Cardi B does not support Donald Trump, his idea to build a wall, or his refusal to pay federal workers — so she's asking her fans to take action.
The "Money" rapper took to Instagram Wednesday (January 16) to slam the Commander-In-Chief and his administration's recent decision to summon thousands of federal employees back to work without pay amid the longest government shutdown in U.S. History.
"Trump is now ordering — as in summonsing — federal government workers to go back to work without getting paid," Cardi said in the video. "Now I don't wanna hear you mohterf**kas talkin' about, 'Oh, but [Barack] Obama shut down the government for 17 days.' Yeah, b**ch! For health care! So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you b***hes could go check your p***y at the gynecologist with no motherf**kin' problem."
"Now, I know a lot of y’all don’t care because y’all don’t work for the government or y’all probably have a job. This sh*t is really f**king serious, bro, This sh*t is crazy," she continued. "Like, our country is in a hell hole right now— all for a f**kin' wall. Cardi then called upon her fans to take some kind of action. "I feel like we need to take some action. I dont' know what type of action, b***h, because this is not what I do. But, b***h, I'm scared," she admitted. "This is crazy and I really feel bad for these people who gotta go to f---ing work to not get motherf**king paid."

Cardi shared the Trump-bashing video to her Instagram shortly after she went on similar Trump-targeted rant on Instagram Live. "You promised these f**king racist rednecks that you was gonna build the wall, but you know that was impossible," Cardi said. "But they voted for you and you promised them this shit so now you have to do it [...] 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."
