In a press conference revealing that he will sign a pledge that he not run against the Republican Party at Trump Tower in New York City on Thursday, the GOP front-runner responded to a question about his feelings on Kanye West, who Sunday revealed he would seek the presidency in 2020.
“You know what, I’ll never say bad about him,” Trump said. “You know why? Because he loves Trump. He loves Trump. He goes around saying Trump is my all-time hero. So Kanye West, I love him. He says it to everybody. Kanye West, I love him. Maybe in a few years I’ll have to run against him. I don’t know. I’ll take that back. He’s been so nice to me. You people have sort of seen – because I’ve been a counter puncher. I only hit people when they hit me. And Kanye West is so great. I would never say bad things about him because he says such nice things about me.”
