Hip-hop superstar and fashion mogul Kanye West began the new year by defending his decision to back President Donald Trump.

“Trump all day,” West wrote on Twitter on Tuesday afternoon, followed by a series of dragon emojis. “Just so in 2019 you know where I stand.”

West again defended his decision to wear a Trump Make America Great Again campaign hat publicly.

“One of my favorite of many things that the trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me who I should do because I’m black. That’s real racism,” he wrote. “From now on I’m performing with my mutherfucking hat on.”

He continued expressing frustration that black Americans were expected to be supporters of Democrats.

“Blacks are 90% Democrats. That sounds like control to me,” he wrote. “They will not program me.”

West shared his thoughts on Twitter after shocking the hip-hop culture by coming out publicly in support of the president. Later that year, he visited Trump in the Oval Office, defying the media and the left for trying to control him.

“2018 was so beautiful,” West wrote. “I got to be myself and nobody had to ‘let me.'”

West also announced that he spoke with legendary podcaster Joe Rogen.
