Kanye West has doubled down on his support for President Trump—reportedly telling a radio host that he “loves” the President.
The rapper’s avowed support for the President comes just days after he also praised Candace Owens—a prominent black conservative.
On Saturday, West tweeted: “I love the way Candace Owens thinks,” followed a rant against political correctness, adding: “People demonize people and then they demonize anybody who sees anything positive in someone whose been demonized” and “we have freedom of speech but not freedom of thought.”
West received a tremendous backlash from liberal pundits—causing Owens to jump to his defense.
Owens tweeted: “When @PerezHilton @TomArnold and @ShaunKing, 3 white men, rush to viciously attack the freedom of two black people who refuse to be pawns to a leftist ideology—it should ring as a wake up call to the world about who the real racists are.”
This isn’t the first time West has praised the President: last year, he claimed at a concert that he “would have voted for Trump” if he had voted in the 2016 election—and he was spotted with Trump shortly before the 2016 election at Trump Tower.
