President Trump Praises Kanye West, Says People Should Stick to Their Guns [VIDEO]

President Donald Trump shared his admiration and respect for Kanye West, who has been enthusiastically and openly speaking his mind on social media with support for the President.

On Thursday morning, the President called in to the morning show Fox & Friends to talk about recent goings-on in Washington DC and social media. Following a brief discussion about the recent visit by France’s Emmanuel Macron to the White House, Trump weighed in on Yeezy’s vocal support for him and touched on country singer Shania Twain’s recent backtrack about her support of him.

“He’s got good taste,” Trump told co-host Ashley Earhardt, who brought up Kanye, who considers Trump a brother.

Kanye has been incredibly outspoken in his support of President Trump this week—an event that caused leftists to lose their collective minds in response. Numerous publications panned the rap artist for expressing his views, with the Washington Post referring him as an “alt-right darling.”

“You know, I have known Kayne a little bit and I get along with Kanye,” Trump continued, referring to his December 2016 meeting with Kanye following his victory at the polls.

Exclusive Interview: President Trump on Fox & Friends

President Trump calls into ‘Fox & Friends’ to discuss Ronny Jackson’s withdrawal, Michael Cohen and the possible North Korea summit. Also, the president says he is disappointed in his Justice Department, calls Comey’s book a big mistake and thanks Kanye West for his support.

“I get along with a lot of people, frankly,” added Trump. “But Kanye looks and he sees black unemployment at the lowest it’s been in the history of our country, okay? He sees Hispanic unemployment at the lowest it’s been in the history of our country, he sees, by the way, female unemployment, women unemployment, the lowest it’s been in now almost 19 years. He sees that stuff and he’s smart and he says, ‘You know what, Trump is doing a much better job than the Democrats did.’”

The President also weighed in on how he thought the reason African Americans often vote Democrat is because they’ve been socially conditioned to do so.

“You know I think it was just a custom,” he said. “People don’t realize, you know if you go back to the Civil War it was the republicans that really did the [abolition of slavery]. Lincoln was a Republican. Somehow it changed over the years and I will say I really believe it is changing back.”

Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy pivoted the discussion to the topic of Shania Twain, who was criticized after she tweeted her support of the President.

“I’ll tell you what happened,” replied Trump. “Shania, who I think is terrific, but she made a mistake by sort of saying I wish I didn’t go public with it, but we know how she feels. But people have done that and they’re amazed at what happens to their business because we have tremendous support. We have tremendous fans.”

“If I ever called for a rally in Washington, D.C. we’d have millions of people coming into Washington because they love what’s happening,” continued the President. “So when I see a Kanye sticking to his guns, or when I see others—and there are plenty of others—sticking to their guns and coming out and saying… you have a young lady who’s been very much in the news in the last three or four days ["Candace Owens” Doocy interjected] because she’s fantastic. She’s like the hottest thing out there now. You have people do that they become much more popular.

“Remember, we won the election and we won it easily,” Trump concluded.
