Ice Cube: ‘Donald Trump Is What Americans Aspire to Be’
Ice Cube likened GOP candidate Donald Trump to the “American dream” during a sit-down with Bloomberg.
“Donald Trump is what Americans love. Donald Trump is what Americans aspire to be — rich, powerful, do what you wanna do, say what you wanna say, be how you wanna be,” the rapper-actor said about Trump’s appeal.
“That’s kind of been like the American dream. He looks like a boss to everybody, and Americans love to have a boss.”
Ice Cube then clarified his remarks, saying, “Do I think he’s gonna do anything to help poor people or people that’s struggling? No, because he’s a rich white guy.”
He explained Trump’s wealth would make it difficult for the presidential hopeful to “relate to the small guy.”
“He’s always been rich,” the rapper said. “Being rich don’t make you bad, I ain’t saying that. But I’m just saying, how can he relate?”
