Kanye West has opened up about his support for Donald Trump.
The rapper appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! for the first time in almost five years and spoke about everything, from his Yeezys to Kim having a meeting with the president.
When asked if he was worried to leave Kim and Donald in the same room together, the rapper laughed and said, “He is a player.”
“As a musician, an African American guy on Hollywood, all these different things, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me,” the 41-year old told Jimmy.
“And they told me every time I said I liked Trump I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over, I’d get kicked out of the black community because blacks are only supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only be Democrats.”
Kanye has been very vocal about his support for Donald Trump and even tweeted a picture of his signed ‘Make America Great Again’ hat earlier this year.

Things got awkward when Jimmy asked Kanye why he thinks the president cares about black people, or any people.
“Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are what matter. You so famously, and so powerfully said, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.” What makes you think that Donald Trump does or any people at all?”
Jimmy was met with silence as the rapper thought carefully about his reply.
The host then quickly announced a break, before Kanye could answer the question.
Kim appeared on the chat-show last month and also spoke about her husband’s opinion on the president.
“I always respect what another person thinks and to make it clear, when we would talk about it and would talk about policies, he doesn’t necessarily agree with (Trump’s) policies but he likes his personality and how he made it to be president when everyone really underestimated him.”
