Kanye West has thrown social media into an uproar after he declared his support for Donald Trump.
The controversial rapper's stand should hardly come as a surprise as he has continually proved himself to be divergent.
Kanye made his great reveal while on stage at a concert in San Jose, California, which was heralded with boos and shocked reactions on social media.
Considering the fact that majority of his fellow artists and African American celebrities supported Trump's rival Hillary Clinton, the rapper on-stage speech left much to be desired.
Kanye told the audience on Thursday, November 17, that he would have voted for Trump if at all he had voted.
He said, “Because I’m a celebrity, everyone told me not to say that I loved the debates, I loved his approach."
According to Kanye, Trump would bring about change by exposing racism, neglecting the fact that the billionaire had made racist remarks on more than one occasion.
“If people are racist and they feel more inspired to say how they feel, then they’re exposing themselves.
“To black people — stop focusing on racism. This world is racist, okay? Let’s stop being distracted to focus on that as much,” he said.
Kanye also seemed pretty serious in his plan to run against Trump for Presidency in 2020.
“I don’t say 2020 because I disrespect our president at all. … I’ve just got some ideas about the way we should connect.”
He also suggested that President Barack Obama and Clinton should support Trump by advising him and inadvertently, running the United States through “collective ideas.”
However, Kanye acknowledged that fact that his fan base was not pro-Trump, wondering aloud to the crowd if the rest of his tour would be sold out.
