Speaking out: Cardi B spoke to presidential hopeful Joe Biden about college education, police brutality and the COVID-19 response in her cover story
Cadi B said: ‘I just want Trump out. His mouth gets us in trouble so much. I don’t want to be lied to – we’re dealing with a pandemic right now, and I just want answers. I want to know when this will be over. I want to go back to my job.’
The mother of one said of Trump in office: ‘I don’t want someone to lie to me and tell me it’s okay not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be okay.’
Adding: ‘I want a president to tell me what the steps are for us to get better, to tell me, “This is why it is taking so long, this is why other countries are doing better than ours.” Tell me the truth, the hard-core truth.’
Cardi, born Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, continued: ‘Also what I want is free Medicare. It’s important to have free [healthcare] because look what is happening right now. Of course, I think we need free college. And I want Black people to stop getting killed and no justice for it. I’m tired of it. I’m sick of it.’

The artist said she ‘wants laws that are far to Black citizens and that are fair for cops, too. If you kill somebody who doesn’t have a weapon on them, you go to jail. You know what? If I kill somebody, I’ve got to go to jail. You gotta go to jail, too. That’s what I want.’
Joe said: ‘There’s no reason why we can’t have all of that. Presidents have to take responsibility. I understand one of your favorite presidents is Franklin Roosevelt. Roosevelt said the American people can take anything if you tell them the truth.’
Adding: ‘Sometimes the truth is hard. But right now, we’re in a position where we have an opportunity to make so much progress, The American public has had the blinders taken off.’

Cardi talked about President Trump, noting that he is ‘really confusing everyone. One day he’s telling them this is nothing, that people need to stop getting tested. Next thing you know, [he has] a mask [on his] face. [He’s] really playing games.’
‘And it’s crazy that all of this had to happen so they could open their eyes to the past four years.’
Joe said that her generation of voters is key in the election this year, since in 2016 if 18-to-24 year-olds had voted in the same percentage as the rest of the population, there would have been 5.2M more votes.
‘We wouldn’t have [Trump]; we would have had Hilary Clinton. The vote matters.’
Cardi said: ‘Nobody is more motivated than a mom. Nobody wants to go hustle out there and get the money for the kid like a mother,’ when talking about childcare and after-school programs.
The singer said: ‘I feel like this country is so hurt, to the point that this year, a lot of people couldn’t even celebrate July 4th, because not everybody feels like an American. A lot of people feel like [they’re] not even part of America.’
‘I feel like Black people, we’re not asking for sympathy, we’re not asking for charity – we are just asking for equality. We are asking for fairness, and we are asking for justice. That is all. I fell like everything people are asking for is getting interpreted in a very different way. No, it’s simple: We just want justice. We want to feel like Americans.’

Joe said that if he gets elected, ‘anybody with a family [that makes] less than 125 grand, you’re going to get free education. And everybody gets free community college.’
She spoke about how she wasn’t able to afford to feed herself when she went Borough of Manhattan Community College and had to make sure she had $5 every day for transportation to school.
In middle school and high school, she said they gave a free MetroCard and a free lunch.
During college, ‘sometimes I had to wait from 1 pm all the way to 9 pm to get home and eat. Because I couldn’t afford McDonald’s or any restaurants on my break. I was starving, and I felt so discouraged. So I just feel like that is so important, to finance students while they’re in college.’
Before signing off, Joe, who said ‘no corporation should pay less than 15 percent tax,’ noted ‘I’m make mistakes as president, but I’ll admit to the mistakes I make, and you’re never going to have to wonder whether I’ll keep my word.’
He added: ‘Just check me out; I’ve never broken my word. Never in my life.’
