Cardi B Slams President Biden for U.S. Involvement in Israel-Hamas War

Cardi B is deeply unhappy with the state of political affairs, inside and out of the United States. And in a new Rolling Stone cover story published Thursday (May 6), the rapper goes as far as denouncing President Joe Biden for his administration’s involvement in the ongoing Israel-Hamas war, as well as the issues she sees happening here at home.

While addressing America’s ongoing financial aid to the Israeli military, as well as Ukraine’s military efforts against Russia, Cardi told the publication, “[America] don’t pay for endless wars for countries that have been going through s–t for a very long time.” 

“There’s countries [where] kids are getting killed every single day, but because the [U.S.] won’t benefit from that country, they won’t help,” she continued. “I don’t like that America has this superhero cape on. We never did things to be superheroes. We did things for our own convenience.” 

Since Hamas terrorists attacked Israel on Oct. 7 – taking about 250 hostages and killing an estimated 1,200 – Israel and Hamas have been engaged in a deadly war. According to the Associated Press, more than 34,500 Palestinians have been killed, while ABC News reports that an estimated 1,700 people in Israel have been killed. Reuters reported on May 14 that Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al-Thani had said talks of a ceasefire in Gaza had reached a stalemate due to Israel’s operations in Rafah. 

As for average Americans’ economic struggles on the home front, the “WAP” rapper says she feels “layers and layers of disappointment” about Biden’s inaction. “I feel like people got betrayed,” she said. “It’s just like, ‘Damn, y’all not caring about nobody.’ Then, it really gets me upset that there is solutions to it. There is a solution. I know there’s a solution because you’re spending billions of dollars on any f–king thing.” 

The interview comes just six months ahead of the 2024 presidential election, during which Biden will once again run against the twice-impeached former president Donald Trump. Leading up to the former’s victory against the latter in 2020, Cardi both interviewed and endorsed the current POTUS, telling SiriusXM at the time, “It’s either we go with Joe Biden or Donald Trump … I have spoken to Joe Biden before. I think he gets it. I don’t know if it’s sympathize, but I think that he understands what we want. I think he understands that what we want are simple things.” 

But now? “I don’t f–k with both of y’all n—-s,” she said of Biden and Trump.
