(AllHipHop News) Kanye West remains loud and proud in supporting Donald Trump.
During a recent interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Ye revealed it took him a year and half to build the confidence to come forth with his conservative political stance, putting to rest any rumors of his actions being a publicity stunt.
“Just as a musician, African-American, a guy living out in Hollywood, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” he stated. “Then told me every time that I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say that out loud or my career would be over. It took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat, no matter what the consequences.”
The President, of course, took to Twitter to speak his mind.
He tweeted, “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!”
