An African American celebrity supported giving the president another four years in the Oval Office after discovering taxes would jump under the Democratic Party’s leadership.
Curtis Jackson has declared to his 26 million social media followers that he is voting for President Donald Trump at the upcoming election on Nov. 3.
The rapper—also known as “50 Cent”—made the decision shortly after reviewing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s tax plan, which would tax hard-working Californians up to 62.6 percent of their total earnings if they earned more than $400,000 annually.
Under a Biden administration, high earners in New York City would pay 62 percent tax, New Jerseyites 60 percent, and New York state residents 58 percent, according to a screenshot he shared on Instagram.
“Sixty-two percent [tax rates] are you out of ‘ya [expletive] mind?” he commented on the screenshot. “What the [expletive]! Vote for Trump, I am out, [expletive] New York the Knicks [basketball team] never win anyway.”
50 Cent also revealed he is not bothered by mainstream media reports that accuse President Trump of being prejudiced towards people belonging to another race.
“I do not care [if President] Trump does not like black people,” he said.
The remarks came just days after the rapper shared a video of the president dancing to the Village People’s “Y.M.C.A.” classic disco song from the 1970s.
In the post, he commented that software applications that run automated tasks over the Internet appear to rate the incumbent’s election performance highly.
“Still no [expletive] given,” he said on Instagram. “The bots support Trump.”
His latest support for the 2020 Trump campaign reflects a growing chorus of Hollywood celebrities who promised to vote for President Trump.
Actress Kirstie Alley recently told her 1 million Twitter fans that she would vote for the president because he is “not a politician.”
The actress, who is remembered for her roles in the original “Star Trek” movie sequel and television sitcom series “Cheers,” revealed she voted for the incumbent in the 2016 general election. She thinks President Trump helped the nation enjoy an economic boom until the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus spread at the beginning of 2020.
“I voted for him four years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason,” she said on Twitter. “He gets things done quickly, and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it, folks, there you have it.”
According to The Blaze, this was the first time Alley went public about her voting preferences, although she did previously endorse President Trump.
