Ice Cube recently said that he would be open to voting for President Donald Trump if he comes around on some of the issues that the rapper feels passionately about. During an interview with TMZ, Ice Cube spoke about the "Contract With Black America," which he wants the next commander-in-chief to sign. He said that he would throw his support behind the first of the two presidential candidates, Trump or Joe Biden, who does sign it. Given this bold statement, it's no surprise that Ice Cube is causing a ton of conversation.
Ice Cube introduced the "Contract With Black America" back in July. This contract calls on lawmakers to make concrete, policy-based promises to help bring an end to systemic racism in the United States. On Twitter, Ice Cube addressed these comments even further. He wrote that he is a single-issue voter and that whichever candidate "does the most for Black Americans" will get his vote, regardless of whether it's Trump or Biden.
After getting a very close look at our politics and politicians, I’ve turned into a single issue voter. My single issue is, whoever does the most for Black Americans will get my vote. If you leave us blank, I will leave you blank. Crumbles not excepted.— Ice Cube (@icecube) September 26, 2020
On Twitter, users had a ton of responses to Ice Cube's comments about his "Contract for Black America" and, particularly, his comment about potentially voting for Trump this November. Check out what some of those individuals are saying.
I will never vote for a Grand Obstructionist Party Member (GOP) or Republican. Nor will I ever believe in or support becoming a single issue voter because that too may very well be antithetical to helping black people.— David Jenkins (@jenkinsdav) September 26, 2020
Just a reminder, Joe Biden has a real plan for Black America that you could read on his site. Trump has a scam that only goal is deceptive headlines. If you don't know by now you haven't been paying attention— Steven (@StevenBiko) September 26, 2020
We don't care anymore. You have proven to be a chaos agent!— Corey Bu-Shea (@coreybking) September 26, 2020
You should have 4 years of evidence to know by now right?— Sunny Chopra (@sunnychopra1818) September 26, 2020
If Trump wins this election we all become zero issue voters. Voting will be meaningless going forward.— Som (@SomNaderi) September 26, 2020
If you choose to believe Trump w his track record of blatant dishonesty, that's on you. He's promising things he's already taken away to puppet POC into voting for him. He believes everyone is as gullible as his cult.— Laurie (@Wskers_On_Kttns) September 26, 2020
I use to follow politics extremely close. For years...and this is my conclusion...they do not give 2 fucks about anyone else but themselves. On both sides. Its one big dog and pony show and they laugh at the division created. It will never change. Never.— Eddie in Santa Paula (@EDnSantaPaula) September 26, 2020
