Cardi B Slams Donald Trump Over Government Shutdown and Border Wall

In a profanity-laced tirade, rapper and video actress Cardi B blew up at President Donald Trump, slamming him for his stubborn desire to build a wall separating the United States and Mexico.

Trump's wall is at the center of a controversial, historic 26-day government shut-down. Trump's campaign refrain and subsequent blaming of Democrats in Congress for not agreeing to pay for the $5.7 billion wall remains at the core of his presidential goals –— whether or not his theoretical "security crisis at the southern border" exists, as the Washington Post reported.

Seemingly referring to the people who voted for Trump and attended his feverish rallies pre-election and during his tenure so far, Cardi B posted on Instagram Live, calling out Trump for lying about something he couldn't accomplish.

"You promised these f---ing racist rednecks that you was gonna build the wall, but you know that was impossible," Cardi B told her fans, as The Hill reported Wednesday. "But they voted for you and you promised them this shit so now you have to do it."

Calling Trump a 'clout chaser," Cardi B mocked him, likening him to wannabe rappers: "He's like one of these new rap artists — they follow, they do the most for clout. And Trump wants that."

On a roll, the 26-year-old seemed to understand Trump's relentless thirst for attention and applause — from his perch in the White House, the private board room or via his former reality show, The Apprentice, a boss-versus-minion microcosm of how he filters the world around him — no matter the issue, public or private.

"Some people can have money, all the power in the world, but they really want that fame," Cardi B said via Instagram Live. "His legacy — he wants to go down as that bad person."

Furthermore, she castigated Trump for wanting to "be cool with basketball teams, football teams and black people" and for seeking validation for whatever is the current trend.

Even as Trump continues to bombard Congress, insisting that he has the power to continue the shutdown if politicians refuse to fund the wall, his claims do not match the facts, the Post reported after his address to the nation on January 9.

For example, contrary to Trump's continued blanketed assertion that a "security crisis at the southern border" exists, the number of people caught trying to illegally cross the border is actually near 20-year lows.

Also, even as his administration said hundreds of people, on average, allegedly crossed the border daily in 2018, Trump claimed that border agents "encounter thousands of illegal immigrants trying to enter our country" on a daily basis.

In the same speech, Trump claimed that 90 percent of the heroin in the United States enters across the Mexican border. However, the fact remains that most of the drugs are smuggled through legal entry points and would not be halted by a border wall, as the Post reported.

Perhaps outspoken, no-holds-barred musical and pop culture stars like Cardi B have particular savvy insight into the commander-in-chief.

"He loves to interrupt the peace," Cardi B summarized.

Born Belcalis Almanzar and nicknamed Bacardi, the rapper eventually shorted it to Cardi, her stage name.
