Trump praises Kanye West after Kimmel appearance

Trump praises Kanye West after Kimmel appearance

"It's not about policies because I'm not a politician like that", West told Kimmel, saying that it had taken him "a year and a half" to work up to wearing a MAGA hat.

The usually verbose artist seemed lost for words when Kimmel asked him why he thought Mr Trump cared about black people, "or any people at all".

While he was particularly stumped after Kimmel brought up his "George Bush doesn't care about black people" comment in reference to Trump, there were otherwise no boring moments during the interview, thanks to some memorable quotes and explanations. "He's like, 'What happened?' I'm like, 'I burned my leg on the motorcycle and I didn't want to tell you.' He's like, 'How long ago?' I'm like, 'Four miles!'" "That's what makes Ye", he told Kimmel.

Kardashian West visited the White House earlier this year to urge Trump to commute the life sentence of Alice Marie Johnson. "It makes me wonder what makes you think Donald Trump does, or any people at all?".

"So, even when I said it right before I went to the hospital and I expressed myself..." About a month later, West met with Trump at Trump Towers. We never approached taking a medication. He also launched into a diatribe about Galileo being an iconoclast, about how "I've never heard of a class that breaks down how you balance a checkbook", and about how people are all "unpaid actors in some giant script that we didn't write". "I'd get kicked out of the black community because blacks, we are supposed to have a monolithic thought, we can only be Democrats and all".

Erdoğan urges Turks to sell dollars and euros to support lira
This is double the level the president imposed on a range of countries earlier this year, including European Union member states. Erdogan downplayed the currency crisis in a speech on Friday, advising Turks not to be anxious over exchange rate fluctuations.

"Whether we like his personality or not, his actions are really what matter", Kimmel said.

He also referred to the May TMZ interview where he said controversial comments like slavery was a "choice" and alluded to being in a "ramped-up state" when speaking to the TMZ reporter. Kimmel thanked West for appearing on the show, to which West replied, "Thank you for the platform". "And that's when you get these comments that just shoot out, nearly like Tourette's", West said.

When Kimmel brought up West's famous statement that "George Bush doesn't care about black people" and poses the question of why he thinks "Donald Trump would care about black people", West remained silent until the host cut to commercial.

West's appearance on Kimmel was the musician's first since 2013 where he discussed the Hollywood Walk of Fame and classism.

"No, I still look at Pornhub", West answered.
