    Cardi said she became interested in running for office after watching war documentaries, and possibly subtweeted Trump for how he's handled the situation in Iran:

    Like I was watching War https://t.co/r4gwhTQkHy matter how many weapons a country have you need people ! How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American.

    Cardi then teased that there would be more to come from her on this topic soon.

    I will have to explain a lot so I will have to do a video or a live talking about it ...So imma come back to my last two tweets another day.Imma talk about it another day .

    "I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up I can be part of Congress," she added. "I deadass have sooo [many] ideas that make sense."

    Her tweet teasing a congressional run has since gone viral, amassing 160,000 likes in less than 24 hours. Lots of people are into the idea of Representative Cardi B.

    This is not the first time Cardi B has gotten political on social media. Last year, she released a viral video slamming Trump's government shutdown.

    And when people tried to come for Cardi saying she wasn't intelligent enough to delve into politics, her own high school teacher weighed in — letting the haters know that actually, Cardi is damn smart.

    "She probably scored higher than you on the US History regents exam and was in my AP government class," her teacher wrote on Facebook, adding: "STFU and take a seat."
