Cardi b accepts the Album of the Year award onstage during the 2019 BET awards.
Rapper Cardi B voiced support Tuesday for US Senator Bernie Sanders, a progressive mounting a campaign for the Democratic nomination, saying voters "let him down" in his 2016 bid against Hillary Clinton.
"I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I'm really sad how we let him down in 2016," the outspoken critic of President Donald Trump tweeted to her more than six million followers.
"This man been fighting for equal rights,HUMAN rights for such along time," the Bronx artist wrote of Sanders, an independent senator from the state of Vermont.
"Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign."
"Thank you @iamcardib !" tweeted Sanders in response. "Our fight for justice is far from over and we are not giving up."
The rapper born Belcalis Almanzar has a history of backing Sanders, famously encouraging her fans in an expletive-laden clip to "vote for Daddy Bernie" in 2016, warning that foreign women "gonna get deported if Trump is president."
In April the Grammy-winning 26-year-old told Variety that "Imma always be with Bernie," when asked about the 2020 vote.
"Bernie don't say things to be cool. Like, there's pictures of him being an activist from a very, very, very long time."
In 2018 the 77-year-old senator gave Cardi B a shout-out after she expressed admiration for the New Deal policies of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in an interview with GQ.
Earlier this year the rapper unleashed a profanity-laced rant blasting Trump and the lengthy US government shutdown, slamming the president's callback of furloughed federal employees to complete vital government tasks without pay.
Democratic presidential front-runner Joe Biden clashed with progressive challengers Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on healthcare in a debate on Thursday, defending Obamacare and pushing them to be honest
US Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders recently released his health-care plan, which he calls “Medicare for All.” With a name like that, one would think that the proposal involves extending the Medicare system, which provides health-care insurance to the elderly, to all Americans. But Sanders’s plan is something different.
The fierce loyalty Bernie Sanders inspires in his supporters is creating a dilemma for the Democratic Party. For a sliver of Sanders’ base, it’s Bernie or bust. They may detest President Donald Trump, but they didn’t vote for Hillary Clinton and they’re not sure they’ll back the Democratic nominee in 2020 if Sanders isn’t on the ballot. They’re willing do whatever it takes to push the party to adopt his ideas.
