“Just had a great meeting with @realdonaldtrump @potus besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership,” the rapper tweeted.

“He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”

The Trump administration’s Platinum Plan aims at investing $500 million into black communities and winning support from them.

It was developed with the help of rapper Ice Cube and entails expanding economic initiatives boosting the black community, making Juneteenth a federal holiday and prosecuting the Antifa and Ku Klux Klan as terrorist groups.

Ice Cube said he worked with the Trump administration because blacks represent 13 percent of the country but are getting just .5 percent of the wealth and “they listened, heard what I had to say, pumped up their plan and presented it to the people.”

Lil Wayne is the latest of a number of black celebrities who have come out in support of Trump. 

Last week, rapper 50 Cent stated that he would get behind Trump because he did not want to become “20 Cent” under Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s tax plan that proposes to raise taxes on the rich. 

However, 50 Cent then appeared to backtrack on his pro-Trump stance, tweeting, “f*** Donald Trump. I never liked him.”

On Thursday after seeing Lil Wayne’s photo with Trump, 50 Cent tweeted, “Oh no WAYNE, I WOULD HAVE NEVER TOOK THIS PICTURE.”

Rapper Kanye West was the first major artist in the genre to voice support for Trump and met with him in the Oval Office in 2018. 

However, West ended up making a long-shot bid for president. 

Another rapper who is on Trump’s side is Lil Pump. 

On his Instagram story, Lil Pump said, “Trump 2020” and “F*** I look like paying an extra 33 in taxes for Biden.” 

Lil Pump also used Trump’s nickname for Biden in saying, “F*** Sleepy Joe.”
