Kanye West sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning went ahead to delete his posts on Twitter that had been geared towards justifying his recent meet-up with President Donald Trump. He met with Trump in December who was the President-elect at the time which sparked massive criticism from both his fans and friends including John Legend.
West tweeted on December 13th, “I wanted to meet with Trump today to discuss multicultural issues.”
“These issues included bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago,” West stated in the second tweet.
He then added in the third tweet, “I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change.”
West did not seem shaken by the heavy criticism as he tweeted a day later a photo of a signed copy of the Time Magazine’s Person of the Year Edition having Trump on the top page. The tweet that featured Trump’s signature on the front cover of the issue has since been removed.
King Myers, a renowned rapper, last week released a new hit titled Propaganda aimed at getting the president impeached. The rapper claimed the song got commissioned by the West’s G.O.O.D music label; which the label denied having any involvement in. He, however, refused to give any evidence to support his claims. A source with information about the meeting told CNN that Kanye’s ultimate goal was directed towards Chicago-his hometown; that he wanted to see become safe again for the area residents.
His utterances during a concert in California surprised fans when he went on to say if he was to vote, he would have had Trump as his candidate. West’s support for Trump was welcomed with protest from fans and caused confusion in the hip-hop community as artists and activists prepare to challenge President Trump’s policies that are being viewed as an interference with the civil rights of minority groups.
