Trump and Kanye: Is the Bromance Over?

Trump and Kanye: Is the Bromance Over?by 👩‍💻 Alice Monroe

While US President Donald Trump may have had his detractors during his inaugural term as Commander in Chief, he continues to court a wealth of support. Among his supporters, up until recently, was rapper Kanye West – arguably one of the highest-profile celebrities on the planet, and thus an asset to Trump’s connection with the public. A recent meeting between West and Trump took place in the Oval Office, which received plenty of media fanfare and coverage thanks to how oddly awkward the whole situation was – but beyond this, and barely a few weeks after the pair rekindled their bromance for the world to see, it appears that Kanye is wanting out of politics altogether.

West is famously outspoken and a complex character at the same time – which is why, to many, his recent claims that he is ‘distancing’ himself from politics may not come as all that of a surprise. West appeared to divide many of his fans over his allegiance with Trump, with a recent appearance on Saturday Night Live wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat having also stirred up plenty of fervent discussion. However, while Trump hasn’t directly earned the star’s ire with regard to his proposed distancing, it seems that a political campaign he was unknowingly associated with has triggered his decision.

West claims that his name was being used to ‘spread messages (he doesn’t) believe in’ – with a political phenomenon known as ‘Blexit’ reportedly being to blame. Candace Owens, who has been responsible for the running of Blexit, directly works to encourage black voters to abandon the Democratic Party. Owens claims that West designed apparel to support the campaign – something he has vehemently denied.

“My eyes are now wide open,” the musician tweeted. “I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative.” While Trump doesn’t appear to have come into the equation at all, the media-friendly relationship between the pair may now appear to be over if West’s claims are to be taken as red.

“I support creating jobs and opportunities for people who need them the most,” West continued. “I support prison reform, I support common-sense gun laws that will make our world safer. I support those who risk their lives to serve and protect us and I support holding people who misuse their power accountable.”

“I would like to thank my family, loved ones, and community for supporting my ACTUAL beliefs and my vision for a better world.”
