After about a million tweets and highly publicized support for Present Trump, fans have had a ton of unanswered questions when it comes to Kanye West. And today those same fans received answers to many of their questions, as Kanye took to YouTube to share his anticipated interview with Charlamagne Tha God.
Speaking on Donald Trump, Obama, Jay-Z, Virgil Abloh, mental health and more, Kanye West gave fans a very person window into his last year.
One thing that will give Yeezy’s more liberal fans a ton of comfort is when Kanye opened up about his recent support of President Trump. When describing a Kanye West run for presidency, Ye described it as a “Trump campaign with maybe the Bernie Sanders principles.” Kanye reiterated that Donald Trump becoming president showed him that he could one day become president, which clearly resonates a lot with Kanye. Although fans don’t like seeing Kanye in a MAGA hat, they should take comfort in knowing that Kanye West doesn’t agree with the majority of Trump’s controversial policies and political views.
It’s also not entirely surprising to see Kanye to move away from the Democratic Party, after hearing how Kanye was affected by interactions with President Obama. Not only was Kanye upset when video leaked of Obama calling West an asshole (with no apology after), but Kanye also shared a story of when he performed for an Obama fundraiser, but the President left right before Kanye performed, with no explanation. Let’s hope the two can talk and mend things real soon.
