Trump, thanks to Kanye West for rising poll numbers
President Trump thanks to rapper Kanye West for the increase of its support, with African-Americans.
During a tv interview on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night, Kanye West defended his choice for the support of Donald Trump during an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and said that he will not be “bullied” by those on the left.
“Just as a musician, an African-American man 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 that every time I said I liked Trump, I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be; I would get kicked out of the black community, because blacks – we need a monolithic thought, we can only if we can only be the Democrats and all.”
West said it took him more than a year earlier, he won the “confidence to stand on” and in the public wearing of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hat – which caused an uproar from many of his fans back in April.
“I don’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and it took me half a year have the confidence to stand up and put the hat on, no matter what the consequences were,” West explained.
“And what it meant for me is not about the policy, because I’m not a politician, but it represented the overcoming of fear and do what you felt, no matter what anyone said, to say, you can not bully me. Liberals can’t bully me, news, can not bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me. Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I am not Ye. That is what makes You.”
