According to a source, Kanye West genuinely supports and believes in Donald Trump. An insider explained that Kanye just “loves Donald Trump, and genuinely believes the president is going to change America and turn it into the country that it was meant to be. He also thinks Trump is doing an amazing job right now.”
The source added, “he talks about him all of the time. His larger than life persona kind of appeals to him, and the way in which the public is always criticizing the president is similar to Kanye.”
“In some way, Kanye and Trump are similar because they both face a lot of scrutiny for the kinds of things they say and do in the press.” On the other hand, some fans believe Kanye is mostly just doing things for self-promotion.
“Whenever Kanye watches the news, he thinks Trump is correct when he says the media and other political pundits treat him unfairly. He talks about it all of the time.”
During his appearence on Saturday Night Live, Kanye used his platform to sing the praises of Donald Trump. According to the rapper, there are so many times when he speaks to a white person, and they ask him why he could support the controversial politician considering he’s an alleged “racist.”
The Ye rapper explained that if he were so bothered by racism, he would’ve left the United States years ago. Kim Kardashian doesn’t support her husband politically, but she has spoken with Trump a few times, especially in regards to Alice Marie Johnson, who Trump granted a pardon earlier in the year, and was subsequently released from prison.
One person who really took issue with Kanye’s support for the presidency was Lana Del Ray, who said on her Instagram that Kanye’s hailing of the Trump administration was a “loss for the culture.”
She went on to accuse him, as well as Trump, of having “delusions of grandeur and extreme issues with narcissism,” insinuating that’s why they get along so well.
