President-elect Donald Trump has many celebrity supporters, but Kanye West might be the most shocking supporter of all.
According to the U.K. Independent, rapper West announced his feelings about Trump during his Saint Pablo Tour show in San Jose.
West, who famously announced at the 2015 MTV VMAs that he would be running for president in 2020, told his fans that he did not vote in the 2016 presidential election.
He said that if he did vote, the choice was clear. “I would have voted on Trump,” he said.
That comment began an almost 40-minute rant about politics. “This is my platform and I’m going to talk about the paradigm shift that’s happening right now,” West exclaimed.
Not surprisingly, West’s opinions enraged his audience. Some fans threw Yeezys at West, while others booed the famous rapper. But West simply picked up a shoe, signed it, and gave it back to the angry fan.
West didn’t seem to mind the criticism. “Whether you voted for Hillary or Trump, this is a safe space for both of you,” he encouraged fans.
The star also spoke to a member of his audience. “Stop focusing on racism!” he said.
Kanye’s admission of admiration for Trump shocked many. West’s wife, reality star Kim Kardashian, and her entire family promoted Democrat Hillary Clinton for president, often posting #I’mWithHer on social media.
West, who is normally known for his ego and pompous behavior, again confirmed his decision to run for president in 2020.
