Last year, Sanders tweeted, “Cardi B is right,” after the Grammy Award-winner gave an interview praising former President Franklin Roosevelt.

“Bernie don’t say things to be cool. Like, there’s pictures of him being an activist from a very, very, very long time [ago.]”

Sanders’s campaign didn’t immediately return ITK’s request for comment about the support from the outspoken rapper.
