Rapper 50 Cent has come out against New York City Mayor Eric Adams’s decision to hand over $53 million in food money directly to the migrants flooding the city, admitting that former President Donald Trump might be the answer.
“WTF mayor Adams call my phone, I don’t understand how this works 🤷🏽♂️somebody explain,” he wrote in an Instagram post.
The rapper added:
“Maybe TRUMP is the answer.”
The $53 million program will begin with a group of 500 migrants staying at the Roosevelt Hotel, which is being used as a migrant center.
The New York Post reported that it will place the existing food service offered there.
Migrants are required to sign forms promising to use the prepaid cards only for food or baby supplies.
The cards are designed to be used at grocery stores, supermarkets, and convenience stores in the city.
The outlet added:
“The Immediate Response Card initiative appears akin to the state’s food stamp program, dubbed SNAP, which provides lower-income New Yorkers with a credit card to cover the cost of meals, and will provide funds based on the same scale.”
“The amount on each card will vary depending on the size of the family and whether any income is coming in, according to the details of the contract,” the Post noted.
A family of four could get $1,000 a month, and the money on the cars would be refilled every 28 days.
According to the city, the program could supposedly cut the costs of feeding the migrants by $600,000 per month.
This isn’t the first time 50 Cent has endorsed Trump.
Before the 2020 election, the rapper said that Joe Biden’s tax plan had driven him to endorse Trump.
However, he recanted that endorsement within days.
Fellow rapper Snoop Dogg recently said he had “love and respect” for the former president.
New York City is predicted to spend $12 billion on migrants by the end of 2025.
“The idea that more than 170,000 illegal migrants are somehow legally guaranteed a place to live, no matter the circumstances, is as morally obscene as it is legally questionable. And now we see the results,” the editorial board wrote.
The editorial said those include:
“A shelter system strained to the breaking point. High-schoolers booted into remote ‘learning’ to make room for migrant families. Migrants knocking on doors around the Floyd Bennett Field shelter to panhandle.”
“The resources of New Yorkers are now stretched to the utmost, as is their patience. Yet still the tide rolls on, and it’s clear only radical political change will end it,” the editorial concluded.
