Chance the Rapper on Trump-Kanye friendship: ‘Black people don’t have to be democrats’

Chance the Rapper chimed in on social media Wednesday amid fellow artist Kanye West’s Twitter rant, during which the latter shared praise for his “brother” President Trump. “Black people don’t have to be democrats,” Chance tweeted, seemingly referring to West’s tweets. And a follow-up tweet later on read, “Next President gon be independent. The reaction came after West talked politics during the tweetstorm that began Tuesday and carried into Wednesday. “You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him,” West first tweeted. “We are both dragon energy,” he continued. “He is my brother. I love everyone. I don’t agree with everything anyone does. That’s what makes us individuals. And we have the right to independent thought.” He also shared a photo of a “Make America Great Again” hat, which appeared to be signed by the president. The president took to Twitter to thank the rapper for the praise, adding “very cool!”

Kanye isn’t exactly a role model..  But, we’ll give the man credit for taking this stand, which isn’t very popular in the rap community.
