Bernie Sanders in Video with Cardi B for US Presidential Campaign

WASHINGTON – Democrat Bernie Sanders and rapper Cardi B have filmed a campaign video together to attract young voters.

The United States presidential hopeful featured in the clip in a nail salon in Detroit, where the second round of Democratic candidate debates will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Sanders said that he and Cardi B talked about student debt, the climate crisis and minimum wage.

“We (are) working on a way to involve more young people in the political process,” he said to CNN. “The future of America depends on young people. They are voting in large numbers, but not large enough numbers.”

Cardi B posted a picture of the meeting with Sanders on her Instagram account.

“Thank you Senator Bernie Sanders for sitting with me and sharing your plans on how you will change this country,” she wrote.

“Stay tuned to see how he will fight for economic, racial, and social justice for all,” she added. “Together, let’s build a movement of young people to transform this country.”

It was the first time Sanders and Cardi B had met in person, although they had both repeatedly expressed mutual admiration.

At the beginning of July, she mentioned Sanders on her Twitter account.

“I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I’m really sad how we let him down in 2016,” she wrote. “This man been fighting for equal rights, HUMAN rights for such a long time. Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign.”

The New York-born rapper became famous with her album “Invasion of Privacy” and singles including “Bodak Yellow” and “I Like It.”

In a recent interview with US television host Jimmy Kimmel, Sanders said he had talked on the phone with Cardi B on “multiple occasions” and that the artist was worried about what is happening in the US.

Sanders was asked by CNN what Cardi B’s support means for him.

“What it means is that, what Cardi B does is not only is she an enormously popular entertainer what she is doing is speaking to young people about the important issues that are on their minds and I applaud that very much,” he replied.
