Finally!! Kanye West Responds To Donald Trump Question
It has been three weeks since a question was asked Kanye West on why he thinks the president cares about black people and the usual vocal artist was silent. At the time he said he wasn’t given an opportunity to respond.
The question was repeated again by a US radio station after a pause, he finally replied: “I feel that he cares about the way black people feel about him.”
Kanye told 107.5 WGCI Chicago that Mr Trump knows he needs the support of black people.
“He would like for black people to like him like they did when he was cool in the rap songs and all this, 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.”
West added, “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 so that’s something he’s going to work towards.”
Jimmy Kimmel commented on West’s silence earlier in the month in an interview with The Daily Beast.
“I think Kanye is kind of in a perpetual state of being interviewed and he shares his thoughts constantly. So the idea that he needed to come up with the answer right there on the spot isn’t necessarily something I agree with,” said Kimmel.
“I felt that his silence answered the question in some ways.”
Perhaps Kanye West’s recent silence and thoughtful pause before a response is a sign of maturity.
