Kanye West is a fan of President Donald Trump. That much we know, but Kanye also wants to bring the black community into openness to the Republican party as well.
This kind of mainstream openness to Trump has earned West his fair share of hate from people who once looked up to him or called him a friend. Daz Dillinger openly put out a hit on Kanye for the Crips gang to follow up on, and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif) suggested very Orwellianly that someone should basically mind Kanye to make sure he doesn’t express pro-Republican/pro-Trump opinions in the future.
Sadly for Waters, West is still speaking out about his open arms to Trump, and on Wednesday told a radio station that Trump wants to be a great president for the black community.
“I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him, and he would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool in the rap songs and all this,” West told WGCI 107.5.
“And he will do the things that are necessary to make that happen because he’s got an ego like all the rest of us, and he wants to be the greatest president, and he knows that he can’t be the greatest president without the acceptance of the black community,” West continued. “So it’s something he’s gonna work towards, but we’re gonna have to speak to him.”

Love him or hate him, West’s willingness to venture to the other side of the aisle is one of the braver things we’ve seen in 2018. For decades, the black community has been overwhelmingly Democrat, and the Democrats have assumed that if one is black then they must be a Democrat, treating those who do not subscribe to the leftist doctrines as public pariahs. If West isn’t the perfect example, then you can see how individuals like Thomas Sowell, Lawrence B. Jones, Clarence Thomas, and Allen West are treated by the media.
The Republican party, or even the Libertarian party, have a lot to offer the black community. It’s good to see that West is opening up the door for good public opinion of the right. No one party owns a race. We fought a very bloody war to end that kind of thing.
