The American rapper Cardi B unveiled Tuesday a conversation with the socialist candidate to the White House Bernie Sanders, which she supports with passion, on the need to increase the minimum wage in the United States.

Sitting in front of the seventy-year-old senator, the 26-year-old star asks in a low tone, far from her usual banter: "What are we going to do for wages in the United States?"

"When I was not famous, I just felt that, no matter how many jobs I had, I could not make ends meet because I could not pay my rent, transport and to eat, "continues the former stripper, prize rap album of the year at the last Grammy Awards in January.

"Some people boast that there are more jobs in America today, OK, we give more jobs, but how are they paid? These jobs are almost paid for nothing," says New Yorker.

"Exactly, that's exactly the problem," said independent Senator Bernie Sanders, who made the minimum wage increase at $ 15 an hour one of his big fights.

"At the moment, we have tens of millions of people earning what I consider to be starvation wages, and you can expect to earn nine dollars an hour?" Says the unfortunate candidate for the 2016 Democratic primary.

Strong at the time of great support among young people, Bernie Sanders had created the surprise by seeming to threaten for many months the appointment of the Democrat Hillary Clinton.

He is currently in third place polls for the Democratic primary for the 2020 US presidential election.

The amazing Sanders-Cardi B duo met at a beauty salon in Detroit in late July to shoot this interview, a fitting place for the rapper, who often wears, like this video, ultra-sophisticated manicures. .

An hour after it was posted, the video posted on the star's Instagram account had already been viewed more than a million times.
