Kanye West Deletes All Pro-Trump Tweets

Kanye West Deletes All Pro-Trump Tweets

So I guess Kanye West and Donald Trump aren’t BFFs anymore? Should I cry now? Will Kanye West 2020 really happen?

Prior to his hospitalization several months ago, Kanye West went on a Pro-Trump tirade. He attacked Hillary Clinton and even postulated himself for presidency in 2020. In December, he also met with the (then) president-elect for a meeting on multicultural issues. Donald Trump had reportedly even nominated West to attend his meetings. Speaking about his meeting with Trump, West tweeted,

“These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.

“I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”

West even ended the tweet with a subtle reference to his 2024 run. He apparently didn’t want to challenge Donald Trump in 2020. Kanye West had also revealed during the now-cancelled Saint Pablo Tour that he would’ve voted for Trump. In San Jose, California, he said,

“I said something that was kind of politically correct. I told y’all I didn’t vote, right?

“What I didn’t tell you … If I were to have voted, I would have voted for Trump.”

Yet, it looks like that close relationship went downhill fast. TMZ reports that on Twitter, West has deleted all pro-Trump tweets. According to the website, the rapper is “super unhappy” (I didn’t know that was a phrase) with Donald Trump’s performance. He reportedly deleted the tweets in response to several issues, including the travel prohibition and the “Great Wall of Mexico.”

Back in November 2016, West drew fire from the public for openly supporting Trump. During the 2016 election season, Kim Kardashian West supported Hillary Clinton. Immediately following the executive order (temporarily) prohibiting entries from certain countries, Kardashian West tweeted statistics related to crime in the United States. According to the image, more Americans die each year from gun-related crimes than “Islamic jihadist immigrants.”
