The MC, who is dipping into the political narrative with her support of Sen. Bernie Sanders, is being asked to step up to the mic by one of the nation’s best known Black conservatives

 

Cardi B, whose political voice has been rising as has her fame in the rap industry, has been challenged to a debate with Black Trump supporter and conservative activist, Candace Owens, after the rapper recently endorsed Democratic Sen. Bernie Sanders for president in the 2020 election.

Owens took to Twitter on Monday to offer Cardi B $250,000 to debate either her or another Black conservative of her choice, according to Newsweek

PLEASE RETWEET. I see that @iamcardib is politically advocating for Bernie Sanders with claims that Trump is bad. I would like publicly offer 250k to a political campaign of her choosing if she will publicly debate her stance with either myself or ANY black conservative I choose.

This news comes soon after the “I Like It” rapper took to social media on Monday and revealed that she spoke with the Vermont senator to discuss questions she received from her fans to ask Sanders. A few weeks ago she revealed how she felt “really sad how we let him down in 2016.”

In response to Owens, who started the “Blexit” movement — or Black Exit from the Democratic party — Cardi called her out on Twitter:

Why don’t you use that 250k for a charity that will be more helpful.I like Bernie because since the 60s he’s been fighting for http://equality.It  looks like progression is really his passion.I still want to ask other candidates questions that my followers would like to know. https://twitter.com/realcandaceo/status/1156017294742417408

This ignited a Twitter back and forth of sorts with Cardi immersing herself into the current political narrative — just in time for the second round of Democratic debates on Tuesday night, where Sanders will take the stage.

Owens later cleared up her statement stating that she initially meant that the money would go to the charity that the rapper chooses.
