[스페셜경제= Dongsu Kim] After taking a break from politics, Grammy award-winning rapper Kanye West and self-proclaimed free thinking has once again weighed in on the politics, reaffirming his support of U.S. President Donald Trump in a tweet saying: “Trump all day.”
West, after announcing last year around October on Twitter that he would be distancing himself from politics, has once more spoken up on his support of the current president. According to a report by Fox News Network, the tweet had been posted by the singer on Twitter just this Tuesday.

In the tweet, he said simply, “Trump all day” but backed this up with follow-up tweets where he dragged Democrats and stood by his support of Trump. In another tweet he wrote: "One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black.”

This also corresponds with his comment while he was in the company of the president himself sometime in mid-October. This comment being the one where he claimed that wearing the hat had made him feel like “Superman.”

"They tried to scare me not to wear this hat. When I put this hat on, it made me feel like Superman — my favorite superhero. You made a Superman cape for me." Had been the full comment.

Additionally, West also claimed that his decision to support Trump was influenced by the fact that about 90% of  Blacks were Democrats, something he labeled as a form of “control.” After that, West also simply tweeted “2024”, which could be a possible reference to the next year of presidential elections.

Interestingly, before his political resurfacing, it was also in October that West announced that he would be distancing himself from politics, saying that his “eyes are now wide open” and lamented that he had been used to “spread messages” that were not in alignment with his own beliefs.
