Kanye West has reminded fans that he still strongly supports Donald Trump and the Republican party, just in case they forgot.
The rap mogul brought his Sunday Service to Salt Lake City, Utah on Sunday and during the event, defended his friend again. He said he’s never made a decision based on his skin color and so he won’t be doing that when it comes to his support for a political party and the President.
“That’s the Republican party that freed the slaves,” Kanye says in a video clip shared reporter Hunter Schwarz. “People wanna call me a coon ’cause I chose my right. And we got the right, right? We got a right to our opinions, right? You Black, so you can’t like Trump. I ain’t never made a decision based on my color. That’s a form of slavery, mental slavery.”
