Donald Trump is Using 50 Cent’s Recent Endorsement to Mock Joe Biden

Donald Trump continues to mock the Democratic nominee.

With the election less than two weeks away, Donald Trump continues his onslaught of online mockery. This time around, he used a recent endorsement from 50 Cent to mock Joe Biden‘s tax plan.

The president simply posted a picture of a recent issue of the New York Post, which echoes social media posts opposing Joe Biden’s proposed tax plan. The plan would increase taxes for wealthy citizens, setting the line at those making over $400,000 per year. CNN reports that the federal tax rate would be raised to 39.6 percent, its level pre-Trump. The top 1 percent of earners would hypothetically see an average reduction of 15.9 percent after taxes.

 

Along with a picture listing the combined state tax rates for California, New Jersey, New York State and City under Biden’s plan–New York City is listed at a prospective 62 percent rate–50 decried the idea over the course of a few posts.

“What the f—!” he captioned. “Vote for Trump, I’m out. F— New York. The Knicks never win anyway. I don’t care Trump doesn’t like Black people 62 percent are you out of ya f—-ing mind?”

 

Hours later, he posted a conversation about his endorsement between four Fox News correspondents about his endorsement. “Yeah, I don’t want to be 20 Cent,” he continued. “62 percent is a very very bad idea. I don’t like it!”

In the comments, MSNBC’s Ari Melber remarked on the choice in outlet. “You getting your news from over there now?!” he wrote. “50 come home.”
