During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Thursday night, Kanye West defended his decision to support Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election, and said he would not be “bullied” by those on the left.

“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” the Chicago rapper told Kimmel. “And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over; I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks — we’re supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only, like, we can only be Democrats and all.”

The article goes on to state the following:

West said it took more than a year before he gained the “confidence to stand up” and publicly wear Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” hat – which caused an uproar from many of his fans back in April.

“I didn’t have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and 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 were,” West explained.

    Kanye is very good at articulating his opinions. The nuclear bomb of hate comment was spot on. I wonder how he answered JK’s question at the end. I hope it was with the truth that President Trump is following existing law on the border just as the past two Presidents did. Not all adults are parents at the border. Also I hope he mentioned how unemployment numbers are down in America. That’s good news for all, regardless of color. Seek the truth and focus on kindness.

      I watched the whole interview on YouTube. He never answered the question. Conveniently it went in a totally different direction.

    According to my news source, the families at the border are not family, they are sex trafficers
