Kanye West professes his ‘love’ for Trump: ‘he is my brother’
Rapper Kanye West put to bed any speculation about his feelings for President Trump on Wednesday, tweeting out that he has “love” for the real estate magnate and that he considered him a “brother.”
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought,” wrote West.
“If your friend jumps off the bridge you don’t have to do the same,” he added in one of several additional clarifications. “For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don’t tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary. I love Hillary too.”
West also confirmed that he was not in “the sunken place” after some earlier cryptic tweets that he might be there — a reference to Jordan Peele’s surprise hit “Get Out.”
“And also I’m all the way out the sunken place. And I’m not scared anymore. I’m not scared of the media. I’m not scared of the past and I’m optimistic about the future. This tweet is in love not fear,” said West.
