West wore Trump’s campaign MAGA hat, urging Americans to rally around the president. He said that the hat was his “superman cape” allowing him to do whatever he wanted.
“We have to release the love throughout the entire country and give opportunities,” he said.
Kanye West spoke for about 20 minutes, discussing his support for Trump and even took questions from reporters.
“I don’t answer questions that are simple soundbites. You are tasting a fine wine, it has multiple notes to it,” he said. “You better play 4D chess with me like Minority Report.”
West talked about growing economic opportunities, rebuilding cities as well as race and culture issues.
Trump praised Kanye’s remarks, which had to be edited by TV censors before it was aired on cable news.
“He can speak for me any time he wants. He’s a smart cookie,” he said. “He gets it.”
“It was from the soul,” West replied, “I just channeled it.”
When reporters asked Trump if he believed that West could be a presidential candidate, Trump replied, “Could very well be.”
“Only after, 2024,” West replied.

“I love this guy right here,” West said.
