You didn’t think La Caldi was going to stay quiet following recent political crises, did you? After all, it isn’t the first time the 27-year-old rapper is airing her grievances about the U.S. and its president. Still, her latest comments about Donald Trump might be her most seething yet. Cardi B took to Instagram on January 8 to share the perspective of the “Voice of Iranians,” posting a clip from a now-viral video by ABC News’ Nightline. “They not terrorist,” she wrote in her Instagram caption, “Trump is.”
Cardi’s clip features an impassioned young man speaking to ABC News’ Martha Raddatz in Tehran, where over a million people have gathered in the Iranian capital city for a memorial service for Qassem Soleimani — Iran’s top general killed in a Trump-ordered drone attack last week. The young man, 24-year-old college student Hussein, is in tears as he’s filmed. “Is this democracy?” he asks, “Are we humans or not? What should we do? You tell us.”
When Raddatz asks, “What is your message to America?” Hussein answers, “I’m saying, we love Americans, but we hate your president.” In the full video, the young man adds that “Trump made a big mistake. He killed our hero.”
Cardi had no problem echoing Hussein’s statement, as she’s already admitted to hating Trump “with a f*cking passion” in the past. When the president allowed last year’s government shutdown, the rapper expressed, “Our country is in a hellhole right now. We really need to take this serious. I feel like we need to take some kind of action. I don’t know what type of action, bitch, because this is not what I do. Bitch, I’m scared. This is crazy and I really feel bad for these people who gotta go to fucking work to not get motherfucking paid.”
Most recently, Cardi joked that she wanted to apply for Nigerian citizenship to leave the U.S. after Trump’s “dumbest move” in Iran, threatening potential war with the Middle Eastern country. “Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger,” she tweeted earlier this week.
