Ice Cube says that he met with both the Democratic and Republican parties to discuss what they plan on doing for Black Americans.
"I'mma push the program. We got a program, I'm pushing it on everybody. We also met with the Republicans and shit. They brought us in. We talked to 'em. They've moved their agenda a lot because of what we said. You know, they put $500B on the table," he added. Trump's "Platinum Plan" includes an initiative to "increase access to capital in Black communities by almost $500 billion" through creating new 3M jobs in Black communities and 500K black-owned businesses.

People say we can't take another four years of this. Black people, we can take anything. Shit," he continued, explaining his skepticism of the Democratic party.
