Rapper Kanye West made major headlines earlier this year after openly endorsing President Donald Trump. Trump took notice and sent West a signed Make America Great Again Hat.

. . .West explained his decision to publicly support the President and his overall philosophy about free thinking.
“Just as a musician, African-American, guy out in Hollywood, all these different things, you know, everyone around me tried to pick my candidate for me. And then told me every time I said I liked Trump that I couldn’t say it out loud or my career would be over,” West said. “Liberals can’t bully me, news can’t bully me, the hip-hop community, they can’t bully me. Because at that point, if I’m afraid to be me, I’m no longer Ye. That’s what makes Ye.”
