Halsey Says She Supports The Wealth Tax In Conversation with Bernie Sanders

Halsey invited Senator Bernie Sanders to an open conversation where they shared their thoughts on the upcoming presidential election and the wealth tax.

The 26-year-old singer and the politician got candid about they really thought about last week’s Presidential debate, before diving into a conversation about tax evasion and wealth inequalities.

Halsey discussed her upbringing, saying she is from a “lower-class family” with parents that dropped out of college to have her.

“Now, as an adult at 26 years old I’m part of the one-percent,” Halsey said. “There is no amount of money that I think is worth personally contributing to the alienation, the disenfranchisement of millions, hundreds of millions of people across this country. Which is why despite being in the one percent, I support the wealth tax. Because I believe that the people who oppose it are motivated by greed.”

Bernie added that American has “an economy that is controlled by people who are incredibly greedy.”

“They want more and more and more, so that we end up with three people in America owning more wealth than the bottom half of our society. Three people. The top one percent owns more wealth than the bottom 92 percent,” he shared.

After promising more talks with them both, Halsey and Bernie both endorsed Joe Biden for President.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Explains Why She Nominated Bernie Sanders During Democratic Convention

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is explaining what she said during the 2020 Democratic Convention.

While appearing during the virtual DNC on Tuesday (August 18), the 30-year-old U.S. Representative praised Senator Bernie Sanders‘ campaign, before seconding his nomination for president.

AOC‘s nomination for Sanders confused viewers – since Vice President Joe Biden is the official Democratic nominee – so she took to Twitter to explain.

“If you were confused, no worries!” AOC tweeted. “Convention rules require roll call & nominations for every candidate that passes the delegate threshold. I was asked to 2nd the nom for Sen. Sanders for roll call. I extend my deepest congratulations to @JoeBiden – let’s go win in November.”

AOC then went on to show her support for Biden.

“Congratulations, @JoeBiden – I deeply look forward to fighting for our future together and reclaiming our democracy in November,” AOC tweeted. “Thank you @DemConvention for having me deliver Sen. Sanders’ roll call nomination speech. It’s been an absolute honor. #NotMeUs & #Biden2020.”

We be loving something but we just be lazy to do it, it’s like motherf–kers was just lazy to vote for him,” she said of Bernie Sanders dropping out of the presidential race.

She then explained why it was important to later endorse Joe Biden.

“I feel like it’s important now because like, yo Trump is…I cannot, I’m telling you, if Trump goes for like another four years, I’m going to have a meltdown, Like I will have a mental breakdown. I cannot deal with this anymore…I do be scared of the state of the country…not only do I care about the people, but it’s like I am afraid of the future,” she went on to say.

“I don’t want an another war…the economy right now, it sucks, like people are not making money. Some people are getting money, and they are not supposed to be getting money. This coronavirus s–t, I want it to be over but I don’t want people to lie to me…God forbid that my grandparents, somebody gets sick. I haven’t seen my grandparents in a month and I’m dying to see them,” she continued.

When asked what she would ask Joe in a sit-down interview similar to the one she did with Bernie, Cardi simply said: “you gonna see.”

She also revealed the “nasty” meaning of her new single.

Cardi B Chats With Bernie Sanders About Joe Biden, Coronavirus & More in Instagram Live

Cardi B joined Bernie Sanders on an Instagram Live talk on Tuesday (April 14), where the two opened up about his decision to drop out of the Presidential race, the impact of coronavirus and more.

The 27-year-old rapper opened up to Bernie about her disappointment, but understanding in him dropping out of the race and brought the focus on the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, who Bernie endorsed earlier in the week.

“I’m just gonna go with Joe Biden because I cannot see the next step of America being run by number 45,” Cardi shared, adding that “A lot of people, like the youth, they don’t really rock with Joe Biden because he’s conservative.”

Bernie told Cardi that since before his endorsement, he has been working with Biden on becoming a more progressive candidate.

He said he expects Biden to stand for a $15 minimum wage, college opportunities “regardless of income,” and canceling student debt for “a lot of people.”

“I would go further in all of these areas than he goes, but he is moving in the right direction,” Bernie added.

Cardi and Bernie also touched on how the country won’t go back to normal as usual after the coronavirus has been eradicated, and how legislators are trying to “go around Trump” in order to get the medical equipment, including ventilators and testing kits to aid with the pandemic.

“We are in for a ride,” she added. “After everything goes back to normal again, I want to let people know that things are not going to be back normal again.”
