Ice Cube sets the record straight on his plans with Trump in interview with Chris Cuomo

After taking heat for a few days, rapper Ice Cube spoke to CNN on Friday to set the record straight on why he was working with President Donald Trump.

Cube spoke mostly with Chris Cuomo about his “Contract With Black America,” a plan he released earlier this year to address racial inequality. Cube said he has never met Trump and is not trusting either his campaign or Joe Biden’s campaign — he’s going by action.

“I didn’t run to go work with any campaign. Both campaigns contacted me,” Cube said. “Both campaigns wanted to talk to me about the Contract with Black America. One campaign said, ‘We love what you have, but let’s really dig into after the election.’ And one campaign said ‘We love what you have, do you mind talking to us about it?’ And that’s what I did, so I didn’t run to nobody.”

The entertainer tweeted Wednesday that the Trump campaign made adjustments to “their plan” for Black America after talking to him.

Trump’s plan — dubbed the “Platinum Plan” — includes initiatives such as “neighborhoods with highest policing standards” and replacing “failing schools” with “full school choice.”Cube is willing to work with both teams, he said, and with whomever will work with him.”I’m not playing no more of these political games, we’re not part of a team … so I’m going to whoever’s in power and I’m going to speak to them about our problems, specifically,” Cube said, explaining that “our” is referring to Black Americans. “I’m not going in there talking about minorities, I’m not going in there talking about people of color or diversity or none of that stuff. I’m going there for Black Americans, the ones who are descendants of slaves.”
