Ice Cube On defensive AGAIN As Roland Martin Blast Him Over Trump “Platinum Plan”

Ice Cube is striking back at ‘SELLOUT’ Label {VIDEO}

Ice Cube is once again on the defensive as Roland Smith attacks him for working with Trump.

Ice Cube is tired of being blamed for endorsing President Donald Trump for presenting his plan, called the Platinum Plan. The plan was supposed to focus on ways to give African Americans a fair chance at being prosperous and to help stop the race from being targeted by law enforcement and other groups.

Since Ice Cube met with the Trump administration, he’s faced large scale criticism from the black community and has had to defend himself on a regular basis. On October 14, he tried to explain via Twitter that he was only concerned about the welfare of black people and that they would be treated better and not which political party puts the plan in place. He said: “Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me. Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.”

Fans were not convinced and continue to drag the iconic rapper for supporting the Trump administration, which has been accused of several instances of racism since taking office. The Black Lives Matter’s ideology is based on their belief that the administration does nothing to alleviate the circumstances of blacks, including the violence meted out to them. Recently, they used the murder of George Floyd and Breona Taylor to support their theory.

Again on October 14th, Cube defended himself as he tried to reason with fans. His angle was that there are no good sides in the US and what matters most is action for black people. He said: “Every side is the Darkside for us here in America. They’re all the same until something changes for us. They all lie and they all cheat but we can’t afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change. Our justice is bipartisan.”

On October 30, he stated: “The government is only one aspect of the CWBA. We plan to challenge the private sector and we also have legal arguments for the courts. We’re fighting on all fronts for a long time till we get our piece of the pie.”

His reasoning is not sitting well with fans and analysts. One of his detractors, renowned reporter Roland Martin, once again called out the rapper for his perceived alliance with Donald Trump.

Martin shared his thoughts on the matter, including that he believed Cube had been conned. His comments came after Cube posted this statement on Twitter: “Let me get this straight, I get the president of the United States to agree to put over half a trillion dollars of capital in the Black Community (without an endorsement) and Ni**as are mad at me? Face with tears of joyFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy…have a nice life.”

Here are a few of Martin’s responses to that statement:

“The only problem @icecube is that you didn’t get Trump to put $500 billion of capital in Black communities. It’s a lie. It’s ONE LINE on the cover sheet of his so-called Platinum Plan. No specifics. NOTHING. Bruh, you got played. ”

“Why do I know you got played @icecube? I’ve talked to numerous Black Republicans who currently work with the administration and THEY said the $500 billion “commitment” is a joke. You’re just wrong, bruh. 2/2”

“Come on @icecube, you at least gotta give Black folks enough credit to know that we know when we are getting played. All Jared and Trump wanted was to be able to say you co-signed the plan. They got exactly what they wanted. What did we get? A one sheet plan of nothing. 5/10.”

“Look @icecube, I get your intentions. But all of the data – lack of ANY endorsement by top Black REPUBLICAN business leaders and NO outreach to ANY Black media outlets – proves that $500 billion commitment is as trusted as Trump’s wedding vows. They are worthless. 10/10”


'How do you go from NWA to MAGA?': Fans blast Ice Cube as a 'sell-out' and 'hypocrite' after the Trump campaign revealed he has been working alongside the President {VIDEO}

In the aftermath of catching all kinds of heat for hooking up with Donald Trump on his so-called “Platinum Plan” for Black America, Ice Cube is striking back with a defiant tweet.

“When I got [the] bus to school. Homies called me a sellout. When I started rapping in 1983. Bangers called me a sellout,” Cube (above) wrote. “When I left NWA. They called me a sellout. When I start doing movies. Rappers called me a sellout. When I started my own [3-on-3 basketball] league. The arena said it was a sellout.”


Ice Cube has coughed up an explanation why he’s working with the Trump campaign after getting heavy backlash on Twitter.

In our lifetimes, there has perhaps existed no other president who has stoked racial divisions and earned the support of white supremacists as much or as often as Donald Trump. However, it seems this behavior did not stop Ice Cube from getting involved with the Trump campaign to help build a platform based on a series of promises to attract the support of Black Americans. On Tuesday, Trump advisor Katrina Pierson thanked the West Coast icon on Twitter, writing, “Shoutout to @icecube for his willingness to step up and work with @realDonaldTrump Administration to help develop the #PlatinumPlan.”

According to multiple sources, the plan Pierson is referring to is a new Trump platform supposedly aimed at addressing the needs and concerns of Black people in America.

Ice Cube quickly confirmed his involvement, tweeting, “Facts: I put out the CWBA.” Cube went on to explain that he was in talks with both parties about their commitment to the so-called “Contract with Black America,” drafted by Cube himself, who explained that the Democrats promised to discuss the plan after the election, while the Trump campaign was willing to make immediate adjustments to their platform.

The West Coast rap icon has been known to withhold his support for Democratic politicians in the past, arguing that neither party has proven that they are genuinely looking out for the good of Black communities in America.

While Ice Cube’s skepticism is more than justified, his public willingness to work with the Trump campaign will undoubtedly be used as “evidence” that the Trump administration is not racist, despite the perpetuation of racist policies and dog whistle rhetoric that consistently empowers white supremacists. Critics have called the move irresponsible, suggesting that Cube’s actions will be misconstrued as an endorsement and may influence the many hip hop fans that idolize him. Additionally, those who have paid attention to the words and actions of the Trump administration know that a promise coming from such a corrupt organization means little to nothing in terms of concrete change.

Mr 1' dick meet to my face and call me a N, ass, and see how fast I end your racist b**** ass. Who I vote for is no one's business. The black community don't need handouts, Trump, is only using that fool, of the Republicans only want to give $500. Bill, to help they country, where is Trump, going to get $500. Bill, to help the black community? A******. It has to go thru the senate, and the will not ok it. Black people will never get $500. Bill, because every other group will ask for their share, white people would be pissed. All Ice cube, was look like an idiot, trying to pimp both sides, unfortunately the white house use his name to try and get black voters b****. Why don't talk about the black billionaire, who paid for all the students tuition at Howard University, and all of a sudden the I.RS. is freezing his money about him hiding assets, and not paying taxes, but if it was a white billionaire, it would be no problem. White people donate money to white colleges all the time, nothing new, but as soon as a black man does it he get investigated for not paying taxes, and hiding assets, why wait until he start helping black people. But the crooked president lol, at I.R.S. you need to STFU, and go back under the rock where you came from you racist white troll.

vaughn mitchell and since your n***** ass is so smart and know so much that the white house would never give $500 billion dollars to the black community, why not list the amount nog money the democrats have give to the black community strictly for the black community that comes close tk $500 billion dollars over the years, the dame party who could never discuss reparation, in fact what did Joe Biden said in 1972 a month after he became a freshman senator? While youre the smart one who went to a black college, lets hear it from you, educate the audience for get about me, you can call me what ever you want after to help educate the public with the information, since you are so black and concern about black people lets hear it, if you cannot do that much than you are a fraud on welfare in the community, lets hear what you stand for and how you have contribute to the community

@ D. Hall, I have been going after that Ratchet , I dick, for a minute. He is a white racist to use the black power sign , to make believe he is black. Uses the N, word every chance he get to put down black people. As for ice cube, he lost all street cred, he lost respect, he will always be known as a sellout. The Trump, campaign made sure to tell everyone that he was working with them to throw him under the bus. Did he really think The whitehouse was going to give the black community $500. Billion, is he that stupid. He think he can pimp both sides instead he look and sound like a dumb coon, a rapper with no education. Black people don't need $500. Billion, they want the cops to stop shooting and killing black men. They want fair housing, jobs, and use money to fix up the hood. Not give us handouts.

Otherwise n***** stop wining, no one cares if youre happy the way life is going be happy, why worry about people like Ice Cube, he sure aint worry about you, worry about where Steve Harvey will be giving out free turkey this year like Nino from New Jack City lol, you silly niggers, you have those greety negros selling you out and you complaining about Ice Cube how you have a leader but he is too good to live im your district lol where do Sharpton lives, how about steve harvey?
