The year has changed. But the politically incendiary Kanye West? Maybe not that much.
The rapper, who just months ago said he would distance himself & # 39; distant & # 39; of politics, jumped back Tuesday with a tweet that confirmed his support for President Donald Trump.
"Trump all day", wrote West when 2019 was under way.
"One of my favorites of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can not tell me what to do because I'm black," continued a tweet. "Blacks are 90% Democrats … That sounds like control for me", read another.
In a follow-up tweet, West simply stated: "2024" – a possible reference to the presidential elections held that year.
In October, the outspoken Trump fan said he had enough of politics. West told his Twitter followers that his "eyes are now wide open" after he felt he was being used to "spread messages" he did not believe in.
It is unclear what caused the rapper to announce his "distance", but in those days he called "Blexit" – a campaign developed by the conservative activist Candace Owens with the aim of leading African-American voters away from the Democratic Party.
Weeks ago lunched West with Trump and met him in the Oval Office. With a red "MAGA" cap, West praised the president and dealt with scattered topics, including Superman, the 13th and the second change, and North Korea.

Referring to Trumps signature hat, West said, "They were trying to scare me not to wear this hat." When I put on this hat, I felt Superman – my favorite superhero. " You made a Superman cape for me. "
On the whole, West was a compliment to the president, and at one point he even said he loved him and walked around the Resolute Desk to hug him.
