Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., will never be a rapper, but he does know his hip-hop stars and Wednesday invoked the name of Cardi B as he called for the strengthening of the Social Security system.

Earlier this month, the red-hot Bronx rapper posted a tweet praising Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the nation's 32nd president who served from 1933 to 1945, and created the New Deal and Social Security programs following The Great Depression.

Using a quote she gave earlier to GQ magazine, Cardi B tweeted.

In the GQ piece, Cardi B also said: "First of all, he helped us get over the Depression, all while he was in a wheelchair. 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."

The 25-year-old star, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, entered at the Billboard 200 chart at number one with her debut studio album "Invasion of Privacy," which features the hit single "Bodak Yellow."
