“@kanyewest is telling the truth about Rahm’s Chicago,” she wrote. “[People] do not want to hear the truth — that Chicago could be a better city for its citizens, but the establishment is corrupted." Roseanne's tweet comes after Kanye went on Twitter and claimed that Obama was not able to bring any change to Chicago during the eight years he had been the president of the united states. 

“Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed," he wrote in his tweet. Roseanne encouraged people to come forward and do something about the situation. “Let’s do something about #Chicago — all of us… instead of hurling insults and division,” she wrote.

“Let’s try efficient government and unity JUST THIS ONCE!" she added. Like Kanye, even Roseanne has been a supporter of President Donald Trump. Kanye had been in the news ever since he made the announcement of how he would love to run for president in 2024. 

Since then he has received criticism for his support for Trump. At the same time, Roseanne, too, has constantly praised the president and received backlash for doing so. During the Jerusalem Post Conference, Roseanne recalled a particular incident in which she got a phone call from Donald Trump where he congratulated her on the success of the show's reboot, Roseanne. 

Meanwhile, she also thanked Trump for moving the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem as it proved to be a great help for her mother. “I want to thank you on behalf of my mother, and all the Jewish people, for moving the embassy to Jerusalem,” she recalled telling Donald. She added that Trump told her that “a lot of presidents have promised it, but I wanted to get it done.” On the decision made by Trump about moving the embassy, Roseanne believes “it’s the first step to peace in the world, I really do.”
