The second leg of Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour kicked off last night in San Jose and during the show, Ye decided to express some of his political thoughts. Speaking for the first time since Donald Trump won the 2016 Presidential Election, Kanye said he didn’t vote this year but that he would have voted for Trump. The crowd responded with a series of boos.
Kanye also addressed possibly running for President in 2020 by saying he’s focused on becoming a different type of President if no one else is up for the job. According to Complex, Twitter user @RaptorJesuss was on hand at the show to pull out some major quotes from Kanye’s speech. “Rappers are philosophers of our now, celebrities are the influencers of our now, just look at the President, he wasn’t in politics and won,” Kanye apparently said to the crowd.
It’s important to remember that the love between Ye and Trump is mutual.
