West also explained his love of Trump and admitted that he supports the controversial president no matter what African Americans, Hollywood stars, friends and family members tell him to think and say. readers know West got much backlash after he was caught wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, defending Trump’s highly-debated verdicts and suggesting that slavery was a “choice.”

Kardashian even thought about divorcing him after his comments brought the family so much hate—a fact which West brought up in his new song, “Wouldn’t Leave.”

“The main thing that I was stressing is the idea of trying love. We’re always pushing out so much hate, and love can cure so much,” West told Kimmel, still defending his views.

“I think that’s a beautiful thought, but just in literal terms, there are families being torn apart at the border of this country. There are literally families being torn apart as a result of what this president is doing,” fired back Kimmel, ending the show.
