Kanye West saw a little bit of himself in Donald Trump — a guy who stirs things up and gets people talking — and that’s why he’s confessed his admiration for the Prez-elect’s campaign, NOT necessarily his policies.
Sources close to ‘Ye tell us his Thursday night confession about Trump was mainly about his ability to start a movement via not so conventional or politically correct methods.
Our source says Kanye’s a big-time believer in conflict bringing change, and thinks Trump’s campaign will spark conversation on both sides. As for the Donald’s controversial comments about Mexicans and Muslims … we’re told ‘Ye’s not down with any of that.
As for the reports he rapped, “I hope they build the wall, I hope they get rid of them all” during the San Jose concert … we’re told it never happened, purely an Internet rumor catching fire.
