Cardi B has always been outspoken about her political views.

But now, the “Like What” rapper has revealed she’ll abstain from voting in the impending presidential election. “I don’t fuck with both of y’all n***as,” she told Rolling Stone, of Joe Biden and Donald Trump.

She shared that Biden has been a letdown and that she’s dealing with “layers and layers of disappointment” due to his mishandling of domestic and foreign policy matters. “I feel like people got betrayed,” Bardi added.

“It’s just like, damn, y’all not caring about nobody,” she continued. “Then, it really gets me upset that there is solutions to it. There is a solution. I know there’s a solution because you’re spending billions of dollars on any fucking thing.”

She’s been vocal against Biden wanting the U.S. to fund Israel in its fight against Palestine, and Ukraine in its war with Russia. She described to the magazine how artists of color can be “blackballed” for sharing their opinions on Palestine. 

“[America] don’t pay for endless wars for countries that have been going through shit for a very long time,” she said. “There’s countries [where] kids are getting killed every single day, but because the [U.S.] won’t benefit from that country, they won’t help. I don’t like that America has this superhero cape on. We never did things to be superheroes. We did things for our own convenience.”

Cardi voted for Biden in the last election. Back in 2020, before he won the presidency, the pair sat down for a virtual conversation, discussing COVID-19 and the pandemic, ongoing protests, and how it was important to boot Trump from the White House.
