Kanye West Defends His Support For Trump
Earlier in the segment West said he would not be “bullied” by those on the left because he supported the president.
“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” the Chicago rapper told Kimmel. “And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over; I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only, like, we can only be Democrats and all.”
Since the 2016 president election West has maintained his vocal support.
On Saturday, West cleared that there are no misunderstanding between him and Kimmel despite their differing views.
