The Western Journal reports that rapper/actor Ice Cube, whose legal name is O’Shea Jackson Jr., is teamed up with President Trump to economically empower African-Americans with what they call a “Platinum Plan.”

“So @icecube has officially given the Trump campaign permission to reveal that he has been helping us develop President Trump’s groundbreaking black Trump platform: The Platinum Plan!” tweeted Black Conservative Federation founder Diante Johnson, who also serves as a Black Voices for Trump advisory board member.

“Leaders gonna lead, haters gonna hate. Thank you for leading,” Trump campaign senior adviser Katrina Pierson added.

“Pres. @realDonaldTrump is an inspirational leader and it’s great to see more seemingly unlikely allies like @icecube willing to work w/ him to #MAGA for everyone!”

“Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me,” he tweeted Wednesday. “Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.”

“Instead of looking for incremental reform, the Contract with Black America tries to address the root causes of racism in our society and develop a roadmap for a comprehensive solution,” Ice Cube wrote in an Op-Ed for The Hill.

“Beyond the obvious, we need to focus on the areas of banking and finance, justice, policing, education, Hollywood depictions, as well as a system of reparations. None of these work in isolation, this plan looks at the systemic core of racism as a whole, and only in that way can a true solution be born.”

“The objective is not handouts to assuage white guilt, nor do we want White’s equality diminished either,” Ice Cube continued.

“We need [Whites] to look within and be honest about how they benefit from white privilege, and always will, unless our society reimagines what America should have looked like in the beginning and does the hard work of reform to get our country where it should be.”

More from The Western Journal:

The Platinum Plan is a $500 billion initiative aimed at bringing 3 million new jobs to the black community and helping create 500,000 new black-owned businesses. It also calls for universal school choice and criminal justice reform.

Black conservative commentators Lynnette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson — better known by their stage names, Diamond and Silk — explained on a recent episode of The Western Journal’s podcast “WJ Live” why they chose to support Trump.

The Platinum Plan does not call for reparations, but it does build on some of the major Trump accomplishments for African-Americans during his first term, including the lowest unemployment rate ever recorded, funding for historically black colleges and universities, opportunity zones and criminal justice reform.

Though Democrats consistently try to label Trump a racist, the truth is his record in support of black America is the strongest of any president going back to the Civil Rights era of the 1960s.
