Cardi and and democratic 2020 presidential nominee Joe Biden have teamed up for a special interview for a discussion on a variety of issues.
The interview, conducted in a social distancing-friendly manner via Elle and published Monday, sees Biden first congratulating Cardi for her recent appearance on the cover of the publication. From there, the two waste no time in discussing how integral it is to boot Trump from the White House.
“I don’t want someone to lie to me and tell me that it’s okay not to wear a mask, that everything is going to be okay,” Cardi, who also called for healthcare reform during the discussion, said. “I want a president to tell me what the steps are for us to get better, to tell me, ‘This is why it is taking so long, this is why other countries are doing better than ours.'”

It’s simple: We want to feel like Americans.” Watch the full conversation at the link in bio.
