50 Cent, who was for President Trump before he was against him, lashed out at Lil Wayne on Thursday night (Oct. 29) after Weezy posed with The Donald following a reported meeting during which the two discussed the president’s “Platinum Plan” for Black America.
“Oh no Wayne, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE,” 50 tweeted, reposting the snap of a grinning Wayne next to Trump.
“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,” Wayne tweeted earlier in the day. “He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
The President’s plan to woo Black voters ahead of Tuesday’s (Nov. 3) election includes proposals to prosecute the Ku Klux Klan and Antifa as terrorist groups, making Juneteenth a federal holiday and a proposal to make lynching a national hate crime.
The Platinum Plan was reportedly inspired in part by Ice Cube’s Contract With Black America and after Cube also came under fire for working with the administration he told Fox News’ Chris Wallace, “I’ve told everybody that I’m not playing politics with this. I’m willing to meet with anybody who could bring this to life and make it a reality.”
50 drew backlash earlier this month when he said he was backing Trump over fears that a Joe Biden administration would mean higher tax bills for him, only to do a full reversal just days later following some stern words from his ex-girlfriend comedian/author Chelsea Handler. “I never liked him,” 50 wrote after changing his mind.

If Brett Favre, Jack Nicklaus, Lil Wayne, and Lil Pump all support Trump, imagine what kind of broad coalition exists out there in the electorate.
