TRENDING: Kanye West tweets his support for President Trump

Posted April 26, 2018

Rapper and entertainer Kanye West lit the internet on fire Wednesday when he doubled down on his support for President Trump, though he made it clear that he disagreed with some of his policies.

Kanye West's latest tweets about President Donald Trump have attracted a lot of attention online, including from the president himself.

Please don't ask us to explain what "dragon energy" is.

In incessant, needling tweets much in the style of Trump, the 40-year-old rapper and designer announced two new albums, boasted of sales of his shoe line - and voiced admiration for a conservative television commentator, Candace Owen. Kanye said that he doesn't "agree 100% with anyone but myself". "Because he loves Trump!"

"I love when people have their own ideas", West added. He drew controversy back in 2016 for meeting with the then-president elect and telling concertgoers that he "would have voted for Trump." .

The reality TV star and mother of West's three children also tweeted to defend her husband's right to take the stance on Mr Trump.

West, 40, also criticised Barack Obama and vowed that the "mob" can not stop his support of his "brother", Mr Trump, in a flurry of tweets on Wednesday.

Earlier this week, West lavished praise on another famously outspoken billionaire: Tesla's Elon Musk.

"I love that great, brilliant artists have the power to imagine a better future", he tweeted.

Kardashian also slammed recent reports that West has been behaving erratically.

West has previously voiced support for Trump and paid a visit to Trump Tower before Trump's inauguration 18 months ago.

West has also raised eyebrows in recent days for praising Candace Owens, an African-American pro-Trump activist who has nearly 200,000 subscribers on YouTube.

"So quick to label him as having mental health issues for just being himself when he has always been expressive is not fair", she wrote.

Ebro Darden of New York's Hot 97 said Monday that he spoke with West, who said (among other things) that he does "love Trump". He never said he agrees with his politics.
