Kanye West doubles down on support of Donald Trump

Kanye West doubles down on support of Donald Trump

"Classism is like dwelling on a bookshelf".

In an interview with the Wall Street Journal that was published on Wednesday (March 25), Kanye said that he hated being stigmatized by people because he's Black and a Trump supporter.

Magazine, the 42-year-old rapper addresses the backlash he received for standing by Trump. "You can see in my eyes there's not one bit of fear". Apparently, he called Trump's advisor Jared Kushner and was able to speak directly to the President about the situation within an hour. "I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky". He's said they have a shared "dragon energy" - and stands by that as well as the relationship he forged with the reality star politico.

He also talked about the role he played in working with Trump to ensure A$AP Rocky was freed from Swedish custody previous year.

"I had an actual mental breakdown from attempting to put together all of the pieces", he said.

Now, amid the coronavirus pandemic, he asked his design team if it's possible to start making masks and gowns as the plea for those items for medical professionals continues.

While it's probably the last thing you're concerned about right now, Kanye West is getting a few things off chest when it comes to his MAGA hat. "I'm just a doer", West explains. "You don't have to agree with Trump but the mob can't make me not love him", Kanye tweeted months ahead of the pair's second official meeting.

The plans also include a skate park, and West "mentioned something called a "hydrogen pulse detonation pump" as a shower technology".
