Kanye West still loves Trump, claims US radio host

While Shania Twain was apologising yesterday for giving the impression that she was a Trump supporter, Kanye West is seemingly doing no such thing. Hot 97.1 presenter Ebro claims that the rapper told him he loves Donald Trump. Still.

West was criticised for meeting with Trump shortly after he was elected president in 2016. Posing for photos afterwards, Trump said that the pair had been friends for “a long time” and that that was the capacity in which they were meeting. Although months later it seemed that friendship had gone sour, when West deleted all of his tweets referencing the meeting.

Ebro said on his ‘Ebro In The Morning’ show yesterday that in a discussion with West over the weekend, the rapper had told him “I do love Donald Trump”.

The conversation apparently followed a tweet from West over the weekend, in which he wrote, “I love the way Candace Owens thinks”. His support for the controversial conservative commentator has divided opinion.

Co-host on the show Peter Rosenberg later tweeted: “Biggest take away from ‘Ebro In The Morning’ today… Kanye West is still an avid Donald Trump supporter. You can process that however you like but if you’re waiting for him to say ‘my bad’ about his Trump statements – don’t hold your breath”.
