‘Hey y’all, I just want to remind you because it’s been a little bit over three weeks, okay!? It’s been a little bit over three weeks, Trump is now ordering… federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid!’
Cardi found the reason behind the shutdown unacceptable, and said there was a big difference between the current shutdown and the one which occurred in 2013 during the Obama administration.
‘Now, I don’t want to hear y’all motherf**kers talking about, “Oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days.” Yeah b**ch! For healthcare!
‘So your grandma can check her blood pressure, and you b*tches can go check your p*ssy at the gynecologist with no motherf**king problem!’

Though she admitted she wasn’t qualified to lead a movement, she urged fans to ‘take some action’ in light of the current events.
She also expressed serious concerns about the state of the country, calling it ‘in a hell hole.’
‘Now, I know a lot of you don’t care because y’all don’t work for the government or y’all probably don’t even have a job, but this s**t is really f**king serious, bro. This s**t is crazy. Like our country is in a hell hole right now, all for a f**king wall.

‘We really need to take this serious, I feel like we need to take some action, I don’t know what type of action b*tch ’cause this is not what I do, but b*tch I’m scared.
‘This is crazy, and I really feel bad for these people that got to go to f**king work to not get motherf**king paid.’
Not long after posting the video, the hashtag ‘Cardi B 2020’ gained traction on Twitter, with numerous fans posting the clip the website.

Cardi did not shy away from expressing her feelings about the president and his policies in a separate rant posted to her Instagram Live stories this week.
‘You promised these f**king racist rednecks that you was gonna build the wall, but you know that was impossible, but they voted for you and you promised them this s**t so, now you have to do it.’
She also called the president a ‘clout chaser’.
‘Trump is like a clout chaser. He’s like one of these new rap artists: They follow, they do the most for clout. And Trump wants that. Some people can have money, some people can have all the money in the world, all the power in the world, but they really want that fame.’
‘His legacy, he wants to go down as that bad person. You see the s**t he pulled on Christmas and New Years? He loves to interrupt the peace.’
‘Trump has begged… I be knowing ’cause y’all not in the scene. Trump wants to be cool with basketball teams, football teams and black people. He want to be cool with them. He wants validation from what’s popping right now.’
