Kanye West Praised President Trump In A Twitter Rant & Kim Kardashian, Chance The Rapper, Trump Himself & More Responded

Kanye West’s return to Twitter certainly hasn’t been uneventful — for both the rapper himself, and the President of the United States. 

Kanye went beyond his normal motivational quips in a series of tweets on Wednesday. The rapper touched on topics like his Yeezy apparel company, the firing of his former manager Scooter Braun, the sunken place, and eventually, his love for Trump (and Hillary Clinton).

This seemingly didn’t fit well with his wife, Kim Kardashian. Kanye tweeted to clarify he doesn’t fully agree with anyone (including Trump) but himself.

Kim later chimed in to address her differing views on Trump, while also defending Kanye against claims from media outlets that his mental health is suffering.

Kanye’s Trump tweets didn’t stop after a call from Kim, though. He later posted a photo in a “Make America Great Again” hat, and a separate one of a Trump-signed hat. 

And then… the president replied. TWICE.

Kanye quickly became a trending topic on Twitter, but while Trump supporters were happy to see someone of Kanye’s prominence praise the president, others weren’t. 

Chance The Rapper, on the other hand, jumped to Kanye’s defense. 

After tweeting that black people don’t have to be democrats, Chance took a brief break before returning with two more tweets. 

Now to see what tomorrow holds in the Twitter-verse. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
