“A couple of weeks ago I asked my followers if you had the opportunity to have a question answered by a democratic candidate what would it be,” she added. “I got a lot of submission and selected the most popular questions to get answered.”
The rapper, born Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, continued, “Stay tuned to see how he will fight for economic, racial, and social justice for all. Together, let’s build a movement of young people to transform this country.LETS LEARN OUR CANDIDATES!”
“We (are) working on a way to involve more young people in the political process,” Sanders told CNN shortly before the shoot. “The future of America depends on young people. They are voting in large numbers, but not large enough numbers.”
According to the outlet:
He said he and Cardi B spoke about a range of issues, including canceling student debt, climate change and raising the minimum wage. The video — filmed at the TEN Nail Bar, a local nail salon owned by two black women — is the first collaboration between the duo.
Earlier this month, the “Press” rapper tweeted about Sanders and how she felt “we let him down in 2016.”
