Kanye Stirs Up Controversy (Again)- Says He Would Have Voted for Trump

kanye-west-donald-trump-rantKanye’s latest rant has left most of his fans confused and some of his recent Saint Pablo concertgoers pissed. During the rapper’s November 17th leg of his tour, West went on another of his infamous rants-this time choosing to focus on politics, the presidential election, and racism.

Attendees of his tour filmed the 5+ minute rant, in which he admits that he would have voted for President-Elect Donald Trump, had he voted in the recent election at all. “I said something that was kind of politically correct. I told you all I didn’t vote,” West says in footage from the show online that’s been posted online. “But I didn’t tell you – I guess I told you – but if I would have voted, I would have voted for Trump.”

He also addresses racism in America, advising black people to stop focusing on it so much. “Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism,” he ranted. “This world is racist, OK.… It’s just a f‑‑king fact. We are a racist country.”

Ye also addressed the idea of himself running for President, which he declared at 2015’s MTV VMAs- and yes, he’s still planning his 2020 campaign.

“I don’t say 2020 out of disrespect to our president at all. I’m not saying that, ‘Aw, man, that just means anybody can win.’ That’s not what I’m saying when I say 2020. I’m just saying I’ve got some ideas about the way we should connect our ideas,” West said. “We should use opposite parties – that the Republicans, that the Democrats, that everyone who ran that had an idea that people agreed with should be the collective ideas that are used to run the country. That should mean more. So it’s things that Benjamin Carson believes in that I believe in; I think that Benjamin Carson should still be a consultant. I think that Hillary Clinton should still be a consultant. I think Bill Clinton should still be a consultant. I think Obama should still be a consultant. Instead of, ‘Oh, I don’t f— with your principles so now I’m not going to give you no information that could help you help all of us.’”
