That was quite unexpected! Believe it or not, Bernie Sanders made it known that he agrees with none other than Cardi B after she claimed FDR was the ‘president’ who ‘Made America Great Again,’ and, of course, not Donald Trump!
After noticing the exchange some labeled as the single ‘weirdest’ thing to take place this year, fans freaked out, begging the two to run for office together!
Many tweets like the one below started pouring in.

The Democratic presidential candidate took to social media to say he agrees with the Bodak Yellow rapper that there needs to be a stronger Social Security policy.
His tweet followed an interview of Cardi’s where she argued that Franklin D. Roosevelt played a huge role in starting Social Security when he was at the White House, saying he was ‘the real Make America Great Again’ President.
‘He’s the real ‘Make America Great Again,’ because if it wasn’t for him, old people wouldn’t even get Social Security.’
Today, Sanders tweeted: ‘Cardi B is right. If we really are going to make America great we need to strengthen the Social Security, so seniors are able to retire with the dignity that they deserve.’
In case you are not aware, during his presidency is when the said act was approved, providing much-needed welfare for the elderly and those unemployed.
Cardi was quick to notice she had been acknowledged by the politician and she took to Instagram to post a screenshot of his tweet and express her excitement by writing in the caption: ‘Oooooommmmmmggggg BERNIE SANDERS!’
Cardi, who is very passionate about political history, talked more at length about Roosevelt during her interview, saying: ‘Like, this man was suffering from polio at the time of his presidency, and yet all he was worried about was trying to make America great — make America great again for real.’
