Kanye West has pledged allegiance to Donald Trump’s 2020 presidential campaign and claimed the US is in better shape now than when Barack Obama was in office.
The Yeezus rapper has not shied away from supporting Trump in the past, with stunts including rocking a signature MAGA cap, showing up at Trump Towers and endless Twitter rants in attempting to rally fans.
And despite facing fierce backlash for his choices, Kanye says he won’t be swayed to vote against Trump this year.
Speaking to G2 about his political leanings, Kanye said: “I’m definitely voting this time. And we know who I’m voting on.
“I was told my career would end if I wasn’t with [Hillary Clinton]. What kind of campaign is that, anyway?” he quipped.
“That’s like if Obama’s campaign was ‘I’m with black.’ What’s the point of being a celebrity if you can’t have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion! You know?” he said.
Explaining why he favours Trump Kanye said: “I buy real estate. It’s better now than when Obama as in office. They don’t teach you in school about property. They teach you how to become someone’s property.”
Kanye’s blatant support for Trump has been met with criticism closer to home with wife Kim Kardashian sharing her disproval.
