“I think I want to be a politician,” Cardi B wrote. “I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Goverment [sic].”

“Like I was watching War documentaries,” she added, without explaining which ones she was watching. “No matter how many weapons a country have you need people!”

“How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American,” the “Hustlers” star continued. “I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress. I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school and I can shake the table.”

As previously reported, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper has made it clear in the past she is not a fan of President Donald Trump. She has thrown her support behind Bernie Sanders in the 2020 race.
