s rapper Cardi B, who says she is filing for her Nigerian citizenship amid the now-descalated conflict with Iran.

Here's what Cardi B said on Twitter in a super foul-mouthed post:

Nigerian official Abike Dabiri-Erewa tweeted back at Cardi B that they are willing to take her with open arms!


Fox News has more to say:

Cardi B says she’s planning to file for citizenship in Nigeria after taking a dig at President Donald Trump for his part in the increasing tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

The 27-year-old “Money” singer took to Twitter shortly after Trump ordered an airstrike that killed Iran's top general, Qassem Soleimani. The killing sparked several memes and concerns on Twitter of a conflict between the two nations, and Cardi weighed in.

“Naaaaa these memes are f---in [emojis] but s--- ain’t no joke ! Specially being from New York,” she wrote.

The star went on to directly criticize Trump for his part in making the U.S. a potential target for Iran following the death of Soleimani.

“Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger. Dumbest move Trump did till date ...I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship,” she concluded.

Although it’s hard to tell if the singer is serious about fleeing the U.S. for fear of an attack by Iran, a Nigerian government official responded to the tweet, noting that she is welcome in the country.

“Picking my tribe,” Cardi, who was born in New York City, added in a follow-up tweet


Nigerian government official Abike Dabiri-Erewa responded to Cardi’s tweet, saying, “As one in charge of the Diaspora for [Nigeria], we can’t wait to receive you again. Our doors are open, sister.”


The “Bodak Yellow” rapper has previously been vocal about her strong disapproval of the president and has also expressed her interest in Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.
