After receiving heavy criticism for being in contact with the Trump 2020 campaign, Ice Cube sat down with Hot 97 to clarify his thoughts.
In the interview he denied supporting Donald Trump and discussed white supremacy on “both sides of the aisle.”
His words below:
On his support for Trump he said:
“I’m not supporting Donald Trump.”
On racism he said:
“White supremacy do turn me off, but it’s everywhere, and it’s on both sides of the aisle. That’s just the reality that we live in, and I’m not naive to that. We’re engulfed in white supremacy, so that’s just something we’re gonna have to fight our way out of.”
On working with Trump he said:
“f you really think that I was tricked, duped, or whatever…people spent their entire weekend breaking down Trump’s plan to people, trying to talk shit about me. And so, people gotta look at what they did to pump up the man’s plan. I never in my life said anything about his plan until I had to come out and defend the truth.”
The interview then went on to discuss how the N.W.A. rapper has voted in the past and how he plans to vote in the upcoming election.
