“I’m just gonna go with Joe Biden because I cannot see the next step of America being ran by number 45,” she said, adding she thinks the country will enter a recession following the coronavirus crisis.


Cardi B said that the youth vote doesn’t “really rock with Joe Biden because he’s conservative” compared to Sanders but that she’s “excited” the Vermont senator endorsed Biden Monday. She asked Sanders why people should vote for Biden and how to spread the enthusiasm. 

“What I said is if I don’t win ... I will endorse the Democrat who wins because Donald Trump is to my mind the most dangerous president in the modern history of America,” Sanders responded in the video. “This is a guy who lies all the time. He doesn’t believe in science. He downplayed this whole coronavirus, which has led the deaths of many thousands of people unnecessarily.”

Sanders added he is working with Biden to make him a more progressive candidate.

In the video, Cardi B criticized Trump and his administration’s response to the coronavirus pandemic and for accusing Democrats of trying to use it to “make him look bad.” 

“But the thing is, honey, you don’t need the Democrats to make you look bad,” she said. “You make your own self look bad.”

Critics of the president have slammed him for not acting quickly enough to combat the spread of the virus in its early days. But Trump has repeatedly defended his administration’s actions, citing the ban on travel from China and eventually Europe as crucial to curbing the spread.
