US Rapper and entrepreneur 50 Cent has disclosed who he is voting for in the upcoming presidential election.

On Monday, October 19, Fifty Cent  pledged his support for President Donald Trump for the 2020 presidential election after coming across Joe Biden’s proposed tax rates for some selected states.

 

In a post shared on his Instagram page, the rapper shed light on his frustrations with the Democratic presidential candidate, who is proposing to increase taxes for New York City, New York State, New Jersey and California taxpayers earning more than $400,000 a year.

 

Popular news channel, CNBC, reports that higher earning residents in California, New York City and New Jersey are looking at a combined state and local income tax rate of at least 60 percent.


Residents in New York State could face a rate of 58 percent. However, those who make less than $400,000 in those states, would receive tax cuts under Biden’s proposed plan.

 

Since the Queens rapper worths multimillions, it’s easy to assume that him watching his money flow quickly into the pockets of Uncle Sam could have swayed his decision.

 

On the other hand, Trump is known for creating tax breaks that benefit billionaires. The current President of the United States also recently came under fire after tax returns released by The New York Times revealed that the 74-year-old public figure only paid $750 in taxes in 2017.

 

This, however, isn’t the first time Fif has expressed his fondness for Trump. Back in April, the New York rapper told fans he was in favor of Trump after the president encouraged Americans to ingest disinfectant to fight the coronavirus.

However, fans felt some type of at the rapper’s endorsement of Trump. “50 Cent can go fuck himself for choosing his personal wealth over the health of the nation What a selfish piece of shit,” one angry Twitter user wrote.

 

One other user showed support for the rhymer’s reason to vote for the Republican front runner.
“50 Cent has endorsed Trump because he doesn’t want Biden to take over half his earnings in taxes.

 

“The Left of course treats this as some kind of frivolous reason to vote a certain way, but these are the sorts of things actual adults care about,” the person tweeted.

Fif began trending on social media after he voiced his support for Trump and some of the reactions can be found below.
