Transcript for Kanye West silent when asked if he believes Trump cares for black people
Your wife was here last week and she was she's very nice and she did something I would imagine your very proud of she went to Washington she spoke to the president. If she actually convinced him to grant clemency to a woman who got life in prison like real life in prison for a first time drug offense. Was that something that you discussed with her before she did it. Where she's super passionate about it and it was amazing for to see that dream come true. We knew at ever concerned about her being alone in the Oval Office with president from. Well he had the player that. A. People got really mad when you were hoping something we're very happy when you said you like president from do you like you think he is a good president. You you're gonna ask it can answer the first question that asked answer what everyone. Well you know. It's it's funny you know in this. World that we live in this two main motivating. Forces and I tweet about it all the time it's love or fear. And you you you can't explain. Luff. You know my cousin. Is locked up for murder and a level and so they did a bad thing but I still level. And just as a musician. African American in. Guy out in Hollywood all these different things you know everyone around me. Tried to take mine candidate for me Newton and then told me every time I set out like trump that I couldn't say it out loud or. My career will be over I can keep up the black community because blacks are whispers have a monolithic all we can only lack can only be Democrats are so. Eight even when I said it right before I went to the hospital. And I express myself. And when I came out I had lost my confidence cited have the confidence to take on the world and the possible backlash and it took me a year and a half. To have the confidence. To stand up and put on the hat. No matter what the consequences. Were and what it represented to me is that about policies and I'm not a politician like that but it represented. It represented overcoming fear. And doing what you felt no matter what. Anyone send saying you can't believe me. Liberals can't believe me news can't believe me the tip our community they can't believe me because at that point if I'm afraid to beat me on the longer day that's what makes yet. And I actually quite. I cried in joy when people. Actually hurt bad to me about certain things you know I enjoyed it. You know we're always. You know. Pushing out so much hate and love can she you're. So much just to think MI moving in love this is out of love not out of pride. Pride of the word that people often say in a positive connotation it's actually one of the seven deadly sands. And it takes too much ownership which you can replace. Pride with love. And it. But I see people just even might go at the president site why that try. Love for one person to stand up against. All ops. And just hug somebody. The way that Alice Johnson hugged her family when she got out of jail. That one by one by one week can defuse. This nuclear bomb of hate that we're in as a society. By thinking of everyone is unfair. And how were we treat our kids how which might. I did a beautiful thought put gas in literal terms are there are families being torn apart. At the border of this country there who are literally families being torn apart as a result. Of what this president is doing and I think that. You know we cannot forget that whether we like his personality or or not the his actions are really what what matter and EU so famously and so powerfully said George Bush doesn't care about black people makes me wonder what makes you think that Donald Trump. Does or any people at all. What are we take a break we'll come back cannot kind.
