‘Blacks are 90% Democrats. That sounds like control to me’: Kanye West delivers new Twitter rant declaring his support for Trump in 2019
Kanye West has tweeted his support for President Donald Trump,wading back into politics months after he declared he would set the subject aside.
‘Trump all day,’ the rapper tweeted on Tuesday afternoon to ring in the New Year, followed by emoji depicting dragons. ‘Just so in 2019 you know where I stand.’
It came months after West’s October declaration: ‘I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative.’
Tuesday’s tweet storm continued: ‘They will not program me.’
‘Blacks are 90% Democrats That sounds like control to me,’ West continued.
‘Love everyone,’ and ‘We will change the world. God is on my side. I am a Christian. I am a tax payer. I am myself. God is with us,’ the musician declared.
‘One of my favorite of many things that the trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me who I should do because I’m black. That’s real racism,’ he added in another tweet.
‘From now on I’m performing with my mutherf**king hat on,’ he said. ‘One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black.’
The rapper also noted that he had spoken with podcaster Joe Rogan in an interview that would be released soon.
West also hinted at his plans to run for president, writing simply: ‘2024’.
In October, West and Trump held a famously bizarre meeting in the Oval Office.
The rapper delivered a 10-minute monologue on various topics, and encouraged Trump to replace Air Force One with a concept aircraft he dubbed ‘iPlane One.’
Days later, West accused conservative activist Candace Owens of falsely claiming that he supported ‘Blexit’, her campaign to get black people to abandon the Democrat Party and support Republicans.
Furious, West declared that he was done with politics and would stick to creative endeavors.
