On Thursday (Oct. 29), Lil Wayne posted a photo of himself with President Trump on Twitter and thanked him for a "great meeting" to discuss the White Houses so-called "Platinum Plan" for Black America.
"Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus," Wayne wrote. "Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done."
Earlier in October, the Trump administration announced its Black Economic Empowerment "Platinum Plan," inspired in part by Ice Cubes Contract With Black America. The “Platinum Plan” aims 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, plus strengthening immigration and policing policies.
Cube came under fire for working with the administration, with critics calling the N.W.A rapper a "sellout," but he defended his involvement during an interview with Fox News Chris Wallace. "Ive told everybody that Im not playing politics with this," Cube said of his Contract With Black America. "Im willing to meet with anybody who could bring this to life and make it a reality."
