Rapper 50 Cent, given name Curtis Jackson III, endorsed President Trump in a back handed manner after seeing CNBC’s analysis of Biden’s tax plan, which would raise taxes for top tier earners significantly.
In states like California, or New York, where Jackson resides, “taxpayers earning more than $400,000 a year could face combined state and local statutory income tax rates of more than 60%,” according to the report.
Jackson regularly trolls the president on social media, in March he posted a jab about how the Trump administration was handling the beginning of the pandemic.
“You wanted a reality show host as President,” he wrote. “Well now you’re on Survivor.”

In a viral post in April, he mashed up his face with the President’s. “I’m gonna take over Tv and get rid of anyone who dares to report anything negative about our leader,” he tweeted.

After Trump’s bleach comment was taken out of context, Jackson posted that Trump was a nightmare, “but I think I like him.”
But Jackson changed his tune when he learned Biden’s policies would hurt his bottom line, as he would undoubtedly fall into the 62% top tax rate category in New York City. “I’m OUT,” he wrote. “F*** New York the Knicks never win anyway.”
After seeing the numbers laid out before him, Jackson posted a screenshot of his television screen along with “VOTE for TRUMP.”
Fox Nation host Tomi Lahren replied, “Welcome to the Trump Train!”
And @50cent just said, “Vote Trump” after seeing what Slow Joe’s tax rates will be! Let’s go!!!

Best selling author Candace Owens replied with several clapping hand emojis and addressed the tax cuts via Facebook to educate the liberal commenters hating on Jackson.
Yeah. I’ll be going live on Facebook about this in 5 minutes.
Because people in his comment are just crazy uneducated about how tax cuts work and it’s time to put a rest to Biden’s LIE about tax cuts for the rich. https://t.co/BvFchHo7ZT

Jackson’s an equal opportunity troll, poking fun at his own financial situation in a final post. “I just remembered i’m bankrupt, so i’m looking for a gracious loan can anyone help a brother out.”
