President Trump on Friday took to Twitter to praise Kanye West following the rapper's recent "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" appearance, in which he defended his decision to support Trump during his bid for the White House. Later, West revealed that his support for Trump didn't actually have much to do with policy, a position that's probably similar to the average person's support for any politician.
When he was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2013, West stated, "Jimmy does his thing, I do my thing, and at some point, egos can flare up, and we kind of took it back to high school". "That's what makes Ye", Kanye added - Watch the full interview below! "And there's times where, at least I'm happy that I know. I think it's important for us to have conversations about mental health, especially with me being black".
West went silent, and Kimmel cut to commercial to end the awkward moment. I love everyone. I don't agree with everything anyone does.
When Kimmel joked that "all people need to do is get on TV", West responded with a serious answer.
"It's amusing, in this world that we live in, there's two main motivating forces - and I tweet about it all the time - it's love or fear, and you can't explain love", Kanye answered.
When pressed about Trump's policies and how West once said that President George W. Bush doesn't care about Black people but that it doesn't seem as though the current president cares about any people, the outspoken West paused for longer than a moment, and Kimmel chose to send the show to commercial.
Not too long ago, West talked about making a potential run at the presidency.
He continued: Even when I said it, right before I went to the hospital [see note below] and I expressed myself.
Another Twitter user put it best, writing, "This is your "I have one black friend" tweet".
