Kanye West criticises Obama’s Presidency on Twitter
 Add to favorites

Kanye West has appeared to criticise Obama’s Presidential record on Twitter, claiming that “nothing changed” in his home city of Chicago during the former US President’s eight years in office.

The rapper – who has been praising Trump on the social media platform in recent days – was famously called a “jackass” by then-President Obama in 2009 following the Taylor Swift controversy at the MTV VMAs. Obama later added in 2012 that while West was indeed “a jackass”, he was also “smart” and “very talented”.

On Wednesday (April 25), Kanye tweeted: “Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed.” He also promised to “build new homes in Chicago” with Chance The Rapper.

Chance, meanwhile, spoke out to offer his support to West in a series of tweets, saying that Kanye was “in a great space and not affected by folk tryna question his mental or physical health”.

“Black people don’t have to be democrats,” Chance added. “Next President gon be independent”.

Talked to him two days ago. He’s in a great space and not affected by folk tryna question his mental or physical health. Same Ye from the Vmas, same Ye from the telethon. https://t.co/2zY3KpllV2

Also yesterday (April 25), Kanye referred to Trump on Twitter as “my brother”, and said that the two share “dragon energy”.

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.

After appearing to clarify that he does indeed “love” Trump, Kanye then said that he also “loved” the President’s opponent in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, and that he wasn’t “a Democrat or a Republican”.

If your friend jumps off the bridge you don't have to do the same. Ye being Ye is a fight for you to be you. For people In my life the idea of Trump is pretty much a 50 50 split but I don't tell a Hillary supporter not to support Hillary I love Hillary too.

I love when people have their own ideas. You don't have to be allowed anymore. Just be.

Love who you want to love. That's free thought. I'm not even political. I'm not a democrat or a republican

Following that string of tweets, West then revealed that his wife, Kim Kardashian West, had called him after reading his posts and wanted him to publicly state that he doesn’t “agree with everything Trump does”.

my wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don't agree with everything Trump does. I don't agree 100% with anyone but myself.

Two hours after posting that message, Kanye uploaded a selfie of himself – along with Universal Music Group Chairman/CEO Sir Lucian Grainge and YouTube’s Global Head of Music Lyor Cohen – wearing an infamous ‘Make America Great Again’ hat.

That tweet provoked a strong response from many of his followers who slammed Kanye for wearing the Trump-affiliated hat – which the President had, of course, signed for him.

my MAGA hat is signed ???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? pic.twitter.com/DrDHJybS8V

Shortly after these pictures were uploaded, Trump registered his approval for West’s recent Twitter activity by writing “Thank you Kanye, very cool!”

The artist has also spoken further today on his apparent ambition to run for US President in 2024 – although Kardashian later tweeted: “Kanye will never run in the race of popular opinion, and we know that, and that’s why I love him and respect him, and in a few years when someone else says the same exact thing, but they aren’t labeled the way he is, and you will all praise them!

“Kanye is years ahead of his time,” she added.

West’s new album is expected in June and will be the follow-up to 2016’s ‘The Life Of Pablo’. Here’s everything we know about the release so far.
