    This week, Cardi B stole the spotlight when she criticised Trump online, insisting that people should start taking the current situation in the country seriously, though her audience was left divided over the rapper’s statements.

    With no end to the month-long US government shutdown in sight, American rapper Cardi B has once again stepped forward to offer her opinion on the current crisis.

    Following up on her impassioned Wednesday speech, Cardi posted a message on social media, advising Trump supporters to "work for free while the government is shut down" to show their support for their president. 

    ​Her words appeared to resonate with many social media users.

    ​Some, however, seemingly weren’t inclined to agree with the rap star.

    Earlier this week, the rapper released a video where she complained about the shutdown, insisting that people ”really need to take this thing seriously” and “take some action”, adding though that she isn’t quite sure exactly what kind of “action” that might be.
