Following her public statements about her desires to one day join Congress, Cardi B is receiving some pretty strong backing from this presidential candidate.

Speaking with TMZ on Tuesday (Jan. 14), Senator Bernie Sanders told the outlet that the "Bodak Yellow" rapper would make a fine political peer despite some lack of faith in the rapper.

"Cardi B is deeply concerned about what's happening in the country," the 78-year old political figure began. "She knows what it's like to live in poverty and struggle, and it would be great for her to bring that experience to politics."

Cardi B confessed her desire to run for Congress via Twitter earlier this week, writing "I think I want to be a politician. I really love government even tho I don’t agree with Government." She later received some backlash for detailing her future goals, but that didn't stop people like Sanders from coming to her aid.

Cardi, who just returned after doing shows in Africa and Senator Sanders are an unlikely pair just like Martha and Snoop. Their relationship also has a bit of little history. Back in July of 2019, the Bronx native sat with Sanders to ask him questions about what he plans for American people if he wins the 2020 Presidential election.

Since then the pair have been as thick as thieves, Cardi B has remained one of Sanders' most well-known supporters since the ongoing presidential election has begun to intensify.

While most people look at Cardi B's interest in politics as a fad, the 27-year old has been an active advocate for minority and disenfranchised people. Most recently, Cardi spoke out against the current U.S. president, Donald Trump after he ordered an airstrike in Iran that killed general Qasem Soleimani and brought on the prospect of WWIII.

In a brief statement on Twitter, Cardi typed, "naaaaa these memes are fuckin 😅😅😩 but shit ain’t no joke!" she wrote. "Specially being from New York. Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger. Dumbest move Trump did till date ...I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship."

Being that the bold Bronx rhymer is thinking about putting in the work to help the American people, do you think she could get your vote?
