It’s official: Kanye West will be voting for 4 more years of President Trump!
In a lengthy interview with GQ magazine, West confirmed that he will be casting his ballot in support of the president in November.
Despite all the pop culture backlash he endured for wearing the iconic red Make America Great Again hat, West assures people that he is still with Team Trump.
Similar to the president, Kanye doesn’t seek approval from the gatekeepers in the media.
He is a free thinker who can see what President Trump has achieved for all Americans, especially the black community.
Trump and his reelection campaign have vowed to pursue the black and minority vote more than any other Republican candidate in history.
If Kanye West’s “endorsement” is any indication, President Trump may be poised to make history once again.
More details on Kanye’s statement below:
Kanye remains one of the most iconic figures in American media today.
While most celebrities are outspoken liberals or conservatives who stay quiet to protect their careers, Kanye is breaking ranks to be his own individual.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Kanye refuses to be surrounded by people who have their own agenda or ulterior motives:
"I'm not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over," he says of his choice.
Kanye West will vote for Donald Trump to stay in office four more years this November.
The musician, designer and entrepreneur told GQ in a lengthy series of interviews published Wednesday that despite all the waves it created when he donned a Make America Great Again hat, he remains with Team Trump.
When asked whether he would be less vocal this election season, West responded, "No, I'm definitely voting this time. And we know who I'm voting on. And I'm not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over. Because guess what: I'm still here!"
He continued, "I was told my career would end if I wasn't with [Hillary Clinton]. What kind of campaign is that, anyway? That's like if Obama's campaign was 'I'm with black.' What's the point of being a celebrity if you can't have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion! You know?"
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Kanye said that the economy, real estate in particular, is better under President Trump than it ever was under Obama.
Kanye also said that he doesn't want to be "told by white people which white person I can vote for."
Kanye's revelation has received a lot of support and praise on social media.
The Trump coalition continues to grow and break the expectations of conventional political wisdom.
Georgia Democrat Vernon Jones, for example, recently broke ranks with the Democrat party to endorse Donald Trump as well.
While the media and Democratic leaders attempt to politicize the COVID-19 pandemic, people are able to see through the propaganda and see the positive results that President Trump is delivering.
According to Page Six, Kanye acknowledges the potential weight his support of the president may have in this election cycle:
The rapper went on to respond to those who thought his career would crash-and-burn after coming out as a Trump supporter.
“I’m not going to be told by the people around me and the people that have their agenda that my career is going to be over. Because guess what: I’m still here! ‘Jesus Is King’ was No. 1!”
“I was told my career would end if I wasn’t with [Hillary Clinton],” he continued. “What kind of campaign is that, anyway? That’s like if Obama’s campaign was ‘I’m with black.’ What’s the point of being a celebrity if you can’t have an opinion? Everybody make their own opinion! You know?”
West most recently spoke of his admiration for Trump to the Wall Street Journal, telling the magazine that he refuses to vote Democrat simply because it is expected of him as a black man.
“I’m a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine?” West told WSJ. “It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous, when I would walk in a restaurant and people would look at you like you were going to steal something. ‘This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat.’”
The “Yeezy” founder came out in support of Trump in 2018, calling the leader his “brother.” The pair famously met at the White House in October of the same year to discuss prison reform, mental health and racism in the US.
“You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” Kanye tweeted. “We are both dragon energy. He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.”
Last summer, West told talk show host David Letterman that he “never voted in my life.”
Everyone's first vote is always memorable, and we're happy that Kanye will be casting his vote to reelect President Trump!
Though many liberals try to paint the red MAGA hat as a hate symbol, Kanye is proud to wear the hat.
The iconic red hat is clearly a symbol of the greatness and potential in America for all Americans.
While Democrats would prefer to run campaigns of division and undermining a duly elected president, Trump is focused on the lives and livelihoods of the American people.
