Kanye West visited Jimmy Kimmel Live!, where he continued to defend his support for President Donald Trump. West first announced that support by tweeting a photo of himself wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.
Even though he received a lot of blowback from his peers, West kept expressing his affection for the president and his “dragon energy.” In fact, he thought it was a shame that more people don’t love Trump.
“When I see people just even like go at the president, it’s like, why not try love?” he said.
In response to West’s comments about giving Trump a chance and being kind to one another, Kimmel said, “That’s a beautiful thought, but in literal terms there are families being torn apart at the border of this country.”
Kimmel then asked West a pointed question: “You so famously and so powerfully said, ‘George Bush doesn’t care about black people.’ It makes me wonder — what makes you think that Donald Trump does, or any people at all?”
West didn’t respond to Kimmel’s question. After a few seconds, the host threw to a commercial break. When the show returned, the two were discussing another topic. West did not discuss Trump again.
