(AllHipHop News) Minister Louis Farrakhan is the latest to voice his opinions on Kanye West’s recent antics.

Stopping by the radio station at 107.5 WGCI in Chicago, the American religious leader/activist began by praising Ye.

He states, “Kanye is my brother and I love him dearly. He's a very, very brilliant man who is struggling to find his way. And when he was on the radio with Charlamagne Tha God, that was a great interview. Because every time Charlamagne would say, ‘When you had a break-down,’ Kanye would say, ‘I would rather call it a break-through.’”

This lead to comments on Kanye’s erratic statements about slavery being a choice.

“He’s wrestling with 400 years. And he misspoke. ‘Cause 'we didn’t choose slavery,' come on now. Nobody that loves freedom would choose slavery. But it wasn’t a choice, it was God’s choice.”

In addition, Farrakhan spoke on the state of America thanks to President Trump.

“Mr. Trump, you have to be careful. Because I did say to a sister station, ‘If we voted for Trump, it’s gonna take America to hell on a rocket ship.’ And America, he thinks, is gaining by the bullying, by the threats. NO! Mr. Trump, America is losing.”
