Rapper Cardi B slammed President Joe Biden after New York City announced a 5 percent budget cut to public services.
The former Biden advocate slammed the president in a 0-minute live session on Instagram, vowing to never endorse another aspiring president.
Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almánzar, responded to the news that y New York City Mayor Eric Adams would be cutting 5 percent from much-needed services in the Big Apple to deal with the migrant crisis.
The budget cut affects the following:
In a statement released on November 16, Adams said:
“For months, we have warned New Yorkers about the challenging fiscal situation our city faces.”
“To balance the budget as the law requires, every city agency dug into their own budget to find savings, with minimal disruption to services.
“And while we pulled it off this time, make no mistake: Migrant costs are going up, tax revenue growth is slowing, and COVID stimulus funding is drying up.”
“No city should be left to handle a national humanitarian crisis largely on its own, and without the significant and timely support we need from Washington, D.C., today’s budget will be only the beginning.”
Cardi B reacted angrily to the news on Instagram, saying:
“I’m an angry b**** right now… I need y’all to spread this video, and if something happens to me, it’s because I’m speaking the truth.”
“In New York, there is a $120 million budget cut in New York that’s going to affect schools, public libraries, and the police department,” she said.
“And a $5 million budget cut in sanitation,” she went on.
“B, we are going to be drowning in f** rats.”
