Candace Owens has accused Democrats of trying to "tax black millionaires into poverty" after rapper 50 Cent endorsed President Donald Trump over his challenger Joe Biden's controversial tax plan for those making more than $400,000 a year.

"Democrats enslaved blacks, segregated blacks and are now planning to tax black millionaires back into poverty—all the while convincing poor blacks (who were miseducated through their public schools) to vote for them," Owens tweeted on Tuesday. "It’s so evil & Machiavellian— I almost respect it. Almost."



 

Following the tweet, Owens went live on Instagram - where she defended the famed rapper after he pushed back against a tax proposal from the Biden campaign.

50 had shared a screenshot from CNBC's Power Lunch that showed an infographic of tax rates that top earners in California and New York would have to pay under Biden's plan. "WHAT THE F**K! (VOTE ForTRUMP) IM OUT... F**K NEW YORK The KNICKS never win anyway," he wrote on social media. "I don’t care Trump doesn’t like black people 62% are you out of ya f**king mind."

Pro-Trump Twitterati seemed to be in agreement with Owens.

"50 Cent just broke the matrix because he is pointing out the elephant in the room... Biden’s policies. The left has been trying to make this election about Trump’s personality to distract.. so 50cent comes out & says “wait a minute? you wanna tax me how much??" one wrote.

"I’m not conservative but the hidden morality clauses the left keeps highlighting is getting ridiculous. The problem with leftism is equality and equity are not mathematically empirical nor binary. Bottom line: some sh** just ain’t fair," another added.



 

 



 

"It's because he's smart and you're not," Owens said in an IGTV video Monday night, defending the rapper against his critics. "If you actually believe that Joe Biden is only going to raise taxes for people making over $400,000... what it shows, you have to be extremely ignorant about economics." She added: "Poor people pay less taxes when rich people pay less taxes."

The Blexit founder also noted how raising tax rates in one state would cause high net worth individuals to move to another state with lower taxes. This, Owens said, would result in the government raising taxes on the poor after the rich leave the state. "What Joe Biden is proposing... is something that is going to hurt poor people because rich people are going to leave," she said. "You just saw 50 Cent say 'I've had enough with that'... these are the people that I'm talking about," she added. "He's already paying for the majority of you people."

Owens is one of the most vocal Black Trump supporters in the country. She recently declared that Trump was "obviously" beating Biden and accused Democrats of "trying to steal the election."

“You need but look at the lines and packed arenas at Trump rallies to determine that he is winning by a landslide," The conservative commentator tweeted on October 18, adding that the Democrats’ “play was always to use to COVID-19 to explain Biden’s lack of support—followed by fake polls and forged mail-in ballots to attempt an election steal.”



 

And in a speech before a Trump rally at the White House -- shortly after the President's COVID-19 recovery -- Owens accused Democrats of "bringing back segregation."

"I’m telling you now if the left wins, we are not going to recognize this country anymore," she told the crowd as she took to the stage. "What we are talking about and what they are after are Marxist principles. They are right now teaching in school critical race theory. The left is reintroducing the same segregation that they had decades ago. They are looking to foster race hate." She added: "When they look at a crowd like this, it makes them nervous."
