A few weeks ago, Cube suggested that he was communicating with Biden and Trump's campaigns, pitching his Contract With Black America and pledging his support to whichever side employed it in their campaigns.

On Tuesday, Trump senior advisor Katrina Pierson announced that the N.W.A rapper was working with the White House.

"Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate. Thank you for leading!" She followed up the tweet with a GIF of the rapper smiling with the caption "today was a good day", in reference to his legendary hit song.

A rep for Cube tells Rolling Stone that he offered to meet with both the Trump and Biden campaigns to discuss an "agenda for Black Americans" and support for his Contract With Black America (CWBA). Author Roxane Gay shared on the social media platform disappointment in the news writing, "How... does the guy from NWA become MAGA?" after questioning if money was involved.

Rapper Ice Cube is no stranger to controversy. But he also described Fauci, who has served in administrations of both parties, as a Democrat.

He said in a tweet: 'Facts: I put out the CWBA. "It was made to be perfected and debate".

According to Al.com , "Saban has been careful with mask usage in public since the season began". That would be the greatest concern that I have.

We applaud Ice Cube for putting politics aside and working with Trump to do something that will help his community.

After writing that she has dissociated herself from her father by forging an identity in the arts separate from her last name, Giuliani argued that "none of us can afford to be silent right now" when "the stakes are too high". I do know they are very much against paedophilia. "And I don't know if it really matters to us". "We gotta just push whoever's in there 'cuz there's nobody who's really solved our problems".

Black people criticizing @icecube for actually helping black people is why we haven't had nice things. When we created the Contract With Black America we expected to talk to both sides of the isle. "This Contract with Black America will provide conceptual approaches in several areas", including prison, police, and judicial reform, as well as financial lending reform.

"Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA", he added.

Trump's attacks come after he used Fauci's words out of context in a Trump campaign ad, without his permission.

The President's appearance in North Carolina underscores the challenge confronting him in the final weeks of the election as multiple polls have shown Trump trailing Biden nationally and in many swing states.
