Kanye West has re-affirmed his support for Donald Trump.
New Year, new Kanye? Not quite. While stating he wanted to "start the year clean" the music icon pretty much immediately slipped into the bad habits of 2018.
Re-affirming his support for Donald Trump, he also criticised the popularity of the Democratic party amongst black voters, saying: "Blacks are 90% Democrats That sounds like control to me..."
From now on I’m performing with my mutherfucking hat on— ye (@kanyewest) January 1, 2019
One of my favorite of many things about what the Trump hat represents to me is that people can’t tell me what to do because I’m black— ye (@kanyewest) January 1, 2019
The quotes didn't sit right with everyone. The 1975's Matty Healy who replied "you should put the news on..." before adding: "I really wanna know what 2010 Kanye would be saying about all of this..."

Man Kanye when I was 20. Like, some kind of God. So much influence on all of us. I really wanna know what 2010 Kanye would be saying about all of this.— matty (@Truman_Black) January 1, 2019
