The “I Like It” rapper tweeted to her more than 6 million followers on Tuesday:

It's not the first time that Cardi B — a vocal critic of President TrumpDonald John TrumpDavid Axelrod after Ginsburg cancer treatment: Supreme Court vacancy could 'tear this country apart' EU says it will 'respond in kind' if US slaps tariffs on France Ginsburg again leaves Supreme Court with an uncertain future MORE — has rooted on Sanders’s presidential campaign.


In a video she filmed during the 2016 race, the then-VH1 “Love & Hip Hop: New York” star told her fans, “Vote for Daddy Bernie, bitch!”

“You all love f--king foreign bitches, them hoes gonna get deported if Trump is president,” Cardi B said.

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

And in an April interview with Variety, the 26-year-old performer — born Belcalis Almánzar — said, “Imma always go with Bernie,” when asked about 2020.

“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.
