Kim Kardashian Says Kanye West Legitimized Donald Trump

Was the reality TV star used as a political pawn?

(AllHipHop News) Kim Kardashian West received a lot of praise this week for her successful effort of lobbying Donald Trump to commute the sentence of Alice Marie Johnson. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star sat down with CNN's Van Jones to discuss the situation.

Jones asked Kim K if Trump used her as a political pawn as a way to legitimize his controversial presidency. She responded, "I think Kanye [West] has already given him legitimacy in that way. I was working on this before. I don't think I would be used."

Two years ago, Kanye was hit with negative reactions when he told a concert audience he would have voted for Trump in the 2016 election and for later meeting with the President-Elect at Trump Tower. The rapper/producer was criticized even more when he continued to endorse the president and his MAGA movement on Twitter in April of this year.

While Kim Kardashian believes her husband's support elevated Trump, Ye recently admitted she was not happy about him backing the POTUS. West stated that Kim told him not to embrace the divisive politician.
