Lil Wayne meets with President Trump, praises his ‘platinum plan’ for Black Americans

Lil Wayne took to Twitter Thursday to commend President Trump for his work on criminal reform and his proposed plan for the Black community, the Platinum Plan.

The rapper shared a photo of himself with the president, taken after their Thursday meeting in Miami, which he referred to as “great.” Both are pictured without masks, smiling and giving the thumbs up.

“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done,” Lil Wayne wrote alongside the photo.

Many Twitter users criticized Lil Wayne for his positive words about Trump, made just five days before the presidential election. The rapper didn’t state any kind of official endorsement for Trump’s reelection, however.

Rapper Ice Cube also faced blowback last week after it was revealed that he was working with the Trump administration on the Platinum Plan.
