Cardi B’s offer as a politician has received support from a highly respected source – US Senator Bernie Sanders.
The “Please Me” hitmaker, who was announced on social media last week, was keen to pursue a political career because she “really loves” the idea of the government, even though she is not a supporter of President Donald Trump or his republican government is.
She wrote on Twitter: “I think I want to be a politician. I really love the government, although I don’t agree with the government.
“As if I had seen war documentaries. No matter how many weapons a country has, you need people! How do you try to go against a country and possibly start a war if there is no patriotism in that country? I hardly see any people claim they LOVE being American. (sic) ”
And one person who thinks the 27-year-old rapper is a fantastic member of Congress is Sanders, who is in the middle of his second presidential campaign against Trump.
He told TMZ: “Cardi B is deeply concerned about what is happening in the country. She knows what it is like to live in poverty and struggle, and it would be great if she brought this experience into politics.”
Cardi and Sanders have long admired each other.

Last July, the Vermont politician said it was a tremendous upswing for him to be supported by someone like Cardi.
At the time, he said: “What it means what Cardi B does is not only that she is a hugely popular entertainer, but she talks to young people about the important issues that are in their heads, and I very much welcome that a lot of.”
And Cardi said in December that their support was firm behind Sanders and said: “People are not perfect, but he has perfect intentions. He cares about minorities, of course. He actually cares about people who get Medicare because he knows that they can’t afford it I don’t feel like he’s just saying these things because he wants the vote. ”
