Here's Why 50 Cent Says Donald Trump Bribed Him With $500,000
To practically no one’s surprise at this point, controversies surrounding Donald Trump have become as routine as his tweeting.
And though he spent much of his presidential campaign hurling accusations at his former opponent Hilary Clinton, he apparently spent the other portion attempting to buy his way into the White House. At least, that's how rap, business and entertainment magnate 50 Cent, who revealed that Trump offered him $500,000 to help him reel in Black voters, remembers it.
Fif dropped in on Hot 97’s Ebro in the Morning to chop things up about his new BET undertaking 50 Central and arrived at some political talk toward the end of the conversation.
He first shared his thoughts on how he believes things have been operating over at the White House, which he believes Trump is blindly running because of his autocratic attitude. Fif would know, though, considering that he said Trump’s team attempted to bribe him with the whopping amount when they struggled to secure the “African-American vote.”
“They asked me, before he got elected,” he said. “They was having issues with the African-American vote. He wanted to pay me $500,000 as part of the campaign to just make an appearance.”
With a sound mind, Fif said he rejected the offer because he knew it wouldn’t have been worth it, not to mention the toll it’d take on his own reputation. The Power super-executive iterated his previous sentiments about Trump’s presidential style during his appearance on The View as well. He believes that if he were as clueless as Trump and became president “by accident,” he might conduct things similarly to how the former reality television star does. But when co-host Joy Behar reminded him that Trump does, in fact, have a team over at the White House that he (apparently) refuses to abide by, Fif offers up what many have been pleading for the past nine months: dump Trump.
“Then we gotta get rid of him,” he declared.
It's a stronger statement than any of the ones Trump has made about anything in the past few months.
