Kanye West Booed As He Declares Trump Support

By HHL Editors

Kanye West didn't vote in the 2016 Presidential election.

But he told the crowd last night in San Jose, California that if he did he would have cast a ballot for Trump.

It's a fairly bold statement to make, given 'Ye's fanbase. Even bolder to say it in Cali -- state which went 2 to 1 for Hillary.

Kanye's declaration of voter preferences was met with boos and cries of "I want that old Kanye." He explained to the skeptical crowd why he found Trump's messaging attractive.

There's methods, non political methods of speaking, that I like, that I feel were very futuristic. And that style and that method of communication has proven that it can beat a political correct way of communication. And I fuck with that," Ye' said.
West went on to argue that he thought Trump's election was good because it would bring white racism out into the open.

He also had a message for black people:

Specifically to black people, stop focusing on racism,” he said. “This world is racist, OK? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It’s just a fucking fact: we are in a racist country. Period. Do not allow people to make us talk about that so fucking long.”

Despite his Trump support, West implied he'd still be running against The Donald in 2020.

Is he any more likely to have your vote after last night?

Twitter wasn't very impressed.

Although Trump supporters were pleased.
