Ice Cube Worked with Trump Administration on ‘Platinum Plan’ for Black America

Alex Heigl, Page Six, October 14, 2020

Ice Cube has apparently been working with the Trump Administration to develop something called the “Platinum Plan” for black Americans.


Cube, 51, seemed to try to get out in front of the news earlier in the week, posting a confessional-style video to Twitter Sunday titled “DON’T KILL THE MESSENGER.” {snip}


Cube does mention $500 billion as a sum earmarked by Republicans, and indeed, the “Platinum Plan” quotes “President Trump’s promise to black America over 4 years” as “increase access to capital in black communities by almost $500 billion.”

Twitter is apparently not having the news, with one user dredging up a tweet from Cube in August 2016 that reads, “I will never endorse a mothaf–ka like Donald Trump! EVER!!!”


{snip}… Ice Cube’s team referred us back to this tweet, in which the rapper claims that Democrats promised to address Cube’s Contract With Black America — published in July — “after the election,” while Republicans “made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us.”
