Cardi B has some thoughts about the partial government shutdown now in its 26th day, and currently the longest in modern history and she’s taking President Donald Trump to task over his proposed US-Mexico border wall.
In an Instagram post hours ago, the rapper expressed sympathy for the federal government workers who have to work without pay, while the shutdown continues.
“But this sh-t is really f—ing serious bro,” she said. “This sh-t is crazy. Like, our country is in a hellhole right now all for a f—ing wall.”
The post comes after she slammed Trump during on Instagram live this week, saying he “promised these motherf—ers something that you know you couldn’t do,” in reference to the repeated promises Trump made to voters before and after the election that he would build a border wall and Mexico would pay for it.
“Even if motherf—ers build the wall, that’s still not going to f—ing prevent people coming into this country,” she said.
Trump’s proposed wall is at the crux of the current government shutdown. In December, after signalling that he would sign a stopgap measure to keep the government funded until February 8, he caved to pressure from some in his base and said he would not sign any bill that doesn’t provide $5.7 billion for a border wall.
