It looks like Kanye West is finally realizing he made a mistake by supporting Donald Trump and he is now admitting he was ‘used.’ This is not a revelation for the rest of the world but at least he figured it out in the end, right? Better late than never!
The rapper seems to be throwing away his MAGA hat and choosing to stay away from politics altogether.
Ye took to social media earlier today to make his political views very clear, just a few weeks after a very embarrassing White House meeting with Donald Trump.
Has Kim Kardashian’s husband turned his back on the president?
Now, Ye admits he may have been used, in particular by Trump supporter Candace Owens.
On his Twitter, Kanye started by writing: ‘I support creating jobs and many opportunities for people who need them the most, I support prison reform, common-sense gun laws which will make our world safer. I support those who risk their very lives to serve and to protect us, and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable for it.’
‘I believe in love and in compassion for people seeking asylum and parents who are fighting to protect their children from violence and war.’
His views on those ‘seeking asylum’ are definitely in conflict with the Donald’s stance on the matter.
Slamming the people fleeing crime and drug wars as well as poverty and heading to the U.S. from Central America, Trump tweeted: ‘Many gang members and some very bad people are mixed into the caravan heading to our Southern Border.’
As for Kanye, he also decided to distance himself from his ‘Blexit’ line which was meant to encourage African-Americans to exit the Democratic party.
‘I introduced Candace to the person who made the logo and they did not want their name on it so she used mine. I never wanted any association with Blexit. I have nothing to do with it,’ Kanye said in response to a statement that ‘Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West.’
Ye went on to thank ‘my family, loved ones, and community for supporting my ACTUAL beliefs and my vision for a better world. My eyes are wide open now and I realize I have been used to spread messages I do not believe in. I’m distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative!’
That’s all his loyal fans have been wanting for the longest time!
