Cardi B has broadcasted her feelings about various topics, but now she is sitting down and getting political. The rapper shared a photo of herself with 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders sharing that the two met up to talk.
According to CNN, the two teamed up to film a campaign video for young voters. They discussed issues such as student debt, climate change, and minimum wage. Here is the post that she put on Instagram:

Not me, US. Thank you Senator Bernie Sanders for sitting with me and sharing your plans on how you will change this country. A couple of weeks ago I asked my followers if you had the opportunity to have a question answered by a democratic candidate what would it be ? I got a lot of submission and selected the most popular questions to get answered. Stay tuned to see how he will fight for economic, racial, and social justice for all. Together, let’s build a movement of young people to transform this country.LETS LEARN OUR CANDIDATES!
Cardi B asked her followers to give her questions they would ask a democratic candidate and she selected the most popular questions to get answered. Cardi shared that their talk will be released shortly.
Sanders also posted pictures of the meeting to his social media accounts:
Today @iamcardib and I finally met. We had a great conversation about the future of America.
And let me tell you: Cardi B is right.
Together, we’ll get millions of young people involved in the political process and transform this country. Stay tuned for our video coming soon! pic.twitter.com/L9mQ8InMZu

Wondering how this random meeting came about? Earlier this month the rapper tweeted about the Vermont senator:
I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I’m really sad how we let him down in 2016 This man been fighting for equal rights,HUMAN rights for such along time.Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign.

This isn’t the first time Cardi has been vocal about her political views, reacting to multiple situations this past year. She said “I love government. I’m obsessed with presidents. I’m obsessed to know how the system works,” also adding that one of her favorite presidents was Franklin D. Roosevelt.
It looks like we don’t give Cardi B enough credit for being an influential figure for change. This video with Bernie Sanders can change some views for young voters and encourage them to be more educated about who the candidates are. Looks like we know who Cardi is standing by during this presidential race.
