Cardi B got the attention of former Presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders.
Sanders took to Twitter to address Social Security where he said that the Bronx rapper was right when she said that Franklin D. Roosevelt gave Americans Social Security and that he was the “real ‘Make America Great Again’ President.”

“Cardi B is right. If we are really going to make America great we need to strengthen Social Security so that seniors are able to retire with the dignity they deserve,” he wrote.

Early this month, Cardi made the comments during an in-depth GQ interview where she was rattling off her presidential trivia knowledge.
Cardi noticed the senator’s tweet and posted her excitement over the news on Instagram.
