In another clip, he can be heard justifying his decision.
Kanye also reportedly spoke “specifically to black people” in the crowd and told them to “stop focusing on racism”.
“This world is racist, ok,” he said. “Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much. It’s just a f—— fact. We are in a racist country, period. Do not allow people to make us talk about that so f—— long. Let’s talk about whatever the f— we wanna talk about.”
West also admitted that he feels he will have the experience to run for President in 2020.
Yeezy has appeared with Trump before, in a way. In the video for his song “Famous,” from earlier this year, he appears in bed with a number of celebrity lookalikes, one of whom is the new President-elect.
