He just tweeted a storm praising Donald Trump, but Kanye West's relationship with Trump against Barack Obama is a bit confusing. Kanye's frantic Twitter activity came after the rapper told Hot-97 radio host Ebro Darden, "I love Donald Trump." Kanye also criticized Obama and defended the time when he praised Candace Owens, a conservative YouTuber who claims racism is a thing of the past.
As a result of the disagreements, many of Kanye's fans became unhappy with him. For some it is amazing that the same Kanye, who said, "George Bush does not care about black people," is the same man who is now cheering Trump, who called the African nations "sh * thole countries". But when exactly did Kanye join Team Trump? And what's wrong with his alleged beef with Obama? As it turns out, his story with the two politicians is not that easy.
Kanye told Darden he was disappointed with Obama for allegedly having had contact with Obama for years and "not being able to achieve anything." Trump, on the other hand, gave a meeting to Kanye and the two were shown together in 201
Kanye's comments on Trump and Obama, however, continue to decline, like before, when he had a "Make America Great Again" cap.
At that time, Trump was just a reality TV star and real estate mogul, and not a leader of the United States of America, Kanye references him in his texts. See below, Exhibits A, B and C.
In a 2005 freestyle on the YouTube channel Tim Westwood TV:
I'm not a clown like Ronald
Uh, more like Donald
Trump, with like I break it
Then in a 2009 remix of "Flashing Lights:"
You've fired mothaf * cka Donald Trump, (force term)
And finally in 2010, "So Horrified" with JAY-Z, Pusha T, Swizz Beatz, RZA and CyHi The Prynce:
Balding Donald Trump takes dollars from you
Baby, you're fired, your girlfriend hired
Kanye did not drop Trump's name Any of his lyrics since Trump was a politician, but in the video for 2016 "Famous", Kanye had a naked Trump actor in this memorable lineup of nude celebrities sharing a bed.
As for Obama, Kanye has mentioned the other Chicagoer, and that does not sound so effusive. In "Power", One of the Hit Singles of 2010 My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy:
They say I'm the abomination of Obama's Nation
Well, that's a pretty bad way of doing that Talk to Start  The song debuted a year after Obama was caught calling Kanye a "jack * s". An ABC reporter had inadvertently tweeted (and then deleted) the off-the-record part of an interview with Obama. According to MTV, the original tweet said: "President Obama just called Kanye West a 'Jacks' for his breakout at VMAs when Taylor Swift won, now is the presidential election."
Later in an interview in 2012 with The Atlantic Obama repeated his remark about Kanye. "He's a jack," said Obama reporter David Samuels. "But he is talented." When it comes to music, Obama prefers JAY-Z, but he still said a few nice words for Kanye: "… I like Kanye, he's a Chicago, Smart, he's very talented."
And although he has failed over his attempts to meet Obama, Kanye and his family have been portrayed smiling at the Obama several times. Even if they had some pleasant interactions, his tweets make it clear that he does not necessarily agree with everything that someone does.
At a concert in San Jose in the election year, Kanye said he voted for Trump. He tells the crowd in a video clip from ABC News:
I said something that was politically correct. I told you that I did not vote, right? What I did not tell you … if I had voted, I would have voted on Trump. That does not mean that I do not think Black Lives Matter that I do not believe that I do not believe that I believe in women's rights.
In his recent Twitter activity, under his praise for Trump, Kanye also turned his attention to Obama. "Obama was in office for eight years and nothing changed in Chicago," the rapper said critically Complex .
His politically-charged comments have been a source of concern to some supporters, but when his wife Kim Kardashian West pointed out on Twitter, mental health should not be a casually jumbled joke. A Hillary Clinton supporter herself, Kim K., defended Kanye's remarks.
Kanye has always been one who could voice his opinion and is not afraid to cause controversy. Therefore, his comment should not sound so unusual. But just as his music has evolved over the years, his views on Trump and Obama may one day change.
