President Donald Trump gave a shout out to rap producer Kanye West in a tweet on Friday for performing “a great service to the Black Community”. Trump also recognized Chance The Rapper and Dr. Darrell Scott, Senior Pastor of the New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland.
Trump tweeted: “Kanye West has performed a great service to the Black Community – Big things are happening and eyes are being opened for the first time in Decades – Legacy Stuff! Thank you also to Chance and Dr. Darrell Scott, they really get it (lowest Black & Hispanic unemployment in history).”
Kanye angered his Twitter.com followers on Saturday when he tweeted his support of conservative Youtube activist Candace Owens. He continued to red pill his followers by posting an image of himself wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ cap.
Chance The Rapper showed his allegiance to his fellow native Chicagoan by tweeting “Black people don’t have to be Democrats”. But he wasn’t feeling the love from President Trump.

In a tweet on Friday, Chance clarified his support of Kanye, saying it is by no means a show of support for the president.
Singer John Legend reached out to Kanye via text message, imploring him to stop using his influence to sway his followers to leave the Democrat plantation.
Other celebrities have weighed in to either show support for or criticize Kanye.
