Superstar Rapper, Cardi B has declared her new ambition for a US political career, saying she could “shake the table” as a member of US Congress.
“I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Government,” the brash artist from New York’s Bronx borough tweeted over the weekend.
“I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress. I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table,” the rapper known for hits like “Bodak Yellow,” “Money” and “I Like It” said.
She has been politically active in the past, as she encouraged her fans in an video to “vote for Daddy Bernie” in 2016, warning that foreign women “gonna get deported if Trump is president.”
She’s showing support for Sanders this presidential nomination season, most notably meeting with the senator from Vermont in a nail salon to discuss issues including raising the minimum wage, canceling student debt and climate change.
At 27 years old, she meets the threshold to run for the House of Representatives, which is 25. She would have to wait until her 30th birthday to launch a Senate bid, and her 35th for the presidency.
Fans praised the Grammy winner’s political musings on social media: “no need to go back to school if you don’t want to! you can learn plenty from folks already fighting in movements, and read up on your own or with others. you’d be great,” said Twitter user Natalie Shure.
