Cardi B is planning to file for citizenship in Nigeria after taking a dig at President Donald Trump for putting Americans at risk after ordering the assassination of Iran’s top general Qassem Soleimani.

The 27-year-old singer took to Twitter shortly after Trump ordered an airstrike that killed Soleimani, sparking several memes and concerns on Twitter of a conflict between the two nations.

Cardi B weighed in, discussing the possibility of New York coming under attack by Iran.

“Naaaaa these memes are f—in [emojis] but s— ain’t no joke ! Specially being from New York,” she wrote.

The star directly criticized Trump for making the U.S. a potential target for Iran following the death of Soleimani.

Cardi B said she was trying to get her Nigerian citizenship in the wake of increased tensions between Iran and the U.S.

“Its sad this man is putting Americans live in danger. Dumbest move Trump did till date …I’m filing for my Nigerian citizenship,” she said.

Fox News, a conservative network in the United States, which supports President Trump was quick to point out that “although it’s hard to tell if the singer is serious about fleeing the U.S. for fear of an attack by Iran, a Nigerian government official responded to the tweet, noting that she is welcome in the country”.

“As one in charge of the Diaspora for Ngr, We can’t wait to receive you again. Our doors are open, sister,” wrote Abike Dabiri-Erewa, chair of the Nigerians In Diaspora Commission and a former member of the Nigeria Federal House of Representatives. “And you need to talk a walk through the Door of Return in Badagry. It’s an indescribable experience.”

Fox News added that “the artist’s criticism of Trump comes amid her continued support of 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. In addition to having a face-to-face interview with Sanders about issues like wages, she’s tweeted her support for the 78-year-old in the past”.

“I been reading about Bernie Sanders and I’m really sad how we let him down in 2016 This man been fighting for equal rights,HUMAN rights for such along time.Seeing this country become a better place been really his passion for a long time not a new front for a campaign”.
