"Thanks to Kanye West and the fact that he is willing to tell the TRUTH, a new and great fact: African-American unemployment is the lowest ever recorded in the history of our country, so honor this." Thanks Kanye for your support It's making a big difference! "Trump tweeted Friday afternoon.

In Kimmel, West talked about being a Trump supporter and also being black and famous.

After some initial talks about West's line of sneakers and if West would design uniforms for Trump's Space Force, Kimmel pointed to the fact that West is a Trump supporter and asked, "Do you think he's a good president?"

West did not answer the question. Instead, he referred to the background of why he has chosen to verbally support the president.

"It's funny, in this world we live in, there are two main driving forces, and I tweet about it all the time: it's love or fear, and you can not explain love," West said.

"My cousin is locked up for murder, and I love him so he did something wrong, but I still love him."

West went on to say that before the 2016 elections, "as a musician, African-American in Hollywood, all these different things, everyone around me tried to choose my candidate and then they told me every time he said" he liked Trump because he could not say it out loud or my career would end, I would be expelled from the black community, because blacks, we are supposed to have a monolithic thought; we can only be democrats. "

While on tour in November 2016, West proclaimed that, although he did not vote, he would have voted for Trump. Four days later, after reports of increasingly strange behavior, he was voluntarily hospitalized for stress and exhaustion.

"When I left the hospital," West said Thursday, "I had lost confidence, so I did not have the confidence to face the world and possible violent reaction and it took me a year and a half to have the confidence to stand up and put on the hat regardless of the consequences. "

West went on to say that wearing the red hat of Make America Great Again in public was not about support policies, "because I'm not a politician like that", but about the idea of ​​"overcoming fear and doing what you felt", without import what someone said. "

The hat, about which he tweeted and was seen dressing in April 2018, was a statement intended to tell others that "you can not intimidate me." Liberals can not intimidate me, news can not intimidate me, the hip-hop community can not intimidate me. Because at that point, if I'm afraid of being me, I'm not anymore. That's what makes Ye & # 39;

As for the anger of the people in Trump and his policies, West said: "When I see people just like, go to the president, it's like, why not try to love? We can spread this nuclear bomb of hatred in which we are as a society thinking of everyone as our family. "

The mention of the family made Kimmel comment that Trump's immigration policies have seen families "torn apart" at the border in recent months.

"I think we can not forget that, whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matters," Kimmel said.

"I mean, how famous and so powerfully he said," George Bush does not care about blacks. "I wonder what makes you think Donald Trump does it, or any other people, at all?

West was silent at that point, although it is not clear if he was contemplating an answer or if he also refused to answer that question.

After a brief and uncomfortable silence, Kimmel cut to a commercial break.

The question of whether Trump is a good president or whether he cares about black people during the interview was not raised again.

West did, however, reveal her favorite categories of pornography and talked about being bipolar, sending her daughter to the fashion camp and her new album.

In April, at the insistence of his wife Kim Kardashian, West tweeted: "I do not agree with everything Trump does, I do not agree 100% with anyone but me."
