Trump is well behind the presumptive Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, in the polls, after a controversial term that has been dogged by accusations of racism, corruption, and criticism of his response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cardi initially backed veteran democratic socialist Bernie Sanders for president but is now completely behind Biden, the man who beat him in the Democratic Party's primary elections, as she fears she won't be able to cope with four more years of Trump.
"I feel like it's important (to back Biden) 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," she told SiriusXM's Swaggy Sie on Friday, August 7. "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 (sic)."
"I don't want an another war...the economy right now, it sucks, like people are not making money (sic). Some people are getting money, and they are not supposed to be getting money."
She continued: "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."
But Cardi's support for Biden doesn't mean she isn't disappointed Sanders lost out, a result she blames on young people failing to turn out and support him, despite his popularity with youthful voters.
Explaining her fury, she added: "You know what, I was so f**king mad because it's like people, when he dropped, people was like, 'Oh what do you mean?' Why? Because of y'all! Because you know how this new generation is. We be loving something but we just be lazy to do it, it's like motherf**kers was just lazy to vote for him (sic)."
