Rapper Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., better known by his stage name Lil Wayne, announced his support for President Donald Trump on Thursday.
Carter tweeted that he had a “great meeting” with the president.
“Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” the rapper continued.
“He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
