Cardi B interviewed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for Elle magazine’s September 2020 issue on Monday, but she also shared what appeared as her far left vision for America, as Biden patiently gazed while she talked.
During the interview, the “WAP” singer said she has “a whole list of things that I want and I wish and I desire for our next president”.
“But first and first… I just want Trump out. You know what I’m saying? Like– his mouth gets us in trouble so much. … I don’t want to be lied to– I don’t want– like you know, we’re dealing with a pandemic right now, right?” Cardi B wondered.
“And I just want answers. I want to know when this is over. Like you know, I want to go back to my job. I wanna be able to go outside. I wanna be able to feel like I’m not trapped in my home. And– but I don’t want somebody to lie to me and tell me it’s okay to go outside, it’s okay not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be okay. … No, I want like a timeline of when things are gonna get better,” she continued.
“I want a president to tell me what are the steps to get better, besides, um, you know, taking precautions, like with our mask and quarantining. I need somebody to tell me, like this is gonna be over when we find this cure. This is why it’s taking so long. This is why other countries are doing better ours, when it comes to this pandemic. I need need somebody to tell me the truth. The hardcore truth,” Cardi B said.
She continued: “And also, I of course, want free Medicare. And this is why it’s important to have free Medicare, because look, … look what’s happening right now. See why we should’ve had free Medicare for a long time? I of course, think that we need free college education. That’s second.” Continued Below
“And, I want Black people to stop getting killed, and no justice for it. I’m tired of it. … I just want more stricter laws that is fair to Black citizens, and you know, it’s fair for cops too. If you kill somebody that doesn’t have a weapon on them, you go to jail. You know what, if I kill somebody, I gotta go to jail. You gotta go to jail too. … That’s all I want,” Cardi B added.
Candace Owen’s responded to the remarks made my Cardi B to Joe Biden on Twitter Monday, calling it “embarrassing”.
“This is why the black community is not taken seriously by politicians. Look at what we put forth—saying ‘okkurrt’ to a presidential candidate. This isn’t funny, it’s flat out [embarrassing] & extraordinarily obtuse. But this is how the Democrats view all minorities: as imbeciles,” Owens expressed. Video Below

During the interview Cardi B also asked Biden, “When you see the taxes coming off your check, you don’t understand, because you feel like you’re putting in so many hours. People want to know, can you provide college education, this [health care] plan, without a big chunk of taxes coming out of our checks?”
“Yes, we can,” Biden responded. “And the way we can pay for all of this is doing practical things, like making sure that everybody has to pay their fair share. [For example] no corporation should pay less than 15 percent tax.”
“If I get elected president, anybody with a family [that makes] less than 125 grand, you’re going to get free education,” he said. “And everybody gets free community college.”
