Kanye West Criticizes Obama And Praises President Trump
American Rapper and Songwriter, Kanye West remained defiant on Wednesday amidst mounting backlash from fans over the rapper's positive words about President Donald Trump, tweeting a picture of himself wearing a "Make America Great Again" hat and criticizing former President Barack Obama.
He tweeted, "Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed. You don't have to agree with trump but the mob can't make me not love him. 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."
And Trump tweeted, quoting West's tweet, "Thank you Kanye, very cool! Trump also tweeted, "MAGA," which stands for "Make America Great Again," in response to a photo West tweeted of his Trump-signed hat.
The series of tweets comes after fans lamented a report this week from Hot 97 radio host Ebro Darden that West recently told him, "I love Donald Trump," and defended a previous tweet in which the rapper complimented conservative commentator Candace Owens.
But less than an hour later West followed up with another tweet -- an apparent request from his wife Kim Kardashian West, who is a critic of Trump -- and clarified that he doesn't agree with everything Trump does.
