50 Cent Suggests Trump Could Be the Solution Following NYC Mayor Adams’ Distribution of Prepaid Credit Cards to Migrants

50 Cent criticized Mayor Eric Adams’ $53 million plan to provide prepaid credit cards to New York City migrants, expressing his belief that former President Donald Trump might be better equipped to tackle the nation’s evident challenges. The rapper articulated his stance through an Instagram post.

“WTF mayor Adams call my phone, I don’t understand how this works somebody explain,” the rapper wrote after sharing a screengrab of the New York Post’s coverage of the proposal. “Can’t explain this I’m stuck maybe TRUMP is the answer.”

The city initiative, aimed at assisting asylum seekers at the Roosevelt Hotel, will provide direct cash assistance funded by taxpayers to help cover expenses for food, as per city records.

50 Cent has previously criticized California for a comparable choice to utilize taxpayer funds for providing healthcare to undocumented individuals.

Adams contends that the initiative will lead to a monthly saving of $600,000, totaling $7.2 million annually, by eliminating expenses on unwanted meals for asylum seekers. The program will commence with 500 migrant families in temporary hotel accommodations, with a potential monthly assistance of nearly $1,000 for a family of four, renewing every 28 days.

Selected individuals in the New York City program will receive cards exclusively usable at bodegas, supermarkets, and delis, adding to the array of benefits available to undocumented migrants in the Democrat-controlled metropolis.

According to The Daily Mail, migrants must sign an affidavit, pledging to use the cards only for food and baby supplies, or face termination of the assistance. The NY Post highlights that 50 Cent, like many in the rap community, has long expressed support for Trump, endorsing him in the 2020 presidential election due to concerns about potential tax increases.

“I don’t want to be 20cent” under Biden he joked in an X posting during the campaign.
