Sanders, 77, and the 26-year-old “I Like It” rapper talked about eliminating student debt, addressing climate change and raising the minimum wage in the video, which was filmed at a nail salon in Detroit owned by two black women, according to CNN.

Cardi B voiced support for Sanders earlier this month in his White House bid, saying voters “let him down” during the 2016 election.

Sanders later praised the rapper after she endorsed his presidential run, telling MSNBC that she is “very sharp and understands a lot about politics and a lot about history,” adding that the two had recently chatted.

"I'm very appreciative to have her support," he added.
