    Commenting on his meeting with the rapper, Sanders said that he and Cardi now seek to “transform” the United States by increasing the involvement of young people in the political process.

    As politicians in the United States prepare for 2020 elections, Democratic Senator and presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has revealed that he recently had a conversation about "the future of America" with none other than Cardi B, a rap artist who appears to have developed a penchant for political commentary.

    Shedding light on their meeting on Twitter, the senator told his audience straight out that "Cardi B is right".

    "Together, we’ll get millions of young people involved in the political process and transform this country," Sanders wrote, advising his audience to "stay tuned for our video coming soon."

    ​The tweet elicited a mixed response online with social media users both pleased and amused with the development.

    However, there was also no shortage of critics who had some unflattering things to say about both Bernie and Cardi.
