50 Cent Urges America to 'Vote for Trump' as He Flips on Democrats: 'I'm OUT'
Rapper endorses president for re-election while slamming Joe Biden's tax hikes
Rapper 50 Cent has endorsed the president for re-election and is calling on America to "vote for Trump" after dumping the Democrats over Joe Biden's proposed tax hikes.
The 45-year-old star tweeted a shot of the tax rates proposed by Democratic nominee Joe Biden and vice-presidential running mate Kamala Harris.
Biden's tax proposals could see those earning more than $400,000 a year hit with rates of 62.6 percent for those who live in California and 62 percent for New York City residents.
The hip-hop artist-turned-actor said on Twitter: "WHAT THE F***! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT.
"F*** NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway," he added.
The music mogul -- born Curtis James Jackson III -- shared an image from what appeared to be a news broadcast, displaying the "top tax rates by state under [the] Biden tax plan."
The post garnered a great deal of support for the incumbent candidate, according to Fox News.
Shortly after, he shared another post, seemingly to joke about his earnings.
"I just remembered i’m bankrupt, so i’m looking for a gracious loan can anyone help a brother out. LOL," he wrote alongside a photo of himself smiling.
He capped off the post by adding two hashtags to represent the alcohol brands he owns: "#bransoncognac #lecheminduroi."
Also an actor and businessman, Jackson was born in Queens and is worth at least $110 million, as Forbes reported in 2012.
50 Cent joins a long list of Trump supporters, including Kirstie Alley, who recently voiced support for the President, citing his lack of politics as reasoning for her backing.
I’m voting for @realDonaldTrump because he’s NOT a politician. I voted for him 4 years ago for this reason and shall vote for him again for this reason. He gets things done quickly and he will turn the economy around quickly. There you have it folks there you have it🙄— Kirstie Alley (@kirstiealley) October 17, 2020
