Kanye West, once a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump, is now backing away from the former star of “The Apprentice.”
As we previously reported, West said “would’ve voted for Trump” during a November stop in San Jose on his “Saint Pablo Tour.”
On December 13, 2016, the rapper met with the then president-elect atTrump Tower in New York City. When the two emerged in the lobby following their 15-minute chat, both smiled and shared a hug.
Trump told reporters that West was a “good man.” He later added that they have been friends “a long time.”
“I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues,” Yeezy later tweeted. “Those issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums and violence in Chicago.”
TMZ reports that the G.O.O.D. Music CEO, has now scrubbed all mentions of Trump from his Twitter. According to the website, West is not happy with Trump’s actions since he’s taken office. He’s particularly upset about the executive order the president signed on January 27, 2017, establishing extreme vetting of people coming to the U.S. from seven-Muslim majority countries.
