Cardi’s collaboration with Sanders comes weeks after she praised him on Twitter.
"I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I'm really sad how we let him down in 2016. This man been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such along [sic] time,” she wrote at the time. “Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign."
Cardi B and Bernie Sanders talk jobs, wages and the economy
Cardi B grills Bernie Sanders about minimum wage in new video, jobs, and economics, drawing on questions from Cardi B's social media followers.
Cardi B recently interviewed Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and the rapper has unveiled a new clip from their discussion. The pair addressed jobs, minimum wage and unions.
“A couple of weeks ago I asked my followers if you all had the chance to ask a Democratic candidate a question, what would that question be?” Cardi wrote in an Instagram caption for the video. “The topic that was mentioned the most by all of you was about raising MINIMUM WAGE.”
In the video, she gets right to the point. “What are we gonna do about wages in America?,” she asks Sanders. “Like, for example me, as a New Yorker, not now, but you know, when I was not famous, I just felt like no matter how many jobs I got, I wasn’t able to make ends meet. Like, I wasn’t able to pay my rent, get transportation and eat.”
