Cardi B says she's filing for Nigerian citizenship after Trump's move against Iran
Cardi B has announced that she is filing for Nigerian citizenship after Trump's move against Iran.
The 27-year-old rapper made the revelation on Twitter days after the President of the United States ordered an airstrike which killed General Qasem Soleimani - a move that signified increased hostility between Washington and Tehran, as per the BBC, and prompted Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei to state that "severe revenge awaits the criminals" responsible.
In the video below, Cardi B encourages social media users to learn more about democratic candidates:
"Naaaaa these memes are f***in but s**t ain't no joke! ... Specially being from New York," Cardi B, whose full name is Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, wrote on Friday.
She continued: "Its [sic] sad this man is putting Americans live in danger.Dumbest move Trump did till date ...I'm filing for my Nigerian citizenship."
The Pentagon announces that a US airstrike has killed a powerful Iranian general:
Shortly after Soleimani's death, Iraqi parliament has voted in favor of expelling US troops, and today, 176 people lost their lives when an Iranian plane crashed, with no cause of the incident yet confirmed, as per the BBC, causing some to speculate that the incident was a deliberate retaliation - like the striking of US bases in the country - for Trump's actions.
Nigerian official Abike Dabiri-Erewa welcomed the singer potentially moving to the country, writing: "We can't wait to receive you again. Our doors are open, sister."
This is not, however, the first time that the rapper has gotten political on social media. Last year, she took to Instagram "to influence our youth to get educated when it comes to our Democratic candidates."
Three British citizens were among those killed by the plane crash in Iran:
She continued: "You see the Republicans, they are afraid to stand up to Trump, because he might take their positions away from them, but the Democrats, they just don't give a f***,' she said. 'And my thing is, right, that we get distracted with people putting Trump on blast, like CNN constantly putting Trump on blast on the s**t he has been committing in this country, because he puts things on Twitter that distract us from all the bulls*** that he's actually been doing."
On that note, following the death of General Qasem Soleimani, Trump simply tweeted a pixelated image of the American flag.
