Ice Cube is trending because it was revealed that he’s working with the Donald Trump administration.

Today (October 14), a senior advisor for the Trump administration, Katrina Pierson, tweeted some interesting news. She announced Ice Cube has been working with Trump to develop his Platinum Plan for his presidential campaign. The Platinum Plan is an initiative to bring $500 billion into Black communities. This is intended to promote affordable health care, Black businesses, education, and more, XXL reports. 

Earlier this week, Ice Cube spoke on why he decided to dive into politics. He said that he’s not associating with the Democratic or Republican Party, but promised he’s in contact with people to talk about real issues. 

“I’ve been making contacts trying to talk about these real issues. Straight up, I believe the Democrats have… they’ve been nice. They’ve been cordial, so to speak. I don’t really see them pushing their policies in any different direction. They’re still talking this minority, minority, people of color shit that don’t necessarily include us. That don’t necessarily include Black Americans, especially descendants of slaves.”

Later on, he confirmed that he met with Republicans to discuss the $500 billion that they plan to allocate to Black communities.

“We also met with the Republicans and shit. They brought us in. We talked to ’em,” Ice Cube went on. “They’ve moved their agenda a lot because of what we said. You know, they put $500 billion on the table.”
