Top White House adviser Jared Kushner revealed details about a meeting he had with rap legend Ice Cube concerning black economic empowerment, as the Trump administration works to earn the support of black voters.
The comments come amid a number of hip-hop artists coming out in support of lower taxes and throwing their weight behind President Trump’s re-election.
In an interview on “Fox & Friends” Monday, Kushner was asked about the recent meeting he had with Ice Cube, where they discussed the Trump administration’s “Platinum Plan,” a policy aimed at winning over black Americans.
“I’m a big believer in iron sharpens iron. It was a really in-depth and respectful policy discussion. There were some things we didn’t agree on. But there were a lot of things we did agree on. I think he helped make our plan better. And we appreciated it,” Kushner said.
He said he and Cube, whose real name is O’Shea Jackson, walked through some of the president’s accomplishments, including criminal justice reform, creating opportunity zones and funding HBCUs. “And then we took him through a lot of the different plans that we had for what President Trump could do in the next four years,” Kushner said.
The Biden campaign pushed off meeting with Ice Cube until after Election Day, but Kushner met with him for three hours.
“They listened, heard what I had to say and pumped up their plan and presented it to the people,” Ice Cube said Sunday.
