"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."
Owens' tweet followed an Instagram live, where she defended 50 Cent, who slammed a tax proposal from Democratic presidential nominee Biden.
The rapper – whose real name is Curtis Johnson – had shared a report from CNBC's Power Lunch showing what tax rates top earners in California, New York state, and New York City would see 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."
Biden's plan would only apply to earners who make more than $400,00 – but Jackson seemingly did not approve.
On Monday night, Owens posted a video on Instagram TV about 50 Cent seemingly backing Trump and defending the rapper.
"It's because he's smart and you're not," Owens said.
"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 claimed.
Owens continued: "Poor people pay less taxes when rich people pay less taxes."
The Blexit founder then claimed that raising taxes in one state will then cause higher earners to "pick up" and move to another state with lower tax rates.
She claimed the government will then increase taxes on the poor after the rich leave.
"What Joe Biden is proposing… is something that is going to hurt poor people because rich people are going to leave," Owens claimed.
"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 a vocal Trump supporter.
She recently claimed that Trump is "obviously" beating Joe Biden, and baselessly alleged Democrats are "trying to steal the election."
She also accused Democrats of "bringing back segregation" as she gave a speech before a Trump rally at the White House.
