American rapper, Lil Wayne is trending on social media after he posted a photo of him and American President, Donald Trump.
On Thursday evening, October 29, Lil Wayne via his Twitter shared a photo of himself standing with the current President of the United States.
In the caption for the photo, Wayne revealed that they recently met to discuss criminal justice reform and Trump’s Platinum Plan for his campaign.
“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”
The platform for Trump’s Platinum Plan promises to bring almost $500 billion into Black communities, provide better and affordable health care, offer access to capital for Black businesses, educational opportunities, and more.
Wayne’s support of President Trump has angered many of his fans who aren’t fond of the current Commander in Chief. The move to meet with Trump had fans on social media bringing up Weezy’s past remarks about Black Lives Matter, which didn’t sit well with the Black community.
In 2016, during an interview on Nightline, the Young Money leader made controversial statements regarding the Black Lives Matter movement after reporter Linsey Davis explained the cause to him.
“That just sounds weird,” he admitted. “I don’t even know why you put a name on it. It’s not a name. It’s not ‘whatever, whatever.’ It’s somebody got shot by a policeman for a fucked up reason … I am a young, Black, rich mutherfucker. If that don’t let you know that America understand Black mutherfuckers matter these days, I don’t know what it is. Don’t come at me with that dumb shit, mam. My life matter, especially to my bitches.”
“I don’t feel connected to a damn thing that ain’t got nothin’ to do with me,” he continued. “If you do, you crazy as shit. I’m connected to this flag right fucking here, because I’m connected. I’m a gangbanger now.”
