Kanye West says Trump supporters are 'treated like enemies of America', admits he never voted in his life
The rapper was speaking with David Letterman on Netflix talk show 'My Next Host Needs No Introduction' that will premiere next Friday
Rapper Kanye West has once again defended his support for President Donald Trump.
The star singer claimed that liberals bully Trump supporters during his interview with David Letterman on Netflix talk show 'My Next Host Needs No Introduction' that will premiere next Friday.
“This is like my thing with Trump... We don’t have to feel the same way, but we have the right to feel what we feel,” West told Letterman.
The 'I love It' singer added that his decision to wear a MAGA (Make America Great Again) hat was a way to show people that they do not have to be afraid to express their opinions. "It's not about politics," he said, and admitted that he had never voted in his life, according to Deadline.
The comment about not voting didn't go down well with Letterman who told West, "You don't have a say in this."
"Well, you got me, you got me," West replied.
Over the course of the interview, Letterman also asked West to share his thoughts about the voter suppression efforts by the Republicans.
West refused to acknowledge any loopholes used to stop people likely to vote Democrat from having their say. He added: "Liberals bully people who are Trump supporters."
West expressed his sympathy for people who voted for Trump and said that they were "treated like enemies of America because that's what they felt," according to the Daily Mail.
In October last year West had met Trump in the Oval Office where the two shared a warm hug. He also famously wore the MAGA hat during a guest appearance on 'Saturday Night Live.'
Earlier this year, he tweeted, "Trump all day. One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black."
Recently, West made headlines after he and his celebrity wife Kim Kardashian welcomed Psalm West on May 9 via surrogacy. According to TMZ, Kim and Kanye have recently “filed for trademark protection” for their son Psalm West under Kimsaprincess Inc. The company will have beauty products, baby products like carriages, strollers, bottles duffle bags, toys, picture frames, umbrellas, clocks, watches, key chains, calendars, books, photo albums, and stationery.
