President Trump promised he would win a larger share of the Black vote than any Republican candidate.
Trump appears to be KEEPING that promise!
Rapper Lil Wayne is the latest icon to endorse President Trump.
He is incredibly respected in the Black community.
Lil Wayne also praised Trump's "Platinum Plan" for minority communities.
It was a major endorsement and is sure to send shockwaves through Hollywood and the electorate.
See Lil Wayne's post below:
Specifically, Lil Wayne told his followers: "He [President Trump] can get it done."
The New York Daily News has more details on this groundbreaking endorsement:
Lil Wayne tweeted support for President Trump on Thursday after meeting with the President in Miami.
“Just had a great meeting with [President Trump] besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” Wayne wrote. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
The 38-year-old Wayne, whose legal name is Dwayne Carter, referenced the Black Economic Empowerment “Platinum Plan,” which is also supported by Ice Cube. The plan, if it is implemented, will attempt to help Black business owners.
Well-known hip-hop artists including Questlove, Lil Jon and 50 Cent criticized Wayne along with many other people.
The Trump backing is a change of heart for Wayne, who tweeted support for Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Some politicians talk about change.
But President Trump has enacted REAL and meaningful change.
People who are paying attention are noticing.
Lil Wayne is apparently one of those people.
Not everyone is happy...
Many people took to social media to criticize Lil Wayne.
The reality is that people who meet with President Trump are impressed by his leadership!
This is why Lil Wayne endorsed the president.
It's especially a big deal, since Lil Wayne famously supported Hillary in 2016.
People Magazine has more details:
Lil Wayne is expressing support for Donald Trump.
The rapper, 38, shared a photo with Trump, 74, on Twitter Thursday, saying that they had a "great meeting."
Lil Wayne (né Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.) also praised the president's Platinum Plan, which was unveiled earlier this month.
"Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership," Lil Wayne said in his tweet. "He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done."
While Trump didn't say anything about the meeting on his own Twitter, he did retweet Lil Wayne's post. Yahoo News White House Correspondent Hunter Walker reported that the Trump campaign sent a text message blast out to Black supporters about the meeting.
The Platinum Plan, which is a proposal that the Trump administration revealed earlier this month, lists "pillars" of "opportunity, security, prosperity, fairness," and promises to provide jobs and support for Black-owned businesses.
The proposed plan comes after Trump has disparaged the Black Lives Matter movement, calling it a "symbol of hate."
In addition to promising to "increase access to capital in black communities by almost $500 billion" over the next four years, the plan includes a proposal to make Juneteenth a national holiday.
Lil Wayne's public support of Trump was met with mixed reactions online.
"Grateful to see this. This is about helping people. End of story," one Twitter user wrote. But many of the reactions were far from positive.
Comedian Sarah Cooper wrote, "'He assured me we will get it done' My god how dumb are you."
Amid the protests against police brutality over the summer, Lil Wayne expressed support for law enforcement, citing an incident when he was 12 and "saved by a white cop."
The reality is that President Trump has made inroads where no other Republican president was able to.
The election is coming closer.
And no matter what the polls say, Democrats are beginning to panic!
