The reality TV couple met the president at the White House a few months ago, and the rapper has also expressed his support before. That being said, Donald Trump felt like repaying the favor and talked positively about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West at a GOP Event!
During his speech at a fundraising dinner for the Ohio Republican Party yesterday, Trump stated: ‘Now we’re doing great and Kanye West liked me and that really lifted my- Kanye West has some real power!’
He went on to add that ‘He’s got a good wife too, in Kim, I’ll tell ya. She really is.’
Trump and the Kardashian met up at the White House back in June, where the reality TV star requested a presidential pardon for a 63-year-old woman, Alice Marie Johnson, who had been convicted to life in prison for a first-time drug offense.
‘She did a great thing. She did a great thing. The woman was in jail on a very strange thing. She was there for 22 years, and it was based on a phone call they were listening to, and she had another 24 years, she was about 62 or 63, and I gave her a pardon,’ Trump went on.
‘And she came out of that jail after all of those years and the way she hugged and kissed her family and the way they loved her so much. She had some grandchildren, some sons, some grandchildren that were so beautiful, they were grabbing her, and it was just a beautiful thing to see, and she was in there for 22 years, and that was through Kim Kardashian, so I think it was terrific. I do not know if you saw that. Did you see that? The scene of her coming out of jail. That was pretty, pretty good,’ he concluded.
As you may be aware, the president received a lot of backlash for the fact that he gushed about Kim and Kanye while completely ignoring the sad news that Sen. John McCain has decided to end his terminal brain cancer treatment.
