Kim Kardashian Defends Kanye West, Slams Those Trying to 'Demonize' Him

Rapper Kanye West caused quite the controversy on Twitter Wednesday by proclaiming his support of President Trump.

In a follow-up tweet (apparently prompted by his wife, Kim Kardashian, who you might also have heard of), the rapper said he did not agree with everything Mr Trump does.

West announced a seven-song solo album last week, along with a joint album with frequent collaborator Kid Cudi, both due in June.

West later tweeted a picture of himself wearing one of Mr Trump's red hats emblazoned with his signature. "I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself", West said in the tweet. "Because he loves Trump!"

Kanye West was clear to tell his almost 28 million followers that he also loves Hillary Clinton, the Democrat defeated by Mr Trump.

West met the president-elect at Trump Tower in Manhattan in December 2016, whereafter Trump told reporters, "We've been friends for a long time". Ebro Darden recalled a conversation he had with Kanye allegedly stating his "love " for Trump.

Mary's Hospital is the same step Kate and William took after Kate gave birth to George, in 2013, and Charlotte, in 2015. As a boy, the Duke and Duchess's third child is not expected to create that same kind of excitement, experts said.

West, whose wife was an open supporter of Hillary Clinton, has seemingly been tweeting in support of President Trump.

Earlier this week, West lavished praise on another famously outspoken billionaire: Tesla's Elon Musk. Amid reports that West has also been feuding with his mother-in-law Kris Jenner, the Kardashian matriarch exclusively tells E!

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.

It's not the first instance of West and Trump together in the public eye. "And I won't stop fighting until all black Americans see that", she wrote on April 21. "Most people (including myself) have very different feelings & opinions about this", the 37-year-old reality star wrote.

Jordan Peele, the director of Get Out, even got involved after people suggested Kanye was stuck in The Sunken Place.

That tweet went on to say Mr. West was the "same Ye from the Vmas, same Ye from the telethon", referring to some famous moments when Mr. West spoke out about politics in a less GOP-friendly way.
