Speaking at The Ten Nail Bar, a millennial, African American women-owned nail salon in Detroit, Sanders touted several of his progressive platforms, including “Medicare for All,” wage increases and more.


The 2020 candidate later tweeted that "Cardi B's nails are juuuust a little different than mine. Our views on the issues are pretty similar." The singer is known for her long nails.

Sanders linked to their meeting, in which they held a discussion about a wide range of subjects.

“So people have to understand that: no more premiums, no more co-payments, no more deductibles, you can go to any doctor you want. And you do pay more in taxes depending on your income. The overwhelming majority of people will end up paying less than they’re currently paying in health care,” Sanders said in defense of his health care plan.

“Their taxes will go up, but they’re not going to be paying premiums, deductibles, co-payments.”

Sanders went on to call for a wage increase, saying jobs currently paying $9 an hour are insufficient for people to cover their basic necessities. Sanders has advocated for a $15 an hour minimum wage during his 2020 campaign.

“That don’t make no sense,” Cardi B replied, referring to a $9 an hour minimum wage.

The two found agreement on several issues, including codifying protections for immigrants protected under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and eliminating student debt.

Sanders concluded by urging young people and people of color to register to vote, saying “if we have young people voting in large numbers, you know what, I have zero doubt that Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpTeachers union launches 0K ad buy calling for education funding in relief bill FDA head pledges 'we will not cut corners' on coronavirus vaccine Let our values drive COVID-19 liability protection MORE will be defeated.”

“Let’s feel the Bern,” Cardi B responded.

Sanders has also sought to make inroads with voters of color, after drawing much of his backing in his unsuccessful 2016 presidential run from liberal white voters with college degrees.
