He did speak of the Trump administration for winning over the Black Americans by the announcement of its Black Economic Empowerment “Platinum Plan”. The platinum plan is inspired in part by the rapper Ice Cube’s Contract With Black America. The Platinum Plan intends to boost access to capital in black communities by nearly 500 billion dollars by establishing 500,000 black-owned businesses and 3 million fresh jobs for the black community people, also reinforcing immigration and patrolling strategies. The secretary of WhiteHouse, Kayleigh McEnany lets out that White House officials recently have been in conversation with Lil Wayne’s team and it concluded with a gathering when Trump was supposed to campaign in Florida, by noting “I think you are seeing a lot of supporters come off the sidelines and want to join the president in a second term”
