On Thursday night, Kanye West served as a special guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where he once again spoke about his support of President Donald Trump, saying he didn’t like being “forced” to pick his candidate. “Just as a musician, African American, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me and then told me that I couldn’t say that I like Trump,” Kanye said to Kimmel. Ye also talked more in depth about our mindsets and being controlled by outside forces, among other things (see interview here).
Well of course, Trump caught wind of the interview on Friday and decided to give thanks to Ye on Twitter.
“Thank you to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH. One new and great FACT – African American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our Country. So honored by this. Thank you Kanye for your support. It is making a big difference,” he wrote.
Back in 2016, following Trump’s inauguration, Kanye was spotted hanging out with the President at his hotel and even took a meeting with him, so to see their bond still going strong isn’t that surprising.
This tweet from Trump comes just days after he did the opposite to LeBron James and insulted his intelligence.
