Kanye West tweets support for President Trump

Kanye West tweets support for President Trump

West's tweets later caught the eye of the president who tweeted, "Thank you Kanye, very cool!".

After Kanye West came out as a Trump supporter over the weekend, he received a massive backlash from the left.

And during her apperance on Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning, Janelle Monáe had this to say about Kanye: "I don't agree with him ..." "He is my brother".

Never one to hold back, West responded, "I love you John and I appreciate your thoughts". That's what makes us individuals.

"Yes, we have the right to independent thought and I independently think Kanye has lost his mind", Colbert said to applause. He followed up with a string of tweets championing "free thought", plus two photos of a signed Make America Great Again hat. He tweeted about everything from Coachella, his family and Donald Trump.

And now, "crime is way down, and really importantly, the unemployment picture is the best it's been in the history of our country for African-Americans".

On April 25, Kanye tweeted, "The mob can't make me not love [Trump]". I don't agree with everything anyone does.

West's fellow stars have lashed out against West's pro-Trump tweets and a few even reportedly unfollowed the rapper for his latest rant.

The Kardashian matriarch notoriously serves as the puppeteer behind her daughters' careers and has made an art out of figuring out how to finesse money from her children's truly unpredictable life choices.

But he added that he also loves former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

He has recorded several best-selling albums and produced a buzzy fashion line and has the undeniable talent for attracting attention. He's also been linked to several previous presidents, including when Obama called him "a jackass" in 2009 for storming the stage at an MTV awards show to interrupt Taylor Swift. In fact, West soon shared his response with his followers. West not only wouldn't back down, but he took their private text exchange and posted it on Twitter today.

The rapper has "always been expressive", she added, but went on to suggest she may not be a fan of the President, writing "most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this".

But others were quick to embrace West. As a result, Kanye West's tweets triggered an ideological shockwave on both sides of the political spectrum. (West's wife, Kim Kardashian, also said she disagreed with her husband.) Apparently, Legend - or "JL" - then reached out privately to West to ask him to reconsider all the "MAGA" talk.
