Kardashian West wrote. "Kanye is years ahead of his time".

But less than an hour later Kanye followed up with another tweet, a request from his wife Kim Kardashian West, a critic of Trump, who wanted him to clarify that he does not agree with everything Trump does.

The rapper shocked many when he voiced his admiration for the President, writing that the two are both "dragon energy". He is my brother.

After going on a Twitter spree saying that he is all about love and has no political affiliations, he said, "I'm all the way out the sunken place". That's what makes us individuals. "And I independently think that Kanye has lost his mind".

After tweeting a picture of himself wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat, Kanye seemed to share a screenshot of a text he received from John Legend, and John didn't sound happy.

In a tweet on Thursday, West wrote that while hate is a similar emotion to love, "hate is not the answer".

After West and Trump's Twitter-fest, Legend took to his account on Wednesday to say "artists can't be blind to the truth", though he didn't mention West by name.

The tabloid was apparently invited to West HQ after Kanye took issue with one of their reports that claimed he was "erratic or in the middle of a meltdown" - with West instead keen to show that he was making good on his word that new music was on the way.

Judge Blocks Trump Administration From Ending DACA, Rules Program Must Continue
The ruling was the third in recent months against the Trump administration's rollback of DACA. There were 689,800 active DACA recipients as of September 4, 2017, according to the U.S.

Trump weighed in with his approval on Twitter not long after, while West talked up the possibility of a meeting with vindictive billionaire Trump supporter Peter Thiel.

"Now when he spoke out about Trump..." You have people do that they become much more popular. But this is HIS opinion.

After tweeting his thoughts on Trump, Kanye revealed Kim had called him to make one thing clear.

An artist who deviates from the extremist leftist narratives pushed out by many of today's A-list stars is often ridiculed by the media or even denied work opportunities.

And if that wasn't enough, Donald Trump Jr. sent out a tweet that used Hillary Clinton's campaign slogan to support Kardashian's and West's tweets.

The pair met in Trump Tower in New York City after Trump won the election. West met with Trump at Trump Tower back in August 2017, just a few days after West came back into the public atmosphere after a hospitalization, according to CNN.

But West's string of Twitter tweets supporting Trump's presidency didn't go over to well with some of his celebrity friends.

"Somehow it changed over the years, and I will say, I really believe it's changing back", he said after citing how former President Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.
