West shared his support for Trump in multiple tweets on Wednesday. “You don’t have to agree with trump but the mob can’t make me not love him. We are both dragon energy. 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 wrote, before adding, “Obama was in office for eight years and nothing in Chicago changed.”

An hour after his tweet, West shared that his wife Kim Kardashianwasn’t thrilled about his message. “My wife just called me and she wanted me to make this clear to everyone. I don’t agree with everything Trump does. I don’t agree 100% with anyone but myself,” he wrote.

The president also went on Fox and Friends on Thursday and raved about the rapper. “He’s got good taste,” the former Celebrity Apprentice host said. “Kanye looks and he sees black unemployment at the lowest it’s been in the history of our country … He’s smart. He says ‘You know what, Trump is doing a much better job than the Democrats did.’”

Trump and West were spotted meeting at the Trump Tower in New York City in December 2016. “We’ve been friends for a long time … we discuss life,” Trump told reporters at the time.
